Sunderland’s alternative rock trio Rayne announce the release of a free stream of their forthcoming single, Human Imitation. Set for digital release on May 10, the North-East England based outfit are intent on proving why their anthemic song writing skills have earned them frequent comparisons to mainstream artists such as 30 Seconds To Mars, U2, Coldplay and Muse.
With a creative partnership that first began over 15 years ago, Ben Potts (vocals/bass), Adam Dagg (guitar/keys) and Steven Naisbet (drums/samples) have experienced Rayne’s reputation moving from strength to strength, following their rise to become national finalists of UK’s Live & Unsigned event in 2010. Their ambitious debut album The New Enlightenment showcased the band’s abilities to produce sonically epic sounding tracks with emotively melodic vocals. The result of its diverse cross-genre appeal to indie, pop and alternative music lovers, attracted an army of loyal fans nationwide and later secured their signing with UK independent label – Ambicon Records. Introducing Rayne to a much wider audience in 2013, both free download singles Fallen and Raise The Alarm garnered strong support from radio taste makers, new music podcasts and alternative music press – acknowledging the bands potential to follow in the footsteps of fellow British epic-rock revivalists such as The Chevin and These Reigning Days.
Almost twp years in the making, Rayne plan to unleash their eagerly anticipated second album, Complex By Design in late 2014. Fans can expect a series of new single releases to be available over the forthcoming months, along with news of UK tour dates.
