Flamboyant Finnish rockers RECKLESS LOVE and Portland USA funk rock heros DAN REED NETWORK announce a co-headline UK tour.

Commencing in Southampton on 1st March 2021 and running through to the Electric Ballroom in London on the 11th, this nine-date trek sees the party-conscious pairing come together for a show that promises to be one of the most entertaining of the year.

Support on all shows comes from rising Scottish outfit, Mason Hill.

Ahead of the tour, RECKLESS LOVE will release their highly anticipated follow-up to 2016’s InVader via Spinefarm Records in the UK.

DAN REED PROJECT will also release new studio album Let’s Hear It For The King in time for the tour.

“We are so incredibly excited to be coming back to the UK,” says RECKLESS LOVE frontman Olli Herman“It feels like forever since we last toured over there and we have missed it dearly. Although we’re heading over as a part of our Merry Metal Madness world tour, the rock fans of the UK will always have an extra special place in our hearts. They were the first to welcome us, even before the audiences in our home country, when we began our career way back in 2010. We will never forget that. During the past decade, we’ve gathered countless brilliant memories from the road while performing to our fellow Merry Metallers in the UK. Now, we are back for more. We cannot wait to see you all again and we hope that all of our listeners and followers will turn up to celebrate with us. We’re gonna be dealing out ludicrously massive doses of good-time and feel-good anthems!”

Dan Reed adds: "We cannot wait to get out on tour in early 2021 to test these songs out co-headlining with the stellar high energy band Reckless Love and the powerful Mason Hill supporting.”

Livewire The AC/DC Show

Friday 25th March

Academy 2

 

AC/DC, arguably the greatest rock band of all time, are brought to life by Live/Wire with the true passion you would expect from professional musicians who share your love of this legendary live act. They deliver a critically acclaimed High Voltage two hour rock ’n’ roll set with not only cannons and a full bank of Marshall amps but a journey that takes fans from one of the best-selling albums of all time ‘Back in Black’ through to the 2020 release ‘PWR UP’, with a healthy dose of the classics from the Bon Scott era.

  

The Live/Wire show combines the vocal power of Podge Blacksmith as Brian Johnson, the virtuoso talent of Simon Davies as Angus Young and rhythmic accuracy of Dan Mosley as Malcolm Young. The line-up is completed by Eddie Clark as bassist Cliff Williams and Paul Alwin combining the groove of Phil Rudd and thunderous energy of Chris Slade on drums.

 

With over 20 years of touring under their belt, Live/Wire put the audience right in the middle of a live experience comparable to that only AC/DC themselves produce. We invite AC/DC fans to join us, sing with us and relive some of those classic AC/DC concerts of the past on our very own Highway to Hell.

Not much is known of the LA-based R&B-Pop male/female duo, but it has been speculated that when Adele’s vocal coach and Drake’s engineer met at a bat mitzvah in 2017, the band was instantly born. A+V, described by critics and fans alike as experimental and futuristic, are the physical manifestation of alternative r&b, soul and funk (do we like these 3 words?). Provocateurs extraordinaire, Emotional Oranges have been unanimously lauded everywhere from Complex, Fader, Paper, VIBE, Highsnobiety to Hypebeast, BBC1, MTV & more. They have established themselves as one of the most exciting new acts without ever even revealing themselves. Their debut singles, “Motion” and “Personal” immediately created a cult following. The Juice Vol. I and Vol. II have amassed over 250 million streams globally. In 2021, they released their first collaborative mixtape, The Juicebox. With features such as Vince Staples, Channel Tres, Kiana Ledé, Becky G and more, the duo reached to shatter genre boundaries on The Juicebox mixtape. Lollapalooza and Life is Beautiful will kick off The Sad Fruit Tour as A+V venture across 24 US cities this Fall. Emotional Oranges is still hard at work with world renowned botanists to create their own type of orange, and recently invested in to property to start vertical farming all different species of oranges. The juice is certainly worth the squeeze.

“Emotional Oranges sound like pure euphoria, with love songs caked in the ecstasy of a retro groove...sleek, icy-warm male-female harmonies and breezy R. & B.-pop production”

THE NEW YORKER

"Pop anthems that ooze a warm funk energy"

THE FADER

“Their music sounds like the lovechild of Sade and Janet Jackson: soulful R&B sprinkled with intimate and playful lyrics.”

The Beths hail from the vibrant and deeply collaborative music community of Auckland, New Zealand. Lead vocalist and guitarist Elizabeth Stokes met guitarist Jonathan Pearce and bassist Benjamin Sinclair while they were all in bands in high school. While playing underground gigs around Auckland, they befriended drummer Tristan Deck, who joined the group in 2019. Their blend of propulsive, sing-along choruses, four-part vocal arrangements, and wry, introspective lyrics has earned them fans around the world, as well as opening slots for indie rock titans like The Breeders, Pixies, Weezer, and Death Cab for Cutie. 

 

After putting out their first EP Warm Blood in 2016, The Beths signed to Carpark Records, who issued their 2018 debut album Future Me Hates Me. The record’s irresistible pop rock hooks drew acclaim from Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, NPR, Stereogum, the A.V. Club, and a host of other publications, many of whom listed Future Me Hates Me among their favorite LPs of 2018. The album also made the shortlist for New Zealand’s 2018 Taite Music Prize, and Stokes has twice been nominated for the Silver Scroll Award, New Zealand’s most prestigious songwriting honor. In 2019, The Beths were nominated for five Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards, winning Best Group and Best Alternative Artist.

 

After touring the northern hemisphere for a year and a half in 2018 and 2019, The Beths regrouped to write and record their second album, Jump Rope Gazers, a sparkling collection of songs that deepens and expands the bright talent they showed on their early releases. Bonds between the band members only grew after spending so much time on the road together, and their camaraderie shows on their new work. Recorded and produced by Pearce in his Auckland studio, Jump Rope Gazers will be released by Carpark in 2020, a year that promises to bring The Beths’ delightful music to even more new listeners.
