Sheffield’s finest Reverend and The Makers return with a new single ‘The Devil’s Radio’ on 7th July and announce a set of UK summer festivals with appearances at The Libertines’ British Summer Time, T in the Park and Camden Rocks before preparing for their 10th year anniversary Sheffield’s shows at the O2 Academy where the band will play ‘The State Of Things’ and ‘French Kiss in The Chaos’ in their entirety on 24th October followed by ‘@Reverend_Makers’ and ‘Thirty Two’ on 25th October.
Produced by Youth (Primal Scream) and electronic producer James Welsh (Hypercolour), the lover’s rock-influenced single is taken from the band’s latest album ‘ThirtyTwo’. The release is the second highest chart entry ever for the band at No.13 on the Official Album Chart bringing their tally to four consecutive Top Twenty albums.
The band took its music directly to the fans through a Pledge Music pre-order campaign and by playing 32 house gigs in the living rooms of the lucky fans that have pre-ordered the album.
The Direct-to-Fan album’s engagement didn’t stop there. ‘Thirty Two’ album artwork itself gave fans extra exclusive video content visible by downloading the free augmented reality app Aurasma and following on from the huge success of the now sold out Reverend Summer Ale the band have collaborated again with Thornbridge Brewery to produce the Reverend American Brown Ale which was launched in tandem with the album.
