Britpop outfit Reef head off on tour this February with multiple dates spread across the UK. 

Fronted by Gary Stringer, Reef emerged during the apex of Britpop. They altered from the atypical sound that was heavily prominent at the time, releasing revered songs like 'Place Your Hands'. 

Harking earlier rock influences from the sixties, their sound garnered a huge cult following. More so when their track 'Naked' taken from debut album Replenish appeared on a Sony TV advert. 

Number one record Glow soon followed, an album that cast a huge legacy for the band as one of torch bearers of the early nineties sub-genre. Mirroring their days of constant touring, this run of dates marks the band's first since 2010.
