Reef: 93/03 - The Ultimate Boxset - PRE ORDER NOW!
London , November 18th – Celebrated Brit rockers, REEF, announce details of an exceptional and innovative box set and two exclusive gigs in a world class recording studio.
PledgeMusic has teamed up with the Metropolis Group to release a very special Ultimate Collectors box set for the band, which will be made available for pre-order on November 18th 2011.
This new partnership will provide a direct-to-fan project giving REEF followers the chance to get first access and exclusive bonus content with the release of this new product.
In addition, REEF are making available a range of unique ‘pledger only’ items to their fans via be http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/reef which include:
• Signed REEF photographs
• Signed drumskins and sticks
• Limited edition T-Shirts
• Boxset & gig ticket bundles
On 26th March 2012 REEF release their complete recorded works in this all-encompassing box set. Spanning across their ten year career, the 9 CD and 1 DVD package features every commercial song recorded, including their very first demo ‘The Purple Tape’ – which lead to the band being signed to Sony - as well as b-sides, demos, live tracks, rarities and previously un-released and un-heard material. The DVD includes all music promo videos, TV appearances and interviews and some home movie footage capturing the story of this iconic ‘90’s band.
Beautifully packaged the box set also contains a 64-page booklet featuring never-before-seen pictures of the band, a 12” vinyl of their newly arranged 5th album (Lucky #5), a vintage poster and a replica demo of their ‘Purple Tape’ sessions.
Gary Stringer, lead singer of REEF says: “We are properly stoked to finally have all the REEF music in one place ...... we’ve enjoyed looking back at our original 10 year blast from a fresh perspective and now fans and new friends alike can do the same with this great box set.”
To coincide with the release, the band will be playing two exclusive shows for 100 people at West London’s Metropolis Studios on 16th and 17th March 2012. To gain tickets, fans will need to pre-order the box set (priced at £200 inc. ticket, or £125 without) http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/reef. Further exclusives will be available via Pledge Music.
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.
This incredible box set compiles all these phenomenal successes and lovingly documents the story of how West Country’s finest sons went from fledgling band to one of the best loved rock acts of the nineties.

REEF - New adventures and summer festivities
Reef are confirmed to play the Lusty Glaze Festival on Sunday May 29, 2011 when all this dim, depressing, dismal weather will be a distant memory. In theory.
This is the first announcement of what we hope will be a run of festivals in the summer. But it does seem a long way off in January..
What, you ask, are the Reef folk up to in between times?
Dom is writing and working on the finer details of the new Black Swan Effect album which will be recorded in Paris at Charlie Winston’s studio. We will keep you posted on that.
While continuing to tour this isle, Gary & Jack’s wonderful StringerBessant album Yard is taking a new turn in early 2011 with a PLEDGE MUSIC campaign where you can get involved from the ground up on new releases - in this case the new EP - plus a whole myriad of exciting packages all of which give a portion of the profit to Surfers Against Sewage.
Kenwyn is continuing to write and record with his new project Goldray, currently in the rehearsal studio in London with vocalist Leah Rasmussen and drummer Paul Winter-Hart (Kula Shaker), getting the first album finished up and preparing for a string of live dates scheduled for February, March and April of next year.
We’ll keep you posted on all new shows, side projects and releases right here.

Templeton Pek do 30 Seconds To The Charts
Back in the heady days of 2010 when Reef were playing in Wolverhampton, they were joined by opening band TEMPLETON PEK who know where things belong. Where they are at. What is the what. Yes yes.
This three a side squad are looking to do something superb to help out the Teenage Cancer Trust and so Reef thought it best to spread the word. You can too.
Here’s the plot.
They are going to release the SHORTEST SONG ever to rattle the cages of the pop charts - 30 Seconds Too Far is out on January 31 and all proceeds go to Teenage Cancer Trust so do the right thing and pick this tune up on iTunes or, if killer rock and pop is not your thing but doing the right thing is, you can always donate directly here. Let’s help them do this, for those that help are our kind of people!

REEF - New additions to the summer
After an amazing early part of the summer spent cavorting around at the Isle Of Wight Festival, Glastonbury Festival, and Cornbury Festival with utterly flabbergasting responses which left the band speechless, REEF packed up their back line into the vast shed whilst Gary & Jack made ready for a new release - no, not what you’re thinking, not the entirely splendid StringerBessant “Yard” album (available on Xtra Mile Records now) - but a new baby, each!
Jonah and Gladys recently joined us so it’s sleepless nights for an entirely different and wonderful reason until the the band head out on the road again next month. Another festival has been confirmed for September with the Temple House Festival in Ireland on 11 September adding to Bingley Music Live on 4 September and LemonFest on 18 September. Show details with ticket links are available on the site in the forthcoming events section.
Thanks again for the overwhelming support at the festivals, it was truly a pleasure.
Dom, Gary, Jack and Kenwyn

Apologies if you are trying for tickets already - Mr. Over Excitable here sent an e mail saying they would be available today, when they are not available until Friday. I just sacked myself.
Once again, we are offering a extremely limited VIP option at each show where you can come to the soundcheck, meet the band, get exclusive early access to the merchandise stall and, if Bowler gets his way, take part in a Reef Quiz with the overall countrywide winner getting something really special. Most likely a night out with Bowler. Possibly not.
See you soon hopefully
Five shows, winter 2010.
Dom, Gary, Jack & Kenwyn
