MAX RAPTOR release 2nd single ‘Ghosts’ through Naim Edge Records on September 27th/September headline tour
MAX RAPTOR are now set to release their fiery new single ‘Ghosts’ on September 27th through Naim Edge Records (Phantom Limb, William Fitzsimmons, AM), a follow up to the XFM and Kerrang Radio supported debut single release, ‘The Great and the Good’. ‘Ghosts’ is a modern and anthemic visceral assault to the senses. A persuasive and futuristic take on hardcore, blending in melody and rage, scattergun rhythms, mile high riffs and a pure sense of punk rock attitude. The single, produced by Sam Bell (Bloc Party, Weezer, REM), points to a promise of much more to come from this exciting, young UK 4 piece who have now been picked up by Satellite Management (home to Tool). Look out for a further, full-length release in 2011.
Filled with energy and mayhem, it’s in the live arena where MAX RAPTOR come alive, and the band can also now announce a September headline tour. The tour starts September 25th and ends October 9th. Full details are listed below.
Having cut their carnivorous teeth landing support slots with The Zutons, Cage the Elephant, The Stanglers and Billy Talent, the MAX RAPTOR boys recently embarked on a UK headline tour through July. This followed packed out appearances at Download 2010, Take it the Bridge (in Ireland, main support to The Futureheads) and Y Not festivals (in Derby, main support to The Subways).
‘Ghosts’ is available to download from 27th September 2010 from iTunes, 7digital, Amazon and in full CD quality FLAC from www.NaimEdge.com
