Below is the conversation I had with Rob Reece regarding the new album.

Rob: ‘Do you want to hear our new single? Its out in September. Its Mammoth, we’ve been told it sounds like audioslave meets Bonjovi and Metallica at a Crossroads.

Me (after listening to the single): Oh wow, that sounds awesome! A bit meatier than previous tracks!

Rob: Yeah that’s the way we are going.

Me: I’m excited for you guys!

Rob: Thanks Deb, the album is very diverse though, as we wrote songs over a 12 month period, so the band has developed its sound.

Me: That’s great, the transition from your earlier songs to your new sound will be on the album, so a bit of something for everyone!

Rob: Yeah, IGNITED was one of the last songs written as well as the ballad on the album which is really stripped back to just acoustic and vocals, no drums.

Me: Well I am looking forward to hearing the full album closer to the release date Rob, wish you all the best and hope to see you soon!

So to those of you who enjoy a smooth sounding melodic rock, and those who like a heavier, meatier rock sound……. look out for REECE and their new album IGNITED which is being released in September 2017!
