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.”

Glass Caves

Friday 19th March

Academy 3

Bursting from the streets to the radio one playlist, picking up plaudits from Clashmusic, Billboard and a number of international music blogs along the way Glass Caves have built a following across the North of England busking from city to city.

Glass Caves fuse agitated rhythms and yo-yoing guitars with vocal harmonies that splinter then soar through their songs. The band draw from a number of classic international influences and put them through a very British filter resulting in a perfectly formed morsels of ballsy alt-rock.

Mayhem

Tuesday 23rd March

Academy 2

By the power of darkness and with the might of black-hearted will no two Mayhem albums have been or will ever be the same. Over the course of Mayhem’s storied and ground breaking 35-year career—from Deathcrush (1987) through Esoteric Warfare (2014)—the Norwegians have continuously challenged the orthodoxy of the genre they helped create. In 2019, Mayhem released their latest studio album, Daemon.
Daemon isn’t a direct follow-up to Esoteric Warfare. Like all Mayhem albums of their time, Daemon is unto itself. Indeed, this album also isn’t a new chapter in Mayhem’s storied career. Rather, it’s a new tone, authoritative yet wild in character.  Daemon is change, an opportunity for the maw of hell to open wider. The album was also the byproduct of irascible and captious individuals. Anger, frustration, and the continued struggle to push—at whatever cost—the band’s music forward were at the dark heart of Mayhem’s newest album.
The five-year wait for Daemon is something all fans prepared for, with the understanding that Mayhem, in whatever guise it presents itself, will always return greater than before, stronger than ever yet still true to its roots.
The success of Daemon becomes evident on the international chart results. Mayhem reached No. 18 in the German Album Charts, No. 8 in the Finnish Combined Charts, No. 4 Finnish Physical Charts and No. 35 in the Austrian Album Charts. In November 2019 Mayhem toured alongside GosT and Gaahls Wyrd through Europe and sold out most of their shows.

The Undertones

+ Special Guests: Hugh Cornwell Electric

Saturday 27th March

Academy 2

The Undertones emerged from Derry, Northern Ireland in 1974, the result of five friends learning how to play basic rock and roll. Even by the standards of that decade, Derry was not the rock and roll capital of anywhere and with no live bands worth watching, they learned their trade by listening to mail order records, reading one of the few copies of NME that made it to Derry but most of all from listening to John Peel’s show on BBC Radio One.

Practicing in their bedrooms eventually led to the band recording ‘Teenage Kicks’ in 1978 on Terri Hooley's Good Vibrations label in Belfast. A copy was sent to the legendary DJ John Peel and he liked the track so much he played it twice in a row on his radio show!

Eventually signing to Sire Records, ‘Teenage Kicks’ was re-released, resulting in the band's first appearance on Top of the Pops.  Over the next five years, John O’Neill, his younger brother Damian, Feargal Sharkey, Billy Doherty and Michael Bradley crafted numerous punkpop gems and would go on to release 13 singles and 4 studio LP’s, before disbanding in May 1983.

In 1999 The Undertones reconvened, without Feargal Sharkey, to once again perform their two-minute, three and a half chord songs to a new generation of fans in Derry. Fellow Derryman Paul McLoone replaced Sharkey on vocals and his vocal prowess and electric onstage presence soon convinced any doubters that he was more than capable of doing the job.

After much consideration the band released an LP of new songs called `Get What You Need', which was critically acclaimed by Q magazine, Uncut, Rolling Stone and Hot Press. Songs like ‘Thrill Me’, ‘I Need Your Love The Way It Used To Be’ and ‘Everything But You' showed that the art of writing short, sharp songs had not been lost over the previous two decades.

Live The Undertones present a glorious set of classic tracks taken from what are considered by many fans and critics to be some of the best punk albums of all time, adding to them a
whole bucketful of their iconic guitar pop hits & anthems, Get Over You, Jimmy Jimmy, My Perfect Cousin, You’ve Got My Number, Julie Ocean, Wednesday Week, and, of course, Teenage Kicks.
