ExtermiNation:

In short, the best Raven album yet.  We think we've written it, and now we need your help to record it!

Our good friends at SPV Records fully support Raven and have agreed to release the new album "ExtermiNation" in early 2015, but with the current state of the record industry, are only able to partially fund the album.  

We're not willing to cut any corners or sell you, the fans, short, so we are asking for your help to cover the expense of extra pre-production, rehearsal, travel, and studio time.  Most importantly, we're not just using any studio or engineer, we're reuniting the team responsible for our last album "Walk Through Fire"!  With your help we'll return to Assembly Line Studios with producer Kevin '131' Gutierrez.  

Our promise to you is an uncompromising album that will tear your head off!  So please check out all the rewards we've dreamed up for you below, including an entire covers album just for you lot, and many other items only available here!  

Thanks for your support, and we'll see you on the road!

Cheers,

John
