RavenEye are currently in the Welsh countryside recording the follow-up to their debut full length album Nova while gearing up for a busy 2019. The band recently signed a new record deal that will see their highly anticipate next record released worldwide via Golden Robot Records’ partners in the USA, Europe and Japan.
RavenEye founder guitarist and vocalist Oli Brown said “We’re very grateful to sign with and now become a part of the Golden Robot family. It’s very important to be with a label that cares about the band and honours our musical vision. GRR is putting everything into making this next record the best one yet for us. It’s exciting times for RavenEye we’ve written so many songs to prepare for this record and now we have a label and the means to create it without any compromise.”
Mark Alexander-Erber Group Founder and President commented on the signing: “Rock is back, well it never went away really, and we at Golden Robot Records have been watching RavenEye from the start. They have all the ingredients of a brilliant rock band but stand above the pack with their attitude, ethic and of course, their killer songs! We couldn’t be prouder of having the boys join the family and are looking forward to helping them take over the world!”
Oli Brown had been making a name for himself solo prior to forming RavenEye. He’d released four solo albums and toured the world for a decade with such players as Jeff Beck, Buddy Guy, Johnny Winter, Joe Satriani. Classic Rock Magazine described him as “One of the best and brightest guitar heroes in the world today.”
Channelling those skills and praise into a fully-fledged band, Brown, along with Aussie-born bassist Aaron Spiers formed RavenEye and have been slamming audiences with their signature heavy riffs and high energy live show all over Europe ever since along with drummer Adam Breeze. With nods to influences such as Led Zeppelin, Soundgarden and QOTSA, RavenEye punch out big riffs, even bigger harmonies and the world has taken notice. Releasing the Breaking Out EP digitally in 2015, they quickly followed with debut full length album Nova and received critical attention alongside international rock radio airplay..
All this had lead to RavenEye securing major support tours around the world, opening for the likes of Slash with Myles Kennedy, The Darkness and Joe Satriani in the US, Aerosmith, Slash w/ Myles Kennedy, Bush, Halestorm, Blues Pills and Deep Purple across Europe as well as Kiss on their 2017 European arena tour. That’s putting aside various international festival appearances.
Motley Crue’s Nikki Sixx said of the band: “Keep an eye on RavenEye. They are organic, raw and I hear a real ‘70s influence with these guys. When a band like this nails it, you never forget it.”
Come next January RavenEye put in their second appearance on Shiprocked before a full UK headline tour in February and March, with extensive US and European tours and festivals currently being scheduled for the rest of 2019.
