UK rock trio RavenEye have been invited to tour Europe as special guests of Kiss, one of rock's biggest and most influential bands. They have also been added as special guests on the Hellyeah UK tour in April.

As well as this, RavenEye are also confirmed for Download festivals in Spain and France, as well as Bulgaria's Plovdiv Festival, with more to follow soon.

Since releasing their wildly successful EP, 'Breaking Out', and debut album 'NOVA', RavenEye have toured globally, supporting Slash, Deep Purple, The Darkness and Halestorm amongst others. They've headlined their own tours through Europe and America as well as performing at major international rock festivals such as Download Festival (UK), Hellfest Open Air Festival (France), Azkena Rock Festival ARF (Spain), Rock For People (Czech Republic), Louder Than Life (USA), Aftershock Festival (USA), Maximus Festival (Brazil and Argentina) and most recently the Shiprocked Cruise 2017.

"Keep an eye on RavenEye. They are organic, raw and I hear a real 70s influence with these guys. When a band like this nails it, you never forget it. Wait for that riff in the middle of the song."
– Nikki Sixx

When RavenEye formed two years ago, the then 25-year-old Oli Brown, singer and multi-award winning guitarist, had already released four solo albums and toured the world for ten years with legends such as Jeff Beck, Buddy Guy, Johnny Winter and Joe Satriani and been hailed by Mojo as "the hottest young pistol in British blues".

monsters of rock

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
