RULED BY RAPTORS
EXCITING NEW ALT ROCK UNIT REVEAL NEW VIDEO SINGLE & EP!
Bursting onto the scene at the end of 2018, RULED BY RAPTORS follow in the
footsteps of acts such as Biffy Clyro, Reuben and The Xcerts, boldly mashing
gritty, intricate, heavy-laden rock with soaring choruses, while keeping one
ear firmly placed on melody. The intriguing alt rock combo have just
revealed a new video for the single, Time – https://youtu.be/F0exsydqa6Q .
The track is taken from the band’s debut EP, Ouroboros, which arrives via
Pulse Music on Friday 7th June.
Rising from the ashes of defunct post-hardcore outfit 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.”
Upon listening to the quartet’s new EP, it’s evident that this new-found
freedom has reaped ample rewards. The record is a towering statement that
despatches ultra-magnetic hooks and engaging riffs, all coiled around
twisting dynamics and unabashed groove. RULED BY RAPTORS have crafted a
release which throws down a prominent marker to all. With live dates lined
up with lit hop favourite MC Lars, alongside Koo Koo Kangaroo and Megaran,
as well as further shows to support the EP, 2019 is shaping up to be a
landmark year for the band.
