TAKEN FROM THE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED ALBUM BLOOD OMEN
Ahead of kicking off their headline tour of the UK & Europe next month, The Raven Age have revealed a video for their new single ‘Nostradamus’, taken from their critically acclaimed album Blood Omen out now via Music For Nations/Sony Music.
‘Nostradamus’ is an epic metal tale of a great prophet predicting the rise of The Raven King, the band’s imposing motif who looms large on the album artwork of Blood Omen, a record described as “epic, hook-laden metal” by Metal Hammer and “tight as hell and impressively melodic” by Kerrang.
As demonstrated in the video for ‘Nostradamus’, recorded during their thrilling live shows to capacity arena crowds throughout Europe and the UK on their recent tour with Iron Maiden, the prophecy for The Raven Age spells global domination.
“We wanted to capture the live environment with this video for ‘Nostradamus’,” says guitarist George Harris. “It’s where we come into our own, this happens to be one of the most fun songs for us to play in the set. It went down great being a support band and at the European festivals this summer. Bring on the Blood Omen tour which kicks off in a few weeks, we’re anticipating our best headline tour to date!”
The Raven Age solidify their status live, they have performed over 400 shows internationally across 38 countries including major festival performances such as the main stage at Download Festival, Rock in Rio, Wacken, Hellfest and many more.
The band begin their Blood Omen headline tour on October 12th in Krakow and will play a further 13 dates throughout Europe before starting the UK leg at London’s Lafyette on November 5th, they will play six further dates across the country with full tour dates listed below.
