June 7th will see The Sherlocks celebrate the 10th anniversary of their first ever release by playing a special 7500-capacity homecoming show at Sheffield’s Don Valley Bowl. Building towards what will surely be an unforgettable occasion for the band and their fans alike, The Sherlocks today share the brand new single ‘Death of Me’.

‘Death of Me’ is a twist on The Sherlocks’ sound, their flair for anthemic larger-than-life hooks, feelgood vibes and energetic escapism now leaning into synth-rock territory without losing any of their dynamic spark. Lyrically it’s perfectly circular for this moment in time – their first demo release in 2014 celebrated the rush of being able to ‘Live For The Moment’ and that idea is explored again here, albeit from the perspective of adult life rather than the naivety of youth. The track was produced by David Radahd-Jones.

Vocalist/guitarist Kiaran Crook says, “This feels like the freshest thing we’ve done in a while in the sense that we know we can write and record rock ‘n’ roll tunes no problem, and don’t get me wrong we love doing that! But this song came about and immediately felt different, almost like it wasn’t crying out for guitars quite as much. We gave the song a minimalistic approach in many ways and I think it ended up sounding like nothing we’ve done before because of that.”

Drummer Brandon Crook adds, “This song is a pure sing-a-long anthem, made for the big outdoor gigs and festivals. We feel like we’ve taken another huge leap forward sonically. The whole tune feels youthful and uplifting. Can’t wait to play this one live for everyone!”

A postcard recap of The Sherlocks’ journey to this moment: brothers Kiaran and Brandon Crook formed the band in Bolton upon Dearne in South Yorkshire, and their early buzz saw them become the first unsigned band to sell-out Sheffield’s Leadmill since Arctic Monkeys. Their rise was cemented with shows with Liam Gallagher, Kaiser Chiefs and The Libertines while their debut album, ‘Live For The Moment’, debuted at #6.

The band’s line-up evolved after their second set, ‘Under The Sky’, with the addition of Alex Procter (guitar) and Trent Jackson (bass). Their resurgence was fired up in 2021 as they returned to the Top 10 with ‘World I Understand’ before last year’s ‘People Like You & Me’ was confirmed as their most acclaimed and highest charting album to date with a #4 chart position.

Now The Sherlocks are set to celebrate all they have achieved and everything to come by fulfilling their dream to headline Don Valley Bowl. Featuring a strong support line-up – Red Rum Club, The Clause, Apollo Junction and The Lilacs.
