The Manchester and Liverpool gigs are two of 12 dates they will headline across October and November 2023.
People Like Me & You marks The Sherlocks’ fourth album, all landing in quick successful since their 2017 debut Live For The Moment. The album features their latest single Sirens, which finds them going darker and grittier than before but yet more embracing of hooks. Vocalist / guitarist Kiaran Crook says, “Sirens is an all-out banger, but what I love about this tune is how edgy it is for a single. It just felt like the perfect one to come back with and kick the front door off. This tune just carries the energy along with tonnes of confidence to make people prick their ears up and be reminded that this band ain’t going anywhere!”
The track, written by Kiaran Crook and produced by Al Groves, gives a taste of what is to come from People Like Me & You, with Kiaran explaining, “The new album is honestly full of really good songs with strong choruses. When we were going in to make this album, we went in there with ideas as opposed to fully fledged songs and I believe that’s where the magic lies in this record. We went with our gut every single time when it came to making decisions about the structures, the lyrics and all the sounds used to create something we would be proud of and I’m absolutely blown away with how it has turned out.
“I genuinely believe it’s our best record yet for one simple reason – we’ve all been a lot more open to ideas and trying things we perhaps wouldn’t have in the past which has only widened the spectrum of where we can go next. I’m so excited about this record and I know the fans are gonna love it!”
