RAVEN Announces Wiped Out 40th Album Anniversary North American Tour


RAVEN is that rare thing in music, true originals. Cut these guys with a razor and they will bleed true heavy metal - a more intense live band does not exist on this planet!

The band released three of the most influential metal albums of the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal era, inspiring every band of that time and beyond. Without RAVEN you just would not have thrash/speed metal… after all, the band did give Metallica and Anthrax their first tours.

This year, RAVEN is set to hit the road once more where they will be celebrating the 40th anniversary of their iconic record Wiped Out and treating their fans by playing the album in full during each show.

Founding member John Gallagher comments, “really looking forward to playing one of my personal favorite RAVEN albums, Wiped Out, in its entirety on this upcoming North American tour. There are a few songs on the album we never got to ever play live so that’s gonna be a blast!”

Joining RAVEN on the tour will be Riot Act, who will perform a Riot repertoire from their classic era (1977-1982). In a cynical musical landscape, where bands are not “gangs” but faceless corporations, RAVEN is a band that is real and proud of it! The Wiped Out 40th Anniversary Tour will kick off on September 22nd in Jacksonville, Florida with more dates are to be announced soon. Tickets are on sale now at: ravenlunatics.com.
