NEWS: Reef Announce Winter Tour

After a glorious and effortless run of shows this Spring and some select festival appearances over the summer, including the storming home-coming frenzy on the Saturday afternoon at Glastonbury , the West Country’s favourite sons will head out again on the road this autumn.

Having enjoyed the best gigs and festivals appearances of their lives and really appreciated the fervent support from the fans on their sold out April shows, Gary, Jack, Kenwyn and Dom have decided it was too much fun not to do it all over again.

REEF formed in 1993, signing to Sony imprint S2 Records the following year. Their debut 1995 album REPLENISH achieved Gold status and saw the band play shows with the Rolling Stones, Paul Weller and Soundgarden.

The follow up to Replenish, 1997’s GLOW stormed the UK Charts at Number 1 and included the single ‘Place Your Hands’. In 1999 the band released RIDES (George Drakoulias) and in the same year the band saw off the likes of Oasis and Pulp to win the Music Industry’s Soccer Six competition.  Rides was followed by the poppier sounding GETAWAY produced by Al Clay (Pixies, Stereophonics) in 2000 which was most notable for the single ‘Set The Record Straight’.  Always a favourite at shows and Festivals alike, the band made many high profile appearances during this period, including Glastonbury and Reading festivals.

TOGETHER – THE BEST OF REEF was released by S2 in 2003. It was around then that he band decided to take an extended break from Reef. They have been working on several projects in the interim including Dominic playing with Mick Jones (The Clash) and Tony James (Gen X) in Carbon/Silicon and Gary and Jack forming THEM IS ME and releasing their debut album in 2008 and now the new StringerBessant album Yard which will be released in July 2010 on Xtra Mile Recordings.
