Reverend and the Makers have announced a 17 date acoustic UK tour to be played this summer featuring lead singer Jon MClure and guitarist Ed Cosens. The shows will run from 8th June until 19th July and will see them hit venues in Wrexham, Worthing, Bristol, London, Tunbridge, Norwich, Margate, Hertford, St Albans, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Newcastle, Stockton, Sunderland, Hull, York & Lincoln.

With an unbroken run of 6 Top 20 albums to date, the band's seventh offering ‘Heatwave In The Cold North’ looks likely to follow suit. It could even find itself placed in the top 10, a first to do so since their debut 16 years ago. The opening single from forthcoming album of the same name ‘Heatwave In The Cold North’, has become their biggest hit in over a decade. The hazy, sun drenched Barry
White-inspired soul bop, was added to Radio 2’s B list and named their Record of the Week. The track became a Top 10 UK airplay chart fixture as the summer came to a close. This was followed by the softly spangled psychedelic soul of ‘High’, an ode to Isaac Hayes, Curtis Mayfrield and long hazy afternoons. As well as typically catchy ear-worm ‘Problems’. The fourth and final single before the album release was ’A Letter To My 21 Year Old Self’.

Ahead of this release Jon has launched a campaign for fans to send in a letter that they’ve written to their own 21 Year Old Selves. They formed part of a pop-up exhibition/ mass therapy session in Fagans Pub, Sheffield that gave locals the chance to come along and meet Jon, get an exclusive listen to the album & have a pint. His friends and supporters have already got involved with the likes of Brian Eno, Mel C, Jeremy Corbyn, Carl Barat, Joey Barton, Helen Chamberlain, Steve Lamacq, Richard Hawley + more writing letters for the exhibition. Many went on to comment on how cathartic they had found the experience.

Never resting on their laurels and constantly striving to challenge perceptions of the band, Reverend and the Makers have become one of the enduring and great survivors of the British music scene. With a career spanning two decades Jon McClure and his collective of musicians burst onto the scene with their Top 5 charting debut album, ‘The State of Things’. The album spawned the UK top 10 single "Heavyweight Champion of the World". The five albums since have seen the band move through several incarnations, sounds and line ups and experience all the highs, and most of the lows, that the music industry has to offer. Each album has reached the Top 20 of the UK album charts, an impressive unbroken run of six albums. These albums have seen them cut across a creative spectrum, ranging from collective efforts to the frontman’s singular visions. Instead, The Makers is
more a sobriquet, a statement of intent, a commitment and a guiding principle that has seen McClure consistently strive to build, innovate and grow musically and artistically.

The Reverend’s story is one of the great survival stories of the music industry as charisma, talent, defiance and sheer willpower sees the band start a new chapter reenergized and raring to go. With a point to prove, with ‘Heatwave In The Cold North’, Reverend And The Makers set about the task in hand armed to the teeth with an arsenal of their biggest, best and most accessible and ambitious songs to date.
