« Esoteric, Saturnalia Temple and Velnias add dates after Stella Natura fest (including NYC at Saint Vitus w/ Evoken) | Jennifer O'Connor, Doug Gillard and more playing a memorial concert for The Fort Studio owner James Bentley »
Sheffield UK act The Crookes have been at it since 2008 or so, crafting wordy, jangly Britpop, most recently on last year's Hold Fast which added some "whoa-oh" anthemicism to the mix. That album is getting a belated North American release on October 1 via Modern Outsider. You can check out videos from LP singles, "Bear's Blood" and "Dance in Colour" below.
Shortly before that, The Crookes are coming to the U.S. for a little media gladhanding and will do two shows in NYC while here: September 17 at Bowery Electric with Love Jupiter and Andrew James; and September 19 at Union Hall with Los Encantados and Young Rising Sons. No advance tickets to Bowery Electric, but tickets for the Union Hall show are on sale now. They're the only North American dates the band have scheduled.
