Artist Of The Week

These Reigning Days is made up of three experienced musicians that include Dan Steer (lead vocals), Joe Sansome (drums) and Jonny Finnis (bass/vocals). The trio have now firmly established themselves on the musical landscape as a formidable and impressive live band with strong songwriting skills. They’re one of the most promising unsigned U.K. rock bands with global potential to emerge in recent years since Coldplay, Muse, Keane and Radiohead. The forthcoming album, Opera of Love, produced by Yoad Nevo (Air, Morcheeba, Goldfrapp), was remixed by Grammy Award winner Adrian Bushby (Muse, Foo Fighters) and is expected to be released on September 21st. These Reigning Days are no strangers to the road, either; they’ve supported Bon Jovi in Milan, Italy at the San Siro stadium in front of 80,000 screaming fans (and had a No.1 rock single on the Italian charts) and they performed at the main stage of 2013’s Polish Woodstock. They just performed at the V-ROX Festival in Vladivostok, Russia a couple of weeks ago and are gigging throughout Europe for the next couple of months as well as preparing for major city tour dates in India with MTV and VH1 India. The band recently garnered support on XFM UK as well as early support on key influential U.S., German and Australian radio stations.
