REEF, the West Country quartet, are touring their new album Revelation.

It is their first studio album since Getaway in 2000 and their first album with new guitarist, Jesse Wood.

The album was recorded in Ireland and has been produced by long-time collaborator George Drakoulias. The album features a guest vocal from Sheryl Crow on lead single My Sweet Love.

Reef are bringing this exciting new album to Bridgwater this Friday.

Vocalist, Gary Stringer, said: “We didn’t want to just make a good record, we wanted to make a great record. We were writing the songs for two and a half years, road-testing them when we were on tour.

“We’d play four or five new songs every night, really watching the crowd. If their eyes glazed over or they went to the bar, then we dropped those songs!

“But if a song engaged with them – a melody they can hook into, a guitar riff – then that was a real pointer for how we went about it. Hopefully that’s helped make the album is as strong as it is.”

Guitarist, Jesse Wood, added: “Recording in Ireland was really special. It’s always been a magical place for me and we spent a few great weeks there with George. I already can’t wait to make the next album!”

In 2016, Reef returned with their first single since 2003, How I Got Over, which was A-Listed at Radio 2 and saw the band perform live on Chris Evans’ radio show and on The One Show on BBC1.

Reef are coming to Blake Hall in Bridgwater this Friday (August 23 2019). To book visit
