Premiering last Friday on Kerrang.com, the slick performance video sees the Devon boys laying it all on the line, destroying guitars and putting every last drop of blood, sweat and tears into a performance reminiscent of the mind-blowing live show that they’re currently touring the UK with.
Throwing their gargantuan guitar riffs and made-for-radio choruses into the pot, the band have created a shining example of how huge a three-piece can sound. “Renegade” was again produced by Jamie Evans (Mexicolas) and mixed by Ade Bushby (Foo Fighters/Muse) and demonstrates why Reigning Days are being tipped as the rock band to watch out for in 2016.
The brand new single follows “Friendly Fire”, the blistering track that was released at the end of last year to high critical acclaim. After also receiving a video premiere on Kerrang.com, the track leapt straight into the Top 10 in the Kerrang! Charts and Scuzz TV charts as well as numerous radio playlists, including Planet Rock, gaining spins on the Radio 1 Rock Show.
Reigning Days are currently on the road touring 13 nights across the UK, supporting fellow up-and-coming 3-piece RavenEye. The band will also be heading out on a UK stint with Detroit party rockers Wilson, plus additional headline shows and an intimate performance at London’s Black Heart in Camden supporting Highly Suspect.
The three-piece, made up of Dan Steer, Jonny Finnis and Joe Sansome, recently gave a hugely well-received performance at this year’s CMJ SESAC Showcase in New York. Prior to that, they spent the last 18 months honing their sound and have notched up some impressive main stage international appearances including festivals in Russia, India, Poland, America and the UK. Support slots with the likes of Lower Than Atlantis, Enter Shikari and The 1975 have cemented their live credentials.
With early support from Radio 1, KROQ in the US, and some big festival announcements coming soon, Reigning Days are poised to smash through this year.
