Info for Raised In The Dark



Villainy return this July with their highly anticipated third album Raised In The Dark.

The follow up to 2015's Dead Sight sees the band once again working with long-term collaborator Tom Larkin (Shihad) as well as legendary LA stalwart Mark Needham (The Killers, Imagine Dragons, The 1975). The result is a shift into a new sonic and musical direction for the two-time NZ Music Award winners.

From the confrontational leer of the title track, to the proto-candy death-punk of ‘IFXS’, and the dystopian anthem ‘Dreams’, this record represents the extremes of the bands collective imagination. Energetic and innovative riff-work, outlandish guitar solos, a slamming rhythm section and crushing lyrical truths shows a band at the peak of their powers.

Vocalist Neill Fraser says of the album “We went all in on this record and over 12 months wrote dozens, if not hundreds of songs. Beneath all the loud guitars, smashing drums and screaming vocals there is a real honesty and vulnerability to this album which we're really proud of.”

Since arriving in 2011 with game-changing single ‘Alligator Skin’, Villainy have been redefining what's possible with rock in New Zealand. Both albums Mode. Set. Clear. and Dead Sight have debuted at #1 and won NZ Music Awards for Best Rock Album. Villainy have appeared at countless festivals as well as being hand-picked to open for AC/DC during their New Zealand stadium tour.

Villainy
are one of the most exciting rock bands to emerge from New Zealand in recent times. Their debut album Mode. Set. Clear released in October 2012. The record hit #1 on the New Zealand Chart and was awarded the iconic prize for 2013 VNZMA Best Rock Album. It also featured four chart topping singles in Alligator Skin, Gather Yourselves, Another Time and Ammunition garnering the band extensive on air play time.

This rock album displayed a sonic diversity rarely witnessed in New Zealand music. Neill comments “we write songs to be played live and loud, what better way to introduce the new songs and bring out our favourites from Mode. Set. Clear. It's been far too long and we're itching to get back out on the road." The Auckland based four-piece band consists of James Dylan (bass guitar), Neill Fraser (vocals and guitar), Dave Johnston (drums) and Thomas Watts (lead guitar).

Villainy have previously performed alongside huge international acts such as Incubus, Billy Talent and The Offspring, as well as performing at the 2014 Big Day Out and twice on the Homegrown Rock Stage.

This album contains no booklet.
