Indie rockers The Sherlocks went back to the classroom when they played a surprise gig at their former school in Wath.

The Sheffield-based four piece cracked the top 50 singles chart earlier this year and have supported major bands like Simple Minds, Reverend & The Makers, The Buzzcocks and The Enemy.

But they took time out to visit Wath Comprehensive School, which was attended by brothers Kiaran (vocals/guitar) and Brandon (drums) Crook.

They played a few songs in front of an excited audience of pupils and staff.

The band posted on Facebook last Tuesday: “We went back to Kiaran and Brandon’s old school Wath Comp this morning to play a few tunes for the students!”

This is not the first time they have treated school pupils to a free gig either as they played at Sacred Heart Primary School in Goldthorpe earlier this year, the former school of guitarist Josh Davidson.

The band released their latest single, ‘Heart of Gold’, on Friday and are hoping it will crack the top 40 in the Official UK Singles Chart. They came close earlier this year when their song ‘Escapade’ reached number 45.

They band formed after brothers Josh and Andy (bass) Davidson moved in next door to brothers Kiaran and Brandon’s grandparents.

The two pairs of brothers were inspired by their favourite artists including Arctic Monkeys, The Beatles and Oasis and formed the group in 2010.

Since then, The Sherlocks have played more than 500 gigs, including the Leeds and Reading Festival earlier this year.

They are in the middle of a UK tour. Visit thesherlocksmusic.co.uk for ticket details.
