Reef announce UK headline tour

Reef have announced they’ll headline 13 UK shows next year.

They’ll hit the road with Ronnie Wood’s son Jesse, who took over guitar duties from Kenwyn House earlier this year for the run of shows starting in March 2015.

House left after 20 years with the group to concentrate on his psychedelic rock project Goldray which left Reef members Gary Stringer, Jack Bessant and Dominic Greensmith with “sad vibes.”

They said: “We’ve also been remembering the great memories we share together, as well as all the music we made and tours we’ve done all over the world.”

The band will also support British rock veterans Thunder on their three UK dates, also in March – gigs Reef frontman Stringer is particularly looking forward to.

He said: “They’ve carved out their own path without conforming to anybody else’s ideals. We can’t wait to get on stage with them and have a huge party.”

Reef have also produced two tracks for upcoming film Winter. Barking At Trees and You Got It will launch next month on CD single and 7-inch vinyl.
