The Raveonettes follow-up B-Sides & Rarities LP with brand new EP

The Raveonettes

The Raveonettes are building on their busy 2011 and continuing full steam ahead into 2012. The duo are putting the wraps on a brand new 4 song EP.

According to Sune Rose Wagner, he and Sharin Foo have just completed their last day in the Cophenhagen studio, resulting in 4 new tracks: Bad Ghosts, Too Close To Heartbreak, Into The Night, Night Comes Out Now with a possible additional cover of The Mamas and The Papas’ classic, California Dreamin’.

This would be surprising news from almost any other band, coming just one month after the release of their first compilation album, The Raveonettes – Rarities & B-Sides. The record features 27 tracks of b-sides and rare material spanning the records Whip It On, Chain Gang of Love, Pretty in Black and Lust Lust Lust. It also marks their first release to contain the Christmas Song, their biggest selling track to date, although never intended for commercial release. They finally released a video in December 2011, shot in Sune’s NYC Apartment.

In April 2011, the band released Raven In The Grave, their 5th studio album featuring the singles Recharge and Revolt, Apparitions and Let Me On Out. They supported the record with a full scale Spring tour of North America with support from Tamaryn and a tour of Denmark through December.

Stay tuned, who knows what will come next and how soon it will be!

Check out a stream of the entire B-Sides & Rarities album as well as the videos for The Christmas Song and Raven In The Grave track Let Me On Out.

The Raveonettes – Rarities & B-Sides
“The Christmas Song – Written and recorded during the Whip It On sessions in 2001 in Copenhagen, The Raveonettes’ Christmas Song was never intended for release. It eventually ended up as a B-side to their Heartbreak stroll single and quickly became the bands biggest selling song to date. The video was recorded in Sune’s NYC apartment. According to the band there was supposed to be a guy dressed up as a homeless Santa but he never made it.”
“Let Me On Out is probably the least commercial song on Raven In The Grave, in that respect you could refer to it as an anti-single. We really love the song. It’s beautiful, haunting, loud, and dynamic. Everything a great song should be. We wanted to showcase the song in a static setting to draw the listeners attention to the raw sound”
