Ravens began their journey as a song, not a band. A fun collaboration that quickly blossomed into a full blown Hard-Pop-Grunge melting pot of back stories and musical experience. That debut single and video, the self-titled “Ravens” had thousands of views and hits within days. Ravens was born and came into the world with a natural buzz within the Chicago music scene. The band started in late 2017 when guitarist Dee J Nelson ran into lead vocalist Eric Liljehorn at a King’s-X show in Chicago. A few quick words; a potential collaboration and mutual love for all things musical. The two began working on a few of Dee J’s songs together and both could tell something right away was simply “clicking”. Shortly after the release of “Ravens” it was clear a full band was in order. Ravens was joined by two Chicago area veterans, drummer Jimmy B and bassist Mike Streicher. With a mixed bag rhythm section of thrashy, grunge drumming and hard rock bass added into the fray, Ravens was on their way to creating their own flavor and sound. Ravens haunted\fun house style is on full display in their 2019 full length release “Monster TV”. With its raw and driving rhythms and sing-along style hooks, Monster TV feeds a sound that sits comfortably somewhere between Kings X and White Zombie. Add in a sprinkle of industrial sound design and this black bird soars. The response has been nothing short of overwhelming... One might say the response has been Raven-ous. Ravens looks to expand on their already growing audience outside the Windy City and into the Midwest and beyond.
