RISING stars The Sherlocks have gone back to their early days for the title of their first album, which was revealed today.
The band of brothers from Bolton on Dearne will release Live for the Moment — also the name of their debut single — August 18 through Infectious Records.
Former Wath Comprehensive students Kiaran and Brandon Crook and ex-St Pius School pupils Andy and Josh Davidson this week released a brand new video for the single Chasing Shadows, with the single download set to follow on June 10.
The song, which dates back to 2013, has become a live favourite with fans — and drummer Brandon described it as “a stadium-esque anthem, huge chorus.”
The video was shot by Luke Thompson and features some raucous live footage from The Sherlocks’ headline shows in Manchester and Sheffield earlier this year, encapsulating the exhilaration of the shows and the excitement of their fans.
Chasing Shadows’ is a common finale in their live sets with the song telling relatable lyrics of a drunken night out.
News of the album and single follows the announcement The Sherlocks will support Kings of Leon in the same week they release the new single.
The album was recorded at the legendary Rockfield Studios in Wales and produced by Gavin Monaghan.
The track listing, featuring many familiar songs and several new compositions, is as follows:
1. Will You Be There
2. Live For The Moment
4. Chasing Shadows
6. Nobody Knows
7. Was It Really Worth It
8. Turn The Clock
9. Last Night
10. Heart Of Gold
The band said in a message to fans this week: “The time has finally come — what started as a hobby has incredibly turned into a career.
“But this is all down to our fans for investing their time into our band.
“The amount of people calling for this album is truly overwhelming and we know this is the right time to share it.
“We’ve genuinely worked so hard for this and put everything into this album, down to the very last detail.
Everything about this album feels incredibly special — four lads from the middle of nowhere.
“This is what makes our story so special, that the people have decided to back a real band and we will be forever grateful to them for that.
“Our lives have completely changed over the last few years, we started this band around seven years ago as friends jamming a few songs out together in the garage.
“Over 1,200 gigs later, we’re now here announcing something we will be eternally proud of.
“We can't wait for you to hear it in its entirety. This one’s for you.
“This journey has only just begun. Live for the Moment!”
