Sheffield four-piece The Sherlocks reveal new single 'Will You Be There?' set for release on September 15 via Infectious Records.
The band - consisting of two sets of brothers - have been steadily building a solid fanbase snd reputation for their live show, and were the first unsigned band since Arctic Monkeys to sell out their local venue the Sheffield Leadmill.
Read our live review here from their recent London Scams show.
The infectious 'Will You Be There?' is an indie dance floor filler that is sure to garner them even more fans, with its lively drumming, powerful guitar riffs and an instantly catchy chorus with vocalist Kiaran Crook confidently delivering: "When they all start falling / will you be there / will you be there? / And when you hear them calling / will you be there to pick them up?"
Says drummer Brandon Cook: "It's basically about the notion of when you're doing well and everybody wants to know you and cling on to you, as opposed to when you're going through a rough time and most people jump offboard and forget you. Who will be the ones still with you because they truly believe in what you're doing as much as you? 'Will You Be There?' seemed like the title to sum the whole meaning up really."
The band are currently midway through their present UK tour, and if you want 'to be there', you may well have to beg, borrow or plead to higher forces if you haven't a ticket as all remaining dates are sold out.
