The four-piece will also debut comeback single End of The Earth at Sheffield City Hall and give some clues on how their forthcoming third album will sound.

The performance will also be a first chance to see new guitarist Alex Procter and new bassist Trent Jackson alongside Bolton upon Dearne frontman and songwriter Kiaran Crook and his brother and drummer Brandon.

The original line-up were last in Sheffield in front of more than 2,000 fans at O2 Academy in February 2020 and were one of the last acts to complete a UK tour before lockdown.

In July, Kiaran, Brandon, Alex and Trent spent three weeks at Rockfield Studios in Monmouthshire recording the band's third album with one of the country’s top music producers, Dave Eringa, who has worked with Manic Street Preachers for more than 30 years.

The yet unnamed record is now mixed, mastered and ready and the band has also filmed several music videos, including scenes at Sheffield FlyDSA Arena.

The Sherlocks have previously headlined city venues Plug, The Foundry and The Leadmill and Brandon said the lads will tour again soon to give a shot in the arm to grassroots venues that have been hit hard by coronavirus.

“We want to help put the live music industry back on its feet. Our band was built on playing smaller venues and without them we would be nothing,” he said.
