Raised By Eagles released their debut self-titled LP in July 2013 to a packed house at the Bella Union (Trades Hall) in Melbourne. Their entrance onto Melbourne’s musical landscape immediately garnered the attention of Alt.Country aficionados across the country and scored the band a nomination at The Age Music Victoria Awards that year for ‘Best Country Album’.
Since that time, continually raw and captivating performances have cemented their reputation as one of Melbourne’s most sought after independent acts. They delivered a blinding run of shows throughout 2014 that included appearing along-side international luminaries of the genre, Justin Townes Earle, Ryan Bingham and Lindi Ortega at the inaugural ‘Out On The Weekend’ Festival, (brought to us by Love Police Touring and Triple R 102.7FM) as well as performances at Apollo Bay, Kyneton, Jamgrass and Riverboats Music Festivals.
Raised By Eagles is certainly a band that hit the ground running, and shows no sign of slowing down. They return now with their highly anticipated follow-up album entitled ‘Diamonds In The Bloodstream’, released 20 April 2015 through Vitamin Records. A collection of interwoven tales covering the undulating territories of regret, hope, home and distance. Songs that remain unaffected by the smoke and mirrors of music in the post-modern era, and encapsulate the art of storytelling at it’s heartfelt finest.
