Aussie Band LONGREEF Comes to Iron Horse Cafe

These guys will be at the Iron Horse Cafe on both April 20th and June 14. I figure I'll pass it along to you guys with a video of what you can expect from a live show. 


Here's the promotional stuff I was sent. I really enjoy just passing this stuff along to you. I get a shit ton of it.


Second Single - "She Likes The Ladies" - to Hit Radio in March

“Bottom line, Longreef bring the post-grunge, dirty guitar sound the modern hard rock
masses adore and those masses should find plenty to appreciate on Dirty Motel, which does
exactly what an EP is supposed to do—leave you begging for more.”
Aussie rock band LONGREEF (Josh Barker, Tristan Davies, Nick Miller, Jim Wark) return from the holidays with a year-long tour throughout the United States. The band continue to support their sophomore EP, Dirty Motel, which was released on June 12, 2012.  The 5-track EP has seen some great coverage since its' release.  LONGREEF has been featured in a variety of outlets including Loudwire, Toledo Free Press, Arkansas Democrat Gazette, Rock Music Report, Huffington Post, Bloody Disgusting, Artist Direct, Hard Rock Haven and more.  They played over 200 shows in 2012 and performed with Puddle of Mudd, Blue Oyster Cult, Serj Tankien and more.  The band also made stops along the tour routes in 2012 to perform on a few morning shows and to visit the folks at Fearless Radio in Chicago.  LONGREEF performed "Want Me Back" which Artist Direct calls a "radio-friendly, mid-tempo jam that we predict you play over and over again", on the national morning show Daytime TV while in Tampa.  They also stopped by Your Carolina TV, Scene on 7 and Fox 10 TV.  Radio fell in love with the first single, the EP's title track.  "Dirty Motel" saw plays across the country including adds in Spokane, Chicago, Charleston, Lubbock, Biloxi (where it went to #4!), Ocean City, Baltimore, DC and on Sirius and Music Choice.    
“LONGREEF is one of those bands that the first time you hear them you are blown away, and the more you hear, the more you realize what a phenomenal and solid band they really are.”
- BlogPensacola

LONGREEF came to the States in 2010 to write and record their self-titled debut EP that was released in 2011.  The band found a home in Florida and began touring relentlessly in support of their debut.  For 12 months they stayed on the road and played more than 150 shows across 11 states and 30 cities.  The band has headlined shows and has also shared the stage with some big names including Bush, 30 Seconds to Mars, Stone Temple Pilots, Seether, Taproot, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus and more.  The first single off their self-titled debut – “Lonely” – reached 33 on Billboard’s Top 40 R&R Indicator charts.
