Before then they embark upon their second tour of the year so far in the company of Little Comets in April.

There will be a Crookes single release to coincide on May 27th, featuring the tracks 'Dance In Colour' and 'Bear's Blood'. As befits the true Crookesaholic working spirit, both tunes will be brand new and indeed never-released-anywhere-else-before. Ever.

Rest assured that by the time these dates takes place the boys will have made a return trip to SXSW in Austin in March, and quite probably written and recorded the bulk of their third album on any spare afternoons off. Such is like with the fast-living, fringe-loving foursome who have made a virtue of a work ethic which would cause palpitations along half of Easy Street, Dalstonland.

Over the past four years The Crookes have lived the sprightly, slightly poetic leftfield DIY dream by releasing one mini-album, two full albums and a slew of jaggedly romantic indiepop singles, as well as tour their tyres off in hot pursuit of international glory. In the autumn of 2012 alone they hit ten different countries in 21 dates across Europe in support of their current 'Hold Fast' longplayer and went straight into another string of UK dates which featured a sold old Lexington gig and culminated in a headline show at Sheffield Leadmill, their biggest hometown appearance so far. There's some kind of theme occurring here.

The Crookes are still George (bass / vocals), Daniel (guitar), Tom (guitar) and Russ (drums). Long may they reign with a love of The Supremes.
