Ravagers - "Shake the Reaper"

Photo by Shane Gardner

Baltimore's Ravagers are just pure classic punk fury. Well... maybe not pure punk. Their latest single, "Shake the Reaper," sounds like it would pre-date punk, but it's not quite Detroit style proto-punk. Instead, this is a more glammed up version of The Stooges that reunited in the early 80's to retake their rightful place as punk icons, but got caught up in metal while doing so. As gritty and edgy as "Shake the Reaper" may be, there is still this insane joy in the song and some unexpectedly catchy hooks. If this had come out twenty years ago Ravagers might have gotten caught up in the whole garage rock revival, although they could have been a little too punk for the mainstream.

You can watch the video for "Shake the Reaper" below. Badlands is due out February 4 on Spaghetty Town Records and Wanda Records. For more on Ravagers, check out the band's Facebook and Bandcamp. Upcoming tour dates with Suzi Moon are below the video.

On arrival at Dehradun airport or railway station, meet and greet our representative and get an assisted transfer to the hotel, on arrival complete the check-in formalities at the hotel, and relax. Later in the evening, our representative will be briefing about the tour, and will handover Duffel Bags for carrying the necessary luggage for the journey ahead. After the briefing, surrender yourself to the world of dreams.
