Sheffield, UK-based romantics, The Crookes, are pleased to announce their latest record, SOAPBOX. Available April 15, 2014 on Modern Outsider, the LP features ten tracks of their most mature and cohesive work to date. To celebrate the release, The Crookes are dropping the video and stream of the lead single via BBC.
“The idea of the “Outsider” underscores many of the songs. It was never intentional, but upon reflection it was clear that feelings of alienation and frustration was a gauze through which all the music was filtered, explains Guitarist Daniel Hopewell. “As a band we have always been outsiders. Over the last few years have found a strange sense of belonging in the underground. Wherever we go we always seem to find/cause chaos, but we embrace that world.”
