NWOBHM Legends Raven Announce 2017 Tour Dates

If you love live concerts and crave a dose of the pure unadultered Heavy Metal, then there is perhaps no place better to start than with the legendary Raven. The band has just announced a string of dates and I’ve thrown in all together for your awareness – Read on.

The Press Release:
NWoBHM legends RAVEN announce the first live dates for 2017. The band is excited to go back on the road again:

“Hi there…after a longer than expected break RAVEN are ready & raring to get out on the road again…a quick warm up in the USA will be following by a Euro tour with old friends Hirax opening & we shall also be hitting the European festival
circuit hard in 2017 – and squeeze in a USA tour – and working on South America & some more exotic locales!!! LETS ALL KICK SOME ASS!!!” (John, Mark & Joe)

RAVEN are 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!

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve seen Raven a number of times over the years and can honestly say that they deliver for sure and pull out all the stops for their diehard fans. Though there are not a lot of US dates listed as of yet outside of the NJ appearance near us, I am hoping for more so this nation can stand united for their cause. What do you readers think about this tour announcement? Have you ever seen Raven in action? Let me know what you think down in the comments section below.
