"Hero", the new video from the U.K. rockers RAVENEYE, can be seen below. The song is taken from the band's debut album, "Nova", which will be released on September 23 via Frontiers Music Srl.
Speaking about the song, singer/guitarist Oli Brown says: "'Hero', ironically, is inspired by the idea of complacency and how it can lull one into feeling bigger than who one really is and for all the wrong reasons.
"RAVENEYE is driven by the idea of pushing harder every day rather than taking a backseat to other people's efforts. Believing you're the hero while others are left to pick up the pieces and fix the 'wreckage left behind.'"
Since forming in 2014, RAVENEYE has toured globally, supporting bands such as THE DARKNESS, SLASH, DEEP PURPLE, HALESTORM and BLUES PILLS. The band has headlined tours through Europe and America and has performed at major international rock festivals such as Download (U.K.), Hellfest (France), Azkena Rock (Spain), and will also perform at the Maximus festival in Brazil and Argentina this September. Their incendiary live shows have captivated crowds and put them on the map as a "must-see" live band.
Warren Riker (Lauryn Hill, Michael Jackson, DOWN, Anders Osborne) engineered RAVENEYE's debut EP, "Breaking Out", and took over as producer to capture the band's true sonic identity on "Nova". Together, they worked at Water Music in Hoboken, New Jersey for 25 days and created an eleven-track album that pushed the band beyond its boundaries and into new ground. From the hard-hitting riffs of "Inside", "Madeline" and "Hero" to the raw sounds of "Wanna Feel You" and "Oh My Love" to the stark reality of life and death in "Eternity", "Nova" takes you on a journey of defiance, pain, hate, death and, yes, love.
With songs filled with deep, bluesy grooves and infectious hooks that invoke giants such as LED ZEPPELIN and SOUNDGARDEN , RAVENEYE continues to win fans over around the world with its huge sound and killer live shows. The extensive touring in 2015 laid the ground work for a hungry fan base and, this past April, one year after the release of "Breaking Out", the band debuted on Billboard's Heatseekers chart.
When RAVENEYE formed two years ago, the then-25-year-old Oli Brown, singer and guitarist, had already released four solo albums and toured the world for ten years with legends such as Jeff Beck, Buddy Guy, Johnny Winter and Joe Satriani.
