INDIE rockers The Sherlocks have just confirmed that they’ve been invited to support Liam Gallagher on his European tour next year. which includes a date in Bournemouth.

Singer songwriter Kiaran Crook told the Echo: “It’s an honour to be invited by Liam Gallagher to support him on his European Tour. We’ve all grown up listening to Oasis, so it’s a big deal for us. He’s a top man to be around as well. It’s gonna be a mega tour and we’re looking forward to getting out there!”

The tour announcement coincides with the release of their single Will You Be There?described as an indie dancefloor filler with 2lively drumming, powerful guitar riffs and an instantly catchy chorus”.

Kiaran’s brother, Brandon who plays drums said about the song: “It’s about the notion of when you’re doing well and everybody wants to know you…as opposed to when you’re going through a rough time and people jump off board and forget you. We’re asking who will be the ones still there because they truly believe in what we’re doing? ‘Will You Be There’ seemed like the title to sum the whole thing up.”

The Sherlocks, consisting of two sets of brothers, have been steadily building a solid live following and were the first unsigned band since Arctic Monkeys to sell out their local venue.

This year has already seen them supporting both Kings Of Leon and Richard Ashcroft on their arena tours as well as numerous festival dates.

With support from the likes of Steve Lamacq, Annie Mac, Mistajam & Huw Stephens, this is a young band following in the great tradition of guitar groups from their area.

The Sherlocks have drawn obvious comparisons from their influencers (The Jam, The Clash, Arctic Monkeys) but this is a band with unquenchable ambition intending to create their own unique sound and already captivating new audiences. foot, with driving guitar riffs and melodic lyrical hooks, they charge through their debut.”

n The Sherlocks will be at The Old Fire Station on February 6 next year. They’ll be back playing anthems from their critically acclaimed debut album, Live For The Moment. Tickets available from
