Blues rock babies RavenEye got 'Out Of The Rain' at Drownload and straight into the studio to create new super album, 'Nova'. If you're a fan of last EP Breakout, you may find this one a little different.

Giraffe Tongue Orchestra boasts a hugely impressive array of talent, comprising of Alice in Chains vocalist William DuVall, guitarists Ben Weinman of the Dillinger Escape Plan and Brent Hinds of Mastodon, Dethklok bassist Pete Griffin and former The Mars Volta drummer Thomas Pridgen. The group's debut record, Broken Lines, can be best be described as a mix of mathcore, prog rock and funk (the last of which is certainly out of left field, given the previous music made by the group’s members).
What do you get if you put members of Alice In Chains, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Mastodon, Dethklok and The Mars Volta in a room together?
Layne Staley is gone and this album is not Dirt. For some people that's enough to disregard this new album. If you can come to terms with this, have a listen to 'Black Gives Way to Blue', the fantastic new album from Alice In Chains.
Yes it is true, you heard it right! The almighty Alice In Chains ARE returning to the UK for a full November tour in support of their amazing stunning new album ‘Black Gives Way To Blue’.
