THESE RAVEN SKIES have staged a quiet revolution. The band managed to create its own record label, after signing an international distribution deal with the Universal Music Group, releasing its own work as well as signing several like-minded artists to its roster.

As the band formerly known as DREAMS OF REASON sat down to write a follow up to its Radically Poetic album, it quickly became apparent that their new musical direction would require a name change. “The new music was beginning to take on a life of its own. After years of moderate success trying to satisfy everyone else, we decided to make a record that was true to our musical interests and as a result became much different than DREAMS OF REASON material” states frontman, Chris Perkins. The dramatic sonic shift managed to catch the attention of THE TEA PARTY’s Jeff Martin, who not only agreed to take on production duties but also became involved as a co-writer and unof?cial ?fth band member.

“You hear the stories about bands like THE BEATLES, where Sir George Martin took on the ?fth member role and that’s de?nitely an experience we’ve had with Jeff Martin. It’s been a pretty surreal experience and I think the results will speak for themselves. This record is a progression in the LED ZEPPELIN light and shade musical philosophy,” adds guitarist Alex Whitcombe. Light and shade became the primary in?uence of the new album, which casts aside the band’s previous heavy metal sonic assault in favor of more dynamic soundscapes that incorporate sitar, keyboard and tabla. Although THESE RAVEN SKIES have displayed a new found musical maturity, they haven’t entirely abandoned their penchant for hooky hard rock and metal.

THESE RAVEN SKIES self titled debut album was released on 7/29 via Blackstream Records. The ?rst single, “No Need To Worry” impacted rock radio on 7/22.

The band will be celebrating the release touring on the 2014 Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival with the likes of GODSMACK, SEETHER, BUCKCHERRY, SKILLET and more that kicks off August 15th in Detroit, Michigan. THESE RAVEN SKIES will be playing on the MAIN STAGE!
