Earlier this year, DAN REED NETWORK released their new album “Fight Another Day” via Frontiers Music srl. The album marked the first album in 25 years from one of the most infectious and gifted bands to come out in the Melodic Rock World in the second part of the 80’s.
The band’s multiple hit singles and albums between 1987 and 1991 in places like the UK and Scandinavia indicate that there is something uniquely appealing about DRN’s hybrid sound and multi-racial line-up. They toured with Bon Jovi and the Rolling Stones. Then Dan Reed walked away from the music at the height of his fame.
The release of the new album has been accompanied by the first Dan Reed Network shows in decades. Sold-out shows in the UK and Europe were accompanied by rave reviews.
And now the band returns to the road in the US! In support of “Fight Another Day” DAN REED NETWORK have scheduled a handful dates in The US including stops on both the East and West coast. The dates are listed below.
DAN REED NETWORK:
10/11: New York, NY @ Iridium Jazz Club
10/12: Teaneck, NJ @ Mexicali Live
10/14: Los Angeles, CA @ The Whisky
10/21: Seattle, WA @ El Corazon
10/22: Portland, OR @ Star Theater
DAN commented on the upcoming tour:
“This will be the first time DRN has performed in New York, New Jersey and Los Angeles in over 20 years and the band is truly excited about returning to the US after reuniting, making a new studio album and after having performed some amazing club shows and rock festivals in Europe! We have such great memories of playing to packed houses at the Cat Club and The World’s End in NYC, and our sold out show at The Roxy in LA still ranks as one of our favorite shows of our career back in the day! DRN will be kickin’ up the funk rock and performing a ton of DRN classics and new tracks from our 2016 album ‘Fight Another Day’, and truly can’t wait to get everyone’s reaction to the live set once again!”
“Fight Another Day” is available for purchase via iTunes and Amazon.

The new album was recorded primarily in the hometown of members of DRN, Portland, Oregon, while most of the writing process took place in Dan Reed’s private studio in Prague in the Czech Republic, where Reed currently resides with his family. Demos were sent back and forth between Derek Shulman (A&R for Frontiers), Brion James, Melvin Brannon Jr. and Rob Daiker, making notes and refining the songs over great distances via the Internet. This process was not unlike with DRN composed songs back in the late 80’s and early 90’s as Dan Reed used to demo out songs on his Akai 12 track machine and bring the songs into rehearsals where the band members would then arrange and flesh out the band’s classic ‘funk rock’ sound.
