The Shermans

The Shermans

BandRockPop

It's the sound of The Bluetones on a 60-a-day fag habbit, tossing an extra razor blade into the Vox amp. Rasping guitar, throaty vocal and swinging rhythm reinvent throwing in an addictive Fratelli-esque chorus stripped of the irritation factor

Biography

The Shermans started gigging and within a few gigs they had acquired a legion of fans across Central Scotland with their brand of catchy songs.

The guys have earned support slots at the Glasgow Barrowlands, The Carling Academy and played with established acts such as Sergeant, The Tiny Dancers, From The Jam, The Wallbirds and The Ronnelles, Cage the elephant and performed at 2007s Live At Loch Lomond music festival.

The band independently released their debut single Calling It Wrong on September 10th 2007 which reached number 23 in the UK indie charts and number 20 in the Scottish charts on its first week. It has been featured 3 times on Sky Soccer AM and has been played on Northsound, XFM, Radio Scotland and Radio 2.

All single reviews have supported and praised the band for their catchy songs, including a feature in the Sunday Mail.

The Shermans next single, Venom is set for release on April 13th 2009 and we're confident it will top the sales of the previous single. So far it has received positive feedback from plays on Northsound and on Jim Gellatlys most recent podcast (episode 22).
