Aussie rock band Longreef (Josh Barker, Aaron Carruthers, Nick Miller, Jim Wark) continue to tour throughout the States in support of their sophomore EP, Dirty Motel. Released on June 12, the 5-track EP follows their critically acclaimed self-titled debut, which was released in 2011.
The band continue to do what they do best - perform live - and will be on the road through the fall playing to sold out shows across the States.
Reviews for the EP have been rolling in and the first single, the EP's title track, is seeing major love at radio. The song is currently being played throughout the country including adds in Spokane, Chicago, Charleston, Lubbock, Biloxi, Ocean City and more. The song can also be heard on Sirius and Music Choice.
Longreef made some stops along the tour routes to perform on a few morning shows and to visit the folks at Fearless Radio in Chicago. The band 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 last month!
