RavenEye (@ItsRavenEye) Nominated For Best New Band By Planet Rock & Announce London date‏

UK Trio RavenEye, who released their debut EP “Breaking Out” last year to rave reviews, have just been nominated in the Best New Band category at Planet Rock’s The Rocks 2016 awards.  The band have also announced their first headline London show at Islington Garage for February 16th. This will be the final date of their UK tour which kicked off on January 21st.   Tickets are £7 available here:  www.ticketweb.co.uk/event/aji1602u  At the same time the band will be releasing the track ‘Hey, Hey Yeah’ as a single:  https://soundcloud.com/itsraveneye/hey-hey-yeah-1/s-lh2OH

Last year saw the band touring as main support to Slash in both Europe and America, where they received a ton of great reviews, as well as playing headline slots of their own at The Viper Room, L.A. and the Billboard Lounge N.Y.

Even though he’s still only 25 year sold, Oli Brown, singer and multi award winning guitarist, has already released four solo albums and toured the world for 10 years with legends such as Jeff Beck, Buddy Guy, Johnny Winter and Joe Satriani.  He recorded the 5 tracks on “Breaking Out” before teaming up with drummer Kev Hickman and bassist Aaron Spiers to take the songs out live – et voilà – RavenEye was born.

Classic Rock called the EP’s lead track ‘Breaking Out’ a ‘filthy monster of a song’.  Listen here:  https://soundcloud.com/itsraveneye/breaking-out.  The band have also been confirmed on a number of US and European Festival dates.
