Glastonbury quartet REEF have released their brand new single, ‘Best Of Me’, accompanied by a brilliant lyric video, which brings their album art to life, featuring musical skeletons, wolfman skateboarders and glorious animation.
A stomping AC/DC-style rocker, it’s another intoxicating taste of their forthcoming new album, Shoot Me Your Ace, and sure to set rooms alight on their headline tour next month.
“We want this album to make people just feel good about living, to appreciate life, to give them inspiration to play guitar or drums or sing or whatever they’ve got going on right now,” comments bassist Jack Bessant. “We’ve made a killer rock’n’roll record. And we want to go out and rock.”
And that’s just what REEF are going to do when they head out on their nationwide tour in April supported by fellow Britrockers A and a number of up-and-coming local artists as the opening acts. The dates are as follows:
Thurs Apr 7th Newcastle University
Fri Apr 8th Glasgow QMU

One of the most exciting rock albums of recent years, Shoot Me Your Ace 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.
Shoot Me Your Ace will be released on a variety of formats including CD, black vinyl, coloured vinyl, cassette and digital. Due to vinyl manufacturing issues the release date has now been moved back by two weeks to April 29th 2022.
