Raven Premiere “Go For The Gold” Music Video

Raven have premiered a new video for their new song “Go For The Gold.” This track is from the band’s new album “All Hell’s Breaking Loose,” which will be released on June 30.

John Gallagher commented:

“‘Go For The Gold’ is our first single as it really represents the new album mission statement… 100% full-on Raven lunacy!!!! If you’ve got an initial great riff, you just build from it. You try not to milk it to death. You want a good structure. You want a good verse with hooks, a good pre-chorus with hooks, a great chorus, and then you want little left turns here and there to spice it up. Otherwise it can sound boring. And if you have too many left turns then it turns into jazz fusion, so it’s a funny line you gotta dance on to have structure but also the chaos part as well.”

01. “Medieval”
