Living for the moment, The Sherlocks announce debut album and release video for 'Chasing Shadows'
Words: Ellie Ward
The Sherlocks have today announced the release of their long-awaited debut album ‘Live For The Moment’.
Produced by Gavin Monaghan and recorded at Rockfield Studios in Wales, the Sheffield four-piece precede its release on August 18 with a brand new video for single ‘Chasing Shadows’, out June 10 on Infectious Records.
Watch the video below, which was shot by Luke Thompson and features live footage from The Sherlocks’ headline shows in Manchester and Sheffield earlier this year.
“'Chasing Shadows' has always been a fan favourite! It's a stadium-esqe anthem, huge chorus!!” says drummer Brandon Crook.
The band add in a statement: “The time has finally come…what started as a hobby has incredibly turned into a career. But this is all down to our fans for investing their time into our band. The amount of people calling for this album is truly overwhelming and we know this is the right time to share it. We’ve genuinely worked so hard for this and put everything into this album, down to the very last detail.
"Everything about this album feels incredibly special…4 lads from the middle of nowhere. This is what makes our story so special, that the people have decided to back a real band and we will be forever grateful to them for that. Our lives have completely changed over the last few years, we started this band around 7 years ago as friends jamming a few songs out together in my dad’s garage.
Over 1200 gigs later, we’re now here announcing something we will be eternally proud of. We can’t wait for you to hear it in its entirety. This one’s for you.
This journey has only just begun… LIVE FOR THE MOMENT x "
