Hi, we are Rayne. We are an emerging Alternative Rock band from Sunderland in the North East of England. People often compare is to the likes of U2, The Killers, Angel & Airwaves & Coldplay because of our big anthemic rock sound. It all began for us 16 years ago whilst we were still at school. We continued to practice and to do small gigs around our local area, slowly building a name for ourselves. We started to enter some battle of the bands and were pleasantly surprised to win some. This got us a lot of exposure and more people started to come to our gigs. We came 4th out of 10,000 at Live & Unsigned, I think we could of won it if we went with a different song! We would say that though wouldn’t we? LOL. Throughout the years we have helped a lot of charities along the way also, raising nearly £20,000 in total. We released our debut album ‘The New Enlightenment’ in December 2011 which has received lots of unreal reviews and has brought our music to a wider audience. In late 2012 we signed with an independent label called Ambicon Records and are really enjoying our time with them. We have been busy in 2013 promoting our free download single ‘Fallen’ which has received some great & encouraging reviews. Rayne are actively gigging around the UK this year and we’ve been doing live radio sessions. All good fun. We are currently writing our next album and fingers crossed will be ready for this summer! If we had the money it could be done next week LOL Our next album will be much fuller, it will sound huge! Now we know exactly what to do with the sound, and have a lot more ideas, we hope you’ll all love it. If you like our current stuff then I’m sure you will.
Thanks for reading & we hope you’ll take a listen to our music.
