We can hardly believe it - there's just under a week to go until Raw Silk hits the stage live for the first time in 10 years at the awesome rock venue The Crow Club right in the heart of Athens!
The new line up is hard at work rehearsing and polishing the set list that promises to bring you a really memorable and exciting gig with the full compliment of both albums - the world premiere of the acclaimed new album The Borders of Light and the all-time classic Silk Under the Skin.
This will be the first time in history that we've had enough original material to do a full set which also means that, surprisingly, it will be the first opportunity we've had to be the headline act. (That is unless you count our amazing time at Bobby's where Raw Silk were the resident band back in the 1990s).
There's still plenty of time for you to remind yourself of (or learn) the lyrics if you fancy adding to the atmosphere by singing along, especially with the Greek lines in the title track from The Borders of Light which we'd definitely love your help with:
Κι αν ξανοικτείς μέσα στης Στύγας τα βαθιά νερά
Σαν εραστής αγνός της Νύχτας της παντοτινής
Κι όταν διαβείς την παραμεθώριο του φωτός
Θά᾽ρθω εγώ να σε βρω στου ονείρου τις πηγές
The Silk Under the Skin album lyrics are available here and The Borders of Light here. Or check out the lyric videos on youtube here.
We'd love to take this opportunity to give a big shout out to everyone who has worked so hard to make this happen, not least the amazing crew at The Crow Club, our loyal and new fans plus the event's sponsors Fairplay, Black Rock Live, Rockway.gr and Rock Star Energy Drinks. You guys are awesome!
We're so fired up and looking forward to meeting many of you there.
