Reef To Release First Album Since 2000

Glastonbury’s Reef have recorded their first album in nearly two decades.

‘Revelation’ will be follow-up Reef’s last album ‘Getaway’ in 2000.

The album was recorded in Ireland and has been produced by long-time collaborator George Drakoulias (The Black Crowes, Primal Scream, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers). The album features a guest vocal from Sheryl Crow on lead single ‘My Sweet Love’, a song they have been kicking around in the live set for years.

“We didn’t want to just make a good record, we wanted to make a great record,” says Reef vocalist Gary Stringer of ‘Revelation’. “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.”

“Recording in Ireland was really special,” adds guitarist Jesse Wood. “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!”

Reef formed in Glastonbury, England in 1993. Their second album Glow, featuring the song ‘Raise Your Hands’ reached no 18 in Australia. The song peaked at no 28 in 1996.

Reef ‘Revelation’ will be released in May.
