Rayne Announce Free Stream Of Latest Single, Human Imitation

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.

Creating a sound much bigger than the sum of their parts, Ben Potts (vocals), Adam Dagg (guitar/keys) and Steven Naisbet (drums) have been steadily building Rayne’s reputation as a ‘must see’ live act on the UK gig circuit since rising to the finals of Live and Unsigned in 2010. Originally forming whilst still at school, these years of developing their craft has moulded the band into an exciting British act with an ever growing fan base both in the UK and overseas.

As one of North-East England’s best kept secrets for many years, Rayne’s music has since garnered strong support from both rock and indie press alike with various singles receiving radio airplay across the world. Intent on striving for new heights of recognition, Rayne are currently recording tracks for their new album release in early 2014.

The Sunderland trio are Ben Potts (bass/vocals), Adam Dagg (guitar/keys) and Steven Naisbet (drums/samples). Having formed whilst at school 16 years ago, Rayne have raised over £20,000 for charities, won four Battle of the Bands  (at a national level) and were also runners-up at the 02 Live & Unsigned final out of 10,000 bands. The band also won an Outstanding Contribution to Music award at Red Dreams Music Awards in 2010.  So, as you can see, this band could be set for big things.

Fallen is your typical alternative rock/indie song. It has a catchy chorus, explosive guitar riffs and a great atmospheric sound. Potts’ vocals are soft, emotional yet strong. Rayne have a solid sound that will stick with you. You can hear Fallen here. The single was released on March 3.

Rayne are currently writing and recording new material for their forthcoming album release planned for late 2013.
