U.K. rock trio RAVENEYE will head back to the U.S. for more tour dates this summer. The band will hit the road on July 6 in Grand Rapids, Michigan and continue through July 27 in Houston, Texas. Three of the shows on their U.S. itinerary will be as special guests of CHEVELLE.
RAVENEYE previously toured the U.S. with SLASH FEATURING MYLES KENNEDY & THE CONSPIRATORS in 2015 and then again with THE DARKNESS in 2016.
RAVENEYE commented: "We've been working on making something epic for this U.S. tour. With the set we've been working on, we're putting our blood, sweat and tears into making this the best show we've put out there. So prepare for something epic! It's gonna be heavy."
RAVENEYE just wrapped up a European tour supporting KISS as well as dates with HELLYEAH. They were recently added to the Download festivals in the U.K., Spain and France, as well as Bulgaria's Plovdiv Festival and the Reading and Leeds Festivals, among others.

RAVENEYE's debut album, "Nova", was released last September via Frontiers Music Srl.
Warren Riker (Lauryn Hill, Michael Jackson, DOWN, Anders Osborne) engineered RAVENEYE's debut EP, "Breaking Out", and took over as producer to capture the band's true sonic identity on "Nova". Together, they worked at Water Music in Hoboken, New Jersey for 25 days and created an eleven-track album that pushed the band beyond its boundaries and into new ground. From the hard-hitting riffs of "Inside", "Madeline" and "Hero" to the raw sounds of "Wanna Feel You" and "Oh My Love" to the stark reality of life and death in "Eternity", "Nova" takes you on a journey of defiance, pain, hate, death and, yes, love.
When RAVENEYE formed three years ago, the then-25-year-old Oli Brown, singer and guitarist, had already released four solo albums and toured the world for ten years with legends such as Jeff Beck, Buddy Guy, Johnny Winter and Joe Satriani.
