The Crookes

The Leadmill - see stage times

 

Since their inception during their Sheffield college years, The Crookes have dedicated themselves to working hard, writing hard and touring even harder.  They have played live sessions on BBC Radio stations 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6, and in the U.S. scooped a highly prized KEXP session on their first headline trip to the States. 

The band is looking forward to releasing new material later this year, after experimenting with a purer, more focussed style of songwriting and paying more attention on its sonic aspects and production values. The Crookes upcoming fourth record follows previous releases ‘Dreams of Another Day’ EP (2010), ‘Chasing After Ghosts’ (2011), ‘Hold Fast’ (2012), and ‘Soapbox’ (2014).

With ‘Soapbox’ they’ve crafted yet another gem in a growing catalogue of near-perfect guitar-based pop” - Popmatters.com 8/10
