The Raven Age will play a string of headline shows around the UK in October as part of a European tour.

The hotly tipped Londoners played a rousing set at Download Festival in June and were a big feature of last year's Bloodstock Festival and you should check out the video for their latest single, 'The Dying Embers Of Life', taken from their debut album 'Darkness Will Rise', as well as previous single, 'Salem's Fate'.





Support bands will be announced in due course and tickets go on sale this Friday at 10.00am and can be picked up at theravenage.com/tour.

The full UK & Irish dates are as follows:

Monday 23rd October: Glasgow, The Garage Attic
Tuesday 24th October: Manchester, Star & Garter
Wednesday 25th October: Birmingham, O2 Institute 3
Thursday 26th October: London, Boston Music Rooms
Saturady 28th October: Bristol, Louisiana
Monday 30th October: Dublin, Academy 2
Tuesday 31st October: Belfast, Limelight 2

The band have also confirmed that Tony Maue will be their new guitarist, taking over from Dan Wright who is, in true Angela Gossow style, taking over as full time manager.

Dan told us:

"I am happy to confirm that Tony Maue is officially taking over my performing role as guitarist in The Raven Age. With the band doing so well and moving from strength to strength, I have decided to make managing The Raven Age my full-time role. This will allow me to focus on delivering the most exciting experiences for our fans and help the band to explore new opportunities.

"When we created The Raven Age, we never imagined that we'd achieve half of what we have so far. Tony's addition to the line-up is now allowing me to focus my time on growing the band that I love. The band is in the best possible position and we are all excited for what the future holds."

MONSTERS OF ROCK IN FULL FLIGHT SURE TO BECOME FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

monsters of rock

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
