Raveonettes Ready New Album, Prepare for Tour

Danish-born New York-based bubblegum-noise pop masters The Raveonettes are set to release their fifth studio album, ‘Raven in the Grave.’

‘Raven in the Grave,’ which is being put out by Vice Records, will be released on April 5 in the US, and April 4 everywhere else. Vocalist/guitarist/songwriter Sune Rose Wagner said of the record, “This is the first Raveonettes album we’ve done which doesn’t feature the signature Raveonettes surf drumbeat. None of the tunes have any real sunshine to them.”

The Raveonettes will be touring behind the album starting at the end of March and finishing up with two nights in Brooklyn, April 20 and 21. New Zealand-born nu-gaze artist Tamaryn will support them on all dates. The tracklisting for the album and a full list of tour dates are below.
