Melodic rock heroes Dan Reed Network have announced details of their U.K. tour in support of latest release 'Fight Another Day'. The quintet will play eleven dates across the U.K. in March 2017.
Support on all dates (with the exception of Sheffield) will come from rising U.K. outfit Vega. The full list of shows can be viewed below.
Says bandleader Dan Reed about the dates: “Dan Pred, Brion James, Melvin Brannon II, Rob Daiker and I are really looking forward to playing many new and unique venues throughout the U.K., and rockin' up the funk hard core and meeting all those who are able to attend and bring down the house with us. We thank you for the many years of support and especially believing that we had new music in us to offer! We are forever grateful for you all being there with us on this journey!”
Dan Reed Network’s latest studio album 'Fight Another Day' was released in June 2016, via Frontiers Music. The album marked a significant and anticipated return of one of the most infectious and gifted bands to come out in the melodic rock world in the second part of the 1980’s.
Speaking exclusively to eonmusic about the disc, the band's first in an incredible twenty-three years, Reed explained the ethos behind its title. Said the singer: "'Fight Another Day’ asks; are we willing to be strong enough, or brave enough to use compassion as a weapon, as opposed to weapons as weapons?"
Originally formed in Portland, Oregon, Dan Reed Network packed out local clubs from late 1984 through 1986 with their compelling mix of musical styles ranging from hard rock, funk and soul. The band went on to release three albums, including the Nile Rogers produced 'Slam' in 1989.
