The Raveonettes, Danish alt-rock duo Sune Rose Wagner and Sharin Foo, are releasing Raven in The Grave on April 5th. It's the band's fifth full-length album and the third on Vice Records.
Wagner revealed in the album's press release that "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. It's all very un-Rave."
"It has a mood of ethereal defiance," Foo adds. "It's dark but not bleak, like the single-minded determination caused by crisis that is not quite hope but just as powerful. It's the perfect winter soundtrack just in time for spring".
Fans can bide their time over the next few weeks with a free download of "Forget That You're Young" and making plans to see the band's spring tour in support of the album.
