Reverend & The Makers have announced a short run of US tour dates as their ‘@Reverend_Makers‘ album prepares for a North American release on March 5th.
The Sheffield band are due in Brooklyn on March 11th for a show with The Enemy at The Knitting Factory, and then have two official gigs booked at the South By Southwest Festival in Austin when they will appear at the British Music Council and End Records showcases on March 13th and 14th. A second date with The Enemy follows on March 20th at the Roxy in Hollywood.
Ahead of the UK release of their third album in June last year, Live4ever sat down with Jon McClure to discuss how the band has embraced the new digital age on their new record – something neatly epitomised in its title.
“Things have changed in music more in the last five years then they did in the preceding fifty,” McClure told us. “There’s pros and cons with that, but yeah the net is ace. For the speed of delivery and the connection with fans not through anyone else’s porthole but like my own words. Direct to the fans. Kinda liberating really.”
