The Danish duo The Raveonettes are geared up and ready for another go-round. ‘Raven In The Grave’ will be the Copenhagen group’s fifth full-length release and is scheduled to arrive on April 5th on Vice Records. Continuing their trend of putting out a new record every two years, The Raveonettes have worked at a pretty steady clip with now 5 full records released since 2003.
Since Day 1 I’ve been enamored by this group’s seamless marriage of 60s Girl Group/Phil Spector rhythms and melodies with the fuzzy guitars of The Jesus & Mary Chain, and I’m anxious for more.

In conjunction with announcing the new album, The Raveonettes went right ahead with revealing their N. American tour while they were at it. They come to town playing Lincoln Hall the day after the album’s release on April 6th. The impeccable sound and sightlines of Lincoln Hall will make for an utterly perfect setting so do NOT sleep on these tickets, because I promise you they won’t last long. They’ll set you back only $18, and you can get them here.
The opening act Tamaryn is no slouch, either.
It’ll be a great night, and here’s two of my favorite tracks by The Raveonettes that I hope appear on the set list:
