Bursting onto the scene at the end of 2018, RULED BY RAPTORS follow in the
footsteps of acts such as Reuben, Biffy Clyro, and The Xcerts, boldly
mashing gritty, elaborate, heavy-laden rock with soaring choruses, while
keeping an ear firmly lodged on melody. The absorbing alt rock four piece
have just revealed a new video for the single, Braggart – . The track is taken from the band’s debut EP,
Ouroboros, which lands via Pulse Music on Friday 7th June.

Ascending from the ashes of defunct post-hardcore crew Digits, RULED BY
RAPTORS push the boundaries of each member’s previous associations. Vocalist
Chris Bradley explains: “We probably should have drawn a line with Digits
when the band split in 2015, however Will & Nick had already joined, and
work had already begun on a third EP.” This new EP would go on to form the
bones of RULED BY RAPTORS’ forthcoming debut EP, Ouroboros. The move has
already proven to be a popular one for the band, finding themselves less
restricted creatively by what came before. Chris continues: “We called the
EP ‘Ouroboros’, as we’ve come full circle writing it. The EP says goodbye to
the old band and hints at things to come, it sets the framework for our
sound, displaying the variation within our style, whilst remaining
accessible and catchy at the same time.”

When listening to the quartet’s new EP, it’s evident that this new-found
freedom has gained plentiful rewards. The record is a powerful statement
that despatches ultra-magnetic hooks and engaging riffs, all coiled around
twisting dynamics and unabashed groove. RULED BY RAPTORS have created a
release which throws down a prominent marker to all. With live dates lined
up to support the EP, 2019 is shaping up to be a stellar year for the band.
