Raised By Eagles are about to kick-off 2017 with the launch of their brand new single, Shape & Line’ from their forthcoming third album, to be released by ABC Music.

Recorded and produced by Shane O’Mara at Yikesville, ‘Shape & Line’ reflects an excitingly bigger, more electrified sound and gives the band’s many admirers a long-awaited taste of something new after the success of their previous albums, 2015’s Diamonds In The Bloodstream and their 2013 self-titled debut.

The single is out digitally on Friday, March 24 via all good outlets.  Check out ‘Shape & Line’ HERE.

Melbourne’s Raised By Eagles comprises Luke Sinclair (guitar/harmonica/vocals), Nick O’Mara (guitar/lap steel/mandolin/vocals), Luke Richardson (bass/backing vocals) and Johnny Gibson (drums, percussion, backing vocals).

Raised By Eagles

The band’s self-titled debut, released in 2013 quickly alerted people in the know to sit up and take notice, while their second release, 2015’s Diamond In The Bloodstream confirmed beyond doubt the fact that RBE were indeed a very special band.  Beautifully crafted and evocative lyrics, a strong sense of identity in the story-telling, combined with first-class players and a deft and knowing touch had critics unanimously singing the band’s praises.

Taking out ‘Best Country Album’ and ‘Best Emerging Artist’ at the Age Music Victoria Awards (2015) RBE went on to be the showcase artist at the Americana Music Festival in Nashville the same year.  2016 saw them playing almost every available festival including Queenscliff, Port Fairy, Dashville and many more.  2017 promises to further broaden Raised By Eagles’ horizons.

“Raised By Eagles’ songs are the kind you fall in love with at the first listen and then endlessly trawl bars and venues across Melbourne to be near again. This is no crush. This is a great, enduring romance” LIZ STRINGER Australian Singer/Songwriter
