Reach Will ‘Reach Out To Rock’ On March 4th
February 25, 2015
Swedish hard rockers Reach will release their debut album, ‘Reach Out To Rock’, on March 4th via Sun Hill Production/Cargo Records.
‘Reach Out To Rock’ was mixed by sound maestro Pontus Norgren from Hammerfall and Poodles, recorded and produced by the duo of Erik Modin and Johannes Hennoks, with artwork design handled by Morgan Hassel. In March the band will join Gus G (Ozzy Osbourne guitarist) on his Swedish tour and then team up with Eclipse on their UK trek — not to mention a slot at the HRH AOR 3 Festival.
Reach was put together in 2012 by drummer Marcus Johansson and guitarist Ludvig Turner. Together they started looking for band members to complete the group, and found the remaining puzzle pieces in bass player David Jones and vocalist Alex Waghorn. Among the first thing Reach did to reveal this new line-up was to arrange a hard rock cover of Avicii’s super hit “Wake Me Up” in August 2013. The cover was a huge success, and about one year later the video has over a million views and still counting.
Reach’s music can be described as classic rock with strong melodies and hooks, complemented by their youthfull energy. You can hear influences from Whitesnake, Scorpions, Europe and Gary Moore in the songs. Ludvig Turner also put melodic rock on the map on Swedish television in 2014 by making his own interpretations of major hits and being among the final four in the Swedish Idol contest.
In early 2014 the band released a single, “Black Lady”, to show their song writing abilities and prove they weren’t just a cover band. In December 2014, having secured a deal with Sun Hill Production, Reach released a first single, “You Called My Name”, from the forthcoming album ‘Reach Out To Rock’.
Despite their young age, Reach are already experienced festival performers, having played HRH (UK), Frontiers (IT), Vasby Rock (SE), and Skogsrojet (SE).
