Stream “Breaking Out” (Single)

“Breaking Out is a filthy monster of a song, and we’d claim to have discovered them were it not for the fact that the track has had nearly 100,000 Soundcloud plays since it was uploaded last month” 
- Classic Rock Magazine -


After a hugely successful Europe run with SLASH, RAVENEYE are thrilled to announce the legendary rocker has extended his invitation for the UK band to rejoin him on his US tour, starting October 7th in Minneapolis before hitting Canada for several dates, and then onto U.S. cities including Seattle, Denver and Los Angeles.

Before the Slash dates begin, RAVENEYE will make their US debut at the Louder Than Life Festival in Louisville on October 3rd. At the conclusion of the SLASH dates, the UK trio will hit the Aftershock Festival in Sacramento on October 24th.

RAVENEYE are celebrating the release of their new single, “Breaking Out” while their self-titled debut EP has been riding high in the Amazon best sellers list. The UK rock trio has had a busy summer doing what they do best, touring relentlessly. They hit the road throughout June and July with the Blues Pills and as special guests of Slash – on an amazing run of dates across Europe. In addition, they have topped the rock chart for 3 weeks running at influential radio station RockFile Radio.

Even though he’s still only 25 year sold, Oli Brown, singer and multi award-winning guitarist, has already released four solo albums and toured the world for 10 years with legends such as Jeff Beck, Buddy Guy, Johnny Winter and Joe Satriani.  Mojo Magazine hailed Oli as; ‘the hottest young pistol in British blues’ – Classic Rock Magazine described him as “one of the best and brightest guitar heroes performing in the world today”. He recorded the 5 tracks on “Breaking Out” late last year, before teaming up with drummer Kev Hickman and bassist Aaron Spiers and to take the songs out live – et voilà – RavenEye was born.

Filled with deep, bluesy grooves which invoke giants such as Zeppelin and Soundgarden the band (who only formed a year ago) are winning fans around the world with their huge sound and killer live shows.

Launch Eddie Spaghetti Cancer Fight Fund

Eddie Vedder Joins Band Onstage at Last Show … for Now


Eddie Spaghetti, front man for Seattle’s ass-kicking saviors of rock and roll, the Supersuckers, has been diagnosed with Stage 3 oropharynx cancer.

In order for Eddie to undergo immediate surgery and radiation treatment, the band has cancelled its upcoming European tour and also postponed work on the follow-up to last year’s Get the Hell.

Within hours of learning this news, friends of the Supersuckers responded in the ass-kickin’, never-say-die manner you’d expect from fans of “the Greatest Rock and Roll Band in the World,” by raising more than $20,000 in the first 24 hours of the campaign to Support Eddie Spaghetti’s Cancer Fight.

“I have been blown away by the incredible generosity of friends and strangers,” says Eddie. “It shows you that even the darkest times can offer some light, some hope. Thanks everyone.”

The Supersuckers played its last show (for now) on Thursday, June 18 to a packed house at Seattle’s Tractor Tavern. Among the evening’s highlights was a performance of the Ramones’ “I Believe in Miracles,” featuring surprise guests Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam and Blind Marky Felchtone from Zeke.

“Now apparently the battle begins,” adds Eddie. “Friday I went in for my pre-op physical (I’m pretty sure I got a D+) and then surgery is slated for this week … It’s weird because I feel fine right now, but I know that I’m not fine and need to go through all this crap to get better.”

Donate to Support Eddie Spaghetti’s Cancer Fight.

“TANG Rocks!” – Dee Snider

NYC – One of the hottest releases of 2015 is undoubtedly the new album by dual female fronted alternative metal power trio TANG featuring a guest appearance by legendary Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider! Titled “Blood & Sand”, TANG’s new CD features a duet with Dee Snider on the track “Reign of Blood”!

Says guitarist Denny Colt, “Bonnie knew Dee from back in the day when they both did the club circuit…I hooked up with Dee when I was in Van Helsing’s Curse with we have quite the connection. He’s a really nice guy & did such a great job on the duet with Bonnie on ‘Reign of Blood.’”

Hailing from New York, TANG features Bonnie Parker on Vox & Bass and Denny Colt on Vox, Lead Guitar & Keyboards, and have been trading phrases back and forth in their own ripping style since 1999. Mark Edwards, formerly of Criss Angel & Burning Star, now brings skull-splitting drum beats and a monster attitude. TANG has toured Europe, Canada and the US opening shows for such artists as Crucified Barbara, Girlschool, W.A.S.P., Dokken, Hammerfall, Helloween, Dee Snider, Symphony X and many, many other cool bands.

Denny played guitar, toured & recorded in Dee Snider’s “Van Helsing’s Curse”, the gothic rock orchestra. Bonnie & Denny have currently played, toured & recorded, with Corky Laing from Mountain in his new band “Corky Laing & The Memory Thieves”. They are also working with Corky in Finland, writing, recording & performing on a rock opera called “Playing God” which was presented in Helsinki in 2014. The opera was presented in the US in April 2015 at Yale University & Hunter College.

I love the total rock vibe of the new TANG CD! It’s real, it’s vital – it’s brilliant.” – Corky Laing

TANG is featured in the new Fred Carpenter film, “Charlie Mantle”, performing their song “Crashing”. The film debuted summer of 2014 and stars Armand Assante, Sean Young and Robert Funaro. Says Bonnie, “TANG was in the film performing the song in a Russian mob club as the lead character, Robert Funaro (of The Soprano’s), is at the end of his dirty cop career & everything is ‘crashing’ down around him. Great concept by director Fred Carpenter!”

Watch TANG’s new video:

Now much to the excitement of their fans worldwide, on September 1, 2015, TANG is releasing their new CD “Blood & Sand”!

Says Denny, “TANG is currently promoting the release of ‘Blood & Sand’ doing shows in the tri-state area. We are talking with promoters in Europe, Scandinavia & the US about setting up a tour. Our first CD, ‘Mental Pollution’ was on a Swedish label, Raw Power UK and we toured Scandinavia to support it. The tours were very successful culminating with TANG performing at the Sweden Rock Fest.”
