Together since 2007, the quintet have toured far and wide, from Dublin in Ireland to Dublin in California, from Nashville Tennessee to Saltburn-by-the-Sea. Doing so they’ve kept a loyal fanbase and remained proudly independent. Recorded over the last six years in several locations again with longtime producer Andy Macpherson (Teenage Fanclub, The Who), Chop House is an album in the truest sense, an evolutionary document which shows the band maturing since 2009’s début Sixteen Holes in Sixteen Souls. Chop House is available through the band’s website, www.rookandtheravens.com or from the merch stand at their shows.
“…impress with a versatility reminiscent of The Byrds and Traffic” – The Independent
“Articulate, edgy, blistering and self-assured” – BBC
“…their three-part harmonies are on par with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. Newer songs rival Bends-era Radiohead and rock harder than early Queen. What other band can do all that and still sound at least as contemporary as Alt-J and Fleet Foxes?” – Colorado Springs Independent
“Young, bold and unfathomably talented” – High Voltage
