About The Raven Age

Melodic metal band the Raven Age formed in London in 2009. The project initially began when George Harris (son of Iron Maiden bassist Steve Harris) and Dan Wright started writing music together. Eventually they had amassed a body of material that inspired them to form a full band. By 2013, the Raven Age was a fully formed quintet, with Matt Cox joining on bass and backing vocals, Michael Burrough on lead vocals, and Jai Patel on drums. Harris explained that the name of the band was inspired by the mythology surrounding the ravens that reside in the Tower of London. Legend has it that if the ravens ever leave, the tower and monarchy will fall. The band released their self-titled debut EP in 2014. The self-funded EP reached number one on Amazon's Hot New Release Chart without the aid of press or a label. In 2016 they were on the verge of launching their first album, but prior to that they supported Iron Maiden on their Book of Souls tour, and also toured with Mastodon, Gojira, Opeth, and Ghost. Having built a solid reputation through their live shows and an EP, the band signed to BMG for their debut long-player. Darkness Will Rise came out in December 2016, and was preceded by the lead single "Salem's Fate," which was inspired by the Salem Witch trials of 1692. ~ Bekki Bemrose
