This week's featured band in The Artist Spotlight is from the United Kingdom. The Raven Age recently released their second album "Conspiracy" which featured today's song, "Fleur De Lis."
I had a chance to interview their guitarist, George Harris about the band's formation, their most recent album and more. Take a read below.
Myself and Dan (who is now our band's manger) started the idea of the band back in 2009 shortly after we met. However it was just jam sessions and getting excited about big ideas of what could be back then. It was like this for a while before we actually turn into a full band, we got the rest of the guys in and did our first live show in Feb 2014.
These bands have set the bar in terms of stage presence. They’re all quite a bit older than us, but they play for way longer and keep the energy ridiculously high throughout their entire show which is inspirational. We come off stage after 50 mins/1 hour and we’re shattered haha! Frank Bello was awesome for dishing out advice, he’d pop his head into our dressing room, spur us on and make sure we’re all having a great time and enjoying ourselves which is the main objective!4. You've opened for Anthrax and Killswitch Engage in the past and now Iron Maiden. What are some lessons you've learned from those bands when it comes to touring, your stage presence, etc.?
We’re gonna be on tour until mid October, we then get home for 3 weeks and then head out on tour in Europe supporting Alter Bridge and Shinedown which is going to be awesome! We then have a one off headline show in London on Friday 13th December to round off what’s been a brilliant 2019.
The Raven Age is currently on The Legacy Of The Beast tour with Iron Maiden. If you missed the song today, take a listen to it below:
