The Crooks played a number of sell-out shows in England and Scotland last year, taking the music industry by the scruff of its neck.

Lockdown means Jack Knight, Chris Stones, Duncan Couch, Conor Fletcher and Jonathan Keeler, are currently unable to promote their new release live but, according to The Crooks’ Facebook page, they will be performing at Birmingham’s The Sunflower Lounge on July 17, 2020.
