DAN LUKE AND THE RAID TO RELEASE DEBUT ALBUM, OUT OF THE BLUE, OCTOBER 11th

Dan Luke and The Raid are set to release their debut album, Out of the Blue, on October 11th via New West Records.  The 10-song set was produced by Bradley Shultz of Cage the Elephant and engineered by Jeremy Ferguson at Battle Tapes Recording in Nashville, TN. From their appearance at Bonnaroo in 2018, Rolling Stone has already called the Bowling Green, KY-based outfit a “fully-formed-on-arrival band,” saying they “have a brand of garage-surf-meets-Floyd psychedelia that’s all its own.” Entertainment Weekly has also stated, “The group’s clangy music feels somehow both retro and futuristic,” comparing them to “The Beatles at their “Helter Skelter”-heaviest.”

Rachel Taylor, lead vocalist of indie pop act He Is We, has officially received a verdict of not guilty, exonerating her of the Sexual Assault allegation from 2017. The verdict followed a one-day jury trial held on June 4, 2019 in Jamestown, North Dakota.
