Mass Sky Raid Release Single & Video, Announce Shows


Gold Coast progressive rock band Mass Sky Raid have released their new single ‘Closer’ with their very first music video. The single will be released this Friday 9th of June. Accompanying the release of the single, the band have announced they’ll be doing two launch shows in July – one in Brisbane at The Zoo and one in their hometown Gold Coast at the Shar Bar. Each shows will also include some of Australia’s best up and coming rock outfits. With ‘Closer’ being the second single from their forthcoming record, its predecessor being ‘sacrifice’, the high quality of the album, which was done at Loose Stones Studios alongside owner/producer/mix engineer Matt Bartlem, is quite clear.

The filmclip for the band is their first as, despite releasing a bunch of music over the past few years, they haven’t done a video clip until this one. Vocalist Adam Lomas says "Mass Sky Raid is something that is dear to our hearts and we put more than everything we've got into making the music we want to make - so to drop our debut clip which is for one of our favorite tracks to play and from our forthcoming release... this is pretty awesome and we hope everyone loves it too."

Guitarist Alex Kewley is excited for the record to get into the world, saying "We are seriously wanting this thing out now! The songs on this record are the best we have ever put together and we are going to roll these things out over the next few months and we are looking forward to smashing up the stages at The Zoo and Shark Bar to celebrate the release - then we are going to go again straight away with the record and hit the road properly down the East Coast later in the year!"

The band formed in 2011 and have since supported Dead Letter Circus, Twelve Foot Ninja and I Am Giant. They’ve been featured on Triple M, 4ZZZ and FBi, in addition to over 40 stations in the US, Asia, South America, and Europe, including BBC1 and BBC6 in London.
