UK rockers REEF will release their new album, Shoot Me Your Ace on April 15 in Australia via Aussie rock label, Dinner For Wolves.
The band recently released a raw and ripping new skater video for lupine banger Wolfman, the album’s new single.
Shot in Cornwall UK, it features Ben Grove from alternative skate group SCUM as The Wolfman, alongside other skaters such as Rosie Kliskey, a finalist in the UK Women’s Street Skateboarding Championships, and Eddie Belvedere one of the professional team at Death Skateboards
Ben Groves comments, “I got a call from Gary (Stringer, Reef vocalist) asking if I would be up for getting involved and putting something together for the track and I instantly knew what I wanted to do. I immediately called Skateboard photographer and film maker Danny Parker and then we rounded up the guys. Skating with a Wolfmask on in the rain was pretty crazy and it wasn’t even a full moon.”
Wolfman is a huge groove laden track, as heavy as it is funky. Gary Stringer’s raw vocals lead the charge alongside screaming guitar lines and a rhythm section more solid than a slab of granite. It’s set to explode across live stages later this spring.
It was released along with double A-side track Right On, which is a beautiful and uplifting anthem, a burst of pure positivity, illustrating the more chilled-out side of the acclaimed British band.
Both tracks are taken from their eagerly anticipated new album Shoot Me Your Ace, which will be released on April 15.
One of the most thrilling rock albums of recent years, Shoot Me Your Ace was produced by Andy Taylor (Duran Duran) who also plays guitar on the album, and is a thrilling blast of unadulterated rock’n’roll joy. It doesn’t just match such classic Reef albums as 1995 breakout debut Replenish or 1997’s transcendent Glow but exceeds them.
After two years of uncertainty, despondency and gloom, it feels like an outpouring of positivity. As Gary Stringer puts it: “It’s the sound the world needs right now.”
Shoot Me Your Ace will be released on a variety of formats including CD, black vinyl, coloured vinyl, cassette and digital.
