The Sherlocks / September 2017 UK Tour

 
By on Monday, 8th May 2017 at 9:00 am
 

Editor’s note: Ahead of their debut album ‘Live for the Moment’, I noticed that since this original post in May, they’ve added shows in Manchester (bumping a previously announced date in Nottingham forward a day) and Sheffield (well duh, makes sense), so I’ve added them to the list of dates below.

Sheffield alt-rock quartet The Sherlocks have made plans to follow up their busy summer festival schedule with a headline tour of the UK in September. The band’s debut LP ‘Live for the Moment’ is due out on the 18th of August and features the single ‘Chasing Shadows’. At the bottom of the page, below the tour date listing, you’ll find the promo video for ‘Chasing Shadows’, which was filmed at live gigs in Manchester and Sheffield earlier this year.

Tickets for the following shows are available now. You can find a complete list of The Sherlocks’ upcoming live dates, including festival appearances, on their official Web site. TGTF’s past coverage of The Sherlocks is right back here.

Thursday 14th September 2017 – Newcastle University
Friday 15th September 2017 – Manchester Academy (date added after original post)
Saturday 16th September 2017 – Nottingham Rock City (moved forward from Friday the 15th)
Tuesday 19th September 2017 – Glasgow ABC

Thursday 21st September 2017 – Southampton 1865

Public Service Broadcasting / October 2017 UK Tour

 
By on Wednesday, 19th April 2017 at 8:00 am
 

In case you’ve been living under a rock, a few weeks ago Public Service Broadcasting announced details on their third album, ‘Every Valley’, which will chronicle the coal mining industry in South Wales. The first taster from the album, ‘Progress’, is a definite nod to Kraftwerk instrumentally, and it features the vocals of Camera Obscura‘s Traceyanne Campbell, only the second PSB track to feature a guest vocalist. (Watch the video for the song featured as a past Video of the Moment here.) The new album will also feature James Dean Bradfield, of course famous from being a member of the iconic Welsh rock band Manic Street Preachers.

Naturally, to promote the new record and to ease J. Willgoose Esq. and co.’s itchy feet, our favourite history nerds have announced a massive UK tour for October 2017. Fittingly, their journey begins on the 13th of October in Cardiff. Tickets go on general sale this Friday, the 21st of April, at 9 AM; fans on their mailing list will have early access to tickets starting today at 9 AM.To read more on TGTF on Public Service Broadcasting, go here.
