Reckless Love, who kick off their UK tour on Thursday October 4th at The Barfly Camden, started their career with the name Reckless Life, under which they initially played covers of Guns N' Roses. Having had no success with this approach, they began to write their own songs, and finally won the Kuopio Band Competition in 2004.

As part of the Kuopio Popcity Project 2005, Reckless Love, along with Rainbow Crash, Svat and Sideshow Zombies went on a Scandinavian tour, visiting Sweden, Norway and Denmark.

2007 saw Olli Herman (also known as H Olliver Twisted) cover as the singer for the Swedish hair Metal band Crashdïet, as their singer (Dave Lepard) committed suicide in January 2006. One and a half years later, Olli Herman returns to Reckless Love. In January 2009, the website of Reckless Love announced that drummer Mike Harley would leave the band. Hardly a week later a replacement was found: Hessu Maxx.

The musical style of the band had undergone a major change over the years and, finally, on 23 April 2009, a record deal with Universal Music was made. In July 2009, Reckless Love released their first single, 'One More Time'. In August, they reached number two in the 'YleX' radio station's charts in Finland.

The second single, 'Beautiful Bomb', released on 15th October 2009, reached number four. The band also shot a music video for this single, which premiered on MTV in December 2009. On 20 February 2010 the third single and second music video, 'Romance', was released. Four days later the debut album, 'Reckless Love', was released. This album was available in the Baltic States, Belgium and the UK, as well as in Finland. The Japanese version was released in July 2010. A release into the German and Swedish markets is still under discussion. The album debuted at number 13 in Finland's official charts.



The band released their follow-up album, 'Animal Attraction', On October 5th 2011. The first single, 'Hot', was released on April 18th 2011 and the single 'Animal Attraction' was released on September 12th 2011.

Reckless Love will embark on a UK and Ireland Tour with seven dates, six of which are headline acts. Reckless Love will play the following dates:

Support on this night comes from local favourites Voodoo Six.

Voodoo Six's first album, 'First Hit For Free', was released on Universal Music in Japan in 2007 and in the UK/Europe on White Knuckle/Locomotive Records in March 2008 with a new song 'Faith' added and a brand new re-mix by uber studio engineer Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Aerosmith, Metallica, Yngwie Malmsteen, etc).



Following the album's release, the band toured in the UK in support of their first album. Summer slots at the Download Festival and Bloodstock Festival followed these dates. Then a full six-week headline tour of the UK in September 2009 ensued before the band travelled on to Europe where they were the opening act for re-formed Boston rockers Extreme in October/November 2008.

2009 saw the band playing at the HammerFest Festival in March and followed soon after by a sold out performance at the Scala in London for their homecoming end of tour gig after a hectic twelve months of almost non-stop touring.

In April 2009 vocalist Luke Purdie replaced Henry Rundell. Hailing from a blues/rock background, Luke had been playing guitar and singing since he was 10 years old and toured the world in his parents’ band when he was 15.

All the tracks were produced and engineered by Tony Newton.

A digital EP was released in March 2010 – 'A Little Something For You'. To tie in with this Voodoo Six played their first live shows with the new line up, in London and Southampton – both sold out.

On the strength of this - and with the support of Planet Rock radio - Voodoo Six were then asked to be special guests on The Union (Luke Morley) UK tour and UFO on their UK & European tour in March/April. The band then made an epic appearance at the Sonisphere festival at Knebworth Park in August.



Voodoo Six's new album 'Fluke?' was released on 18th October 2010. A full UK tour throughout October/November/December in support of the album.

Luke Purdie - lead vocals
Matt Pearce - lead/rhythm guitar, backing vocals
Chris Jones - lead/rhythm guitar, backing vocals
Tony Newton - bass guitar, backing vocals
Joe Lazarus - drums
