The Crookes have a new single that’s just had it’s debut spin on Steve Lamacq‘s BBC6 Music show and it’s really rather worth checking out.

It’s under the name of Play Dumb, and will be released with accompanying B side Before The Night Falls, later this month.

It’s snarling, has one rather funky guitar line and is very very good, as with everything this band ever seem to come up with.

Their 3rd studio album, following the ever masterful Hold Fast, is called Soapbox and is released on 14.04.14 in the UK via Fierce Panda while their UK & Europe tour dates are announced at 7pm on Wednesday (15th).
