Dan Reed Network’s Pretty Karma is Released along with New UK Tour Dates

We’re not out of it yet… Dan Reed Network has had to reschedule their February 2022 UK co-headline UK tour with Reckless Love and special guest Collateral to August and September 2022.

“The ongoing instability caused by the pandemic has made it impossible for Dan Reed Network and Reckless Love to travel to the UK and throughout Europe,” Reed related.

“This decision has not been made lightly,” he added “We were determined to give these shows as much of a chance of happening as possible, however it is now clear that the world is not yet in a secure enough position for us to be confident about traversing countries with shows unaffected by covid.

“There is the added caveat that when we return to play our first shows in what now will be well over two years, we want to do this in true DRN fashion and that means freely interacting with those who want to come and hang out with the band post shows. Our live performances are fuelled by our interactions with you all, before, during and after our shows!” 

Tickets for all shows remain valid, and for those now seeking to attend the new dates you are advised to click here and her

In line with this, the band’s new album Let’s Hear It For The King, originally slated for 4th March, has been moved to a new release date of Friday 17th June. You can pre-order it from here.

On the plus side, to coincide with the new album release date the band was pleased to be able to announce that they will be performing at the HRH AOR Festival in Manchester in June as well as hosting an album launch party in Hamburg in conjunction with their record label Drakkar Entertainment. Apparently, there will be further announcements regarding this June release.

Alas, for European fans, the shows planned for Norway & Belgium have been unable to be rescheduled to coincide with these new tour dates and as a result all tickets previously purchased will be eligible for a refund.  

Alongside this good and not-so-good news comes the timely arrival of the band’s second single from the upcoming new album Let’s Hear It For The King, in a track called ‘Pretty Karma’.

You can stream the new single here and catch the lyric video to it right here at RAMzine?

“The reception to the first single ‘Starlight’ was truly incredible,” said Reed. “We’re determined to keep our foot to the floor. ‘Pretty Karma’ is the perfect track for that, and we hope this track keeps the anticipation levels for Let’s Hear It For the King simmering on high.”

Finally, for those of you who are part of the Networkers Facebook group or a supporter of the band’s Patreon page, Reed will now be performing both solo and bringing down his bassist Bengan Jonasson and drummer Robert Ikiz from Sweden and it going to rock it up big time at The Networkers show in Newcastle on 27th February.

All tickets remain valid but are refundable if you’d like to hold out to see the full Network, but Reed is apparently “excited to reunite with everyone” for this one-off performance.  A few tickets remain at the time of writing. For more information, join the Patreon or Networkers Facebook page.
