A shy excuse of a post to let you all know that The Crookes, who’ve established themselves as one of my favourite bands among the five (that’s quite a lot y’know) times i’ve seen them in the past year or so in living rooms and giant fields across the land, have announced the release of their third studio album under the name Soapbox.

It’s out on 14th April this year and if the taster video and their back catalogue is anything to go by, it might be a tough one to beat to the Album Of The Year gong already
