Ravenscroft is Melodic, Hard Hitting Rock that comes from the Soul! Their sound is derived from the very Best of Old School meets New School Hard Rock. Black Sabbath meets Tool, Drowning Pool meets Shinedown, Creed meets Godsmack! Ravenscroft is very Familiar, yet very New, Original and Cutting Edge!
What are some new projects that you guys are working on to put out there for us coming up? What influenced you to do this video?
We have A good idea and were ready to make it.
Music brings out a lot of inspirational thoughts, what have you come up with idea wise for the video? Music obviously relates to a lot of Life events, personal non-personal. What is it that really sticks out to you guys that you feel like this would make an awesome video and this is what people can relate to?
the rock band Kiss! When I was 12 years old we would just stuff like this and we would have fake concerts in the living room with all the makeup on!!. that rock band came out for me: was what is an image for me that started a lot of it to play music.
My older brother took me to a Van Halen concert when I was 12. That was the very first show I ever went to. And I’ll never forget it that actually hit me from head to toe. And that was the moment for sure that I actually wanted to play that was the moment for me to play guitar and bass and being a rock band I remember going home the next day telling my dad that I wanted to play place and play wanted to play guitar and play rock and roll and I did from that point on I actually had a moment that had me start.
I was a Black Sabbath fan, as far as what makes me want to keep doing this has a lot to do with that same show with all the people around me that love music and that were really into it and get opportunities backstage and meet them. They really gave me the influence to start playing. There’s something magical when you get up on stage and play in front of people, there’s something about it that’s a real connection. To connect with 20,000 people or whatever that was something that I wanted to do when I got the first opportunity to play and I knew it was something I wanted to do the rest of my life until I got tired of it which I didn’t think would really happen.
—-we all share a lot of the same interests and fun.
Ahh,yes!..lol…..A lot of that kept secret!!..lol. We’ll Keep you suspense like trump…lol!
Brett : Since I’ve been in the band a few years there has been a couple of standout shows and one was at the whiskey on the Sunset Strip, another one is The Viper Room and more intimate clubs. They were so packed and full of people , really those two shows stood out for us, the crowd response was amazing and was so radical . We got the opportunity to play at the Tuscan Fair… that was a really high energy and we enjoyed all that energy. The crowd response was amazing . It was an awesome opportunity and the crowd singing along and to have that connection with the fans.
Well we’ve always had a lot of fun with all the videos that we have shot so far but I would say the most difficult one would be our last video. She had to reshoot the video twice and we are really looking forward to our next video for the end of November.
It all sounds exciting and we will have the fans looking for that. Just keep doing what you doing guys ,you guys are doing awesome in music and are so inspirational. Just keep blocking it out and keep touring and we will support you and I’m glad that you talked with us here at UNCIVIL REVOLT about everything. We are excited, myself included, I’m a big fan of your music and we wish you all the best of luck!!!
