The Band: THE CROOKES

The Release: 'BEAR'S BLOOD' / 'DANCE IN COLOUR'

The Formats: LIMITED EDITION 7" & DOWNLOAD SINGLE

The Release Date: MAY 27TH 2013

The Label: fierce panda (The Catalogue Number: NING 259)

The Truth: Erudite NewPop dreamers THE CROOKES, who had a frankly magnificent time headlining the Scala in London on May 21st 2013 as part of the fierce panda label's 19th birthday celebrations, release a double AA-side 7 single featuring two cracking never-released-before tracks Bears Blood and Dance In Colour on May 27th.

Bears Blood they consider to be their heaviest song thus far. This is perhaps unsurprising when one considers that it was written about a potent drink they discovered on tour in Slovenia which, legend has it, is made by a man who lives in the woods who is the only person who knows the ingredients. Rather excellently, The Crookes are currently working with Sheffield-based micro brewery The Brew Company to create their own Bears Blood beer, which one suspects will be slightly less mysterious and lethal than its Slovenian counterpart.

The slightly more languid Dance In Colour meanwhile was the first song written since the release of last years sophomore album Hold Fast. It features guitarist Tom playing piano and if that wasnt classy enough the video stars Ferdinand Kingsley (son of Sir Ben), who they met when they played The Troxy in February. Better still you can see the videos for both tracks right now at

Such is life on with the workaholic THE CROOKES, a band never knowingly undercooked when it comes to recording or touring. Already in 2013 they have been around the UK twice with Richard Hawley and Little Comets, popped across to Austin for SXSW and recorded the new single in a spare weekend off. Next up come a pawful of festival hoedowns, which look something like this:

JUNE 29TH LEEDS THE COCKPIT Q FEST
JULY 6TH / 7TH LIVERPOOL X&Y FESTIVAL
JULY 21ST SHEFFIELD TRAMLINES FESTIVAL
JULY 27TH REDHILL REDFEST
