Send For A Ravens


From the Isle Of Lewis in Scotland, here’s something brilliant

The Broken Ravens are a 5 piece hard rock band based in Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis, Scotland. Formed in 2011 by 4 friends from local bands on the pub/club circuit for a change to the norm playing covers every weekend and creating a darker, fuzzier, energetic yet accessible kind of sound.

An independently released single in 2013, with two video’s in support helped bring TBR out of Stornoway and across the water to tour the U.K. Received well by critics and peers, the “foot stomping, head banging, fire ball of fuzz” rolled across Scotland amassing a solid fanbase, rave reviews, praise from peers within the industry and international radio play.

2015 has seen a line up change with founding member, vocalist and guitarist Bugsy MacLean leaving to concentrate on his solo career. Local boy Derek Healey, an accomplished guitarist and ex band mate of Kevin Clarks (Our Lunar Activities) and charismatic frontman Toby Michaels were recruited into the fold. The new line up wasted no time in recording new tracks, embarking on a headline UK tour, opening the mainstage at Brew At The Bog, supporting Warrior Soul, and packing tents at festivals Belladrum, Stramash, Jocktoberfest, Orkney Live Wire and headlining a New Year show at local venue “An Lanntair”.

Keeping with the DIY ethic, TBR have recorded 12 tracks at Wee Studio, Stornoway, co produced by Keith Morrison and financed by selling tee shirts on tour as well as locally. TBR undertook a trip to Los Angeles in November 2015 to hand deliver deliver mixes by invitation to peers, venues and various industry professionals.

 “Black Knuckle Ride” will be released trough EMU Bands on March 18th 2016, with live favourite “Feed The Madness” as the B side. A new trademark TBR video for “BKR” will be released at the same time, filmed/directed by Kenny Stewart at Moja TV. An EP is set to be released later in 2016.
