FEBRUARY 18, 2020 – British rockers The Raven Age are celebrating stateside success at radio with their latest single “The Face That Launched a Thousand Ships.” Stations like KFML, KDDX, KGRR, WKLC, KTRX and more have added the song to rotation. The song showcases the softer side of the English melodic metal band – highlighting the vocals of front man Matt James. Fans can stream “The Face That Launched a Thousand Ships” today at

“The Face that Launched a Thousand Ships” is featured on the band’s recent release through Explorer1 Music Group, Conspiracy. The second chapter of this band’s story takes on a fantasy world through 13 tracks that are as brilliantly catchy as they are deviously heavy, delicately balancing classic and modern metal influences with an alt-rock twist. 

From epic opener “Bloom Of The Poison Seed” right through to grand finale “Grave Of The Fireflies,” the latest opus traps lightning in a bottle and laces cinematic flavors within concrete heaviness in a way very few have done before – dragging the listener deeper and deeper inside their dark dystopian reality. Truth be told, this is a band that are every bit as explosive as a blockbuster movie. 

This release saw The Raven Age making their debut on the Billboard Top 40 Active Rock Chart with their first single released in the US “Fleur De Lis.”

Founded by guitarists Dan Wright and George Harris in 2009, The Raven Age has toured with the diverse likes of Alter Bridge, Iron Maiden, Tremonti, Mastodon, Killswitch Engage, Anthrax and Delain. After the announcement of new vocalist Matt James last year and a steady stream of new music and non-stop touring, it’s an exciting time for the group who were awarded Best New Band 2017 by Planet Rock and championed as “the UK’s next brightest metal hope” by Metal Hammer. 

With a strong touring schedule, a new global partnership with Explorer1, the Los Angeles, California based full service music company, and new music on the horizon, the next 12 months are set to be a monumental year for The Raven Age. Stay tuned to for more information coming soon.
