Max Raptor stream debut mini album ‘Portraits’ over Facebook before April 11th release date.Max Raptor’s debut mini-album ‘Portraits’ is exactly that: micro-sketches of society, framing scraps of the world around them, painting with ambition, arrogance, anger, disillusion, greed, joy, futility, violence and pride.
From alcohol abuse to domestic violence, from maddening jealousy to plain ineffectuality, ‘Portraits’ illustrates humanity’s divergent weaknesses.
As explained by front man Will Ray; “Hysteria is a state of panic but it is also a word we use often to describe a state of joy. ‘Portraits’ says that from the rich to the poor to the famous, we all have a capacity to hate and to do wrong, and if we cannot celebrate that unanimity in music…well…I hate you all.”
Recorded at Fortress Studios with Dan Weller earlier in the year, ‘Portraits’ perfectly encapsulates their fusion of classic British punk attitude with an astute sensibility to a ballsy riff, forthright narrative and infectious hook-fuelled chant.
Portraits will be released on Aprill 11th through Naim Edge Records and will be avaliable to buy on CD and digitally via all the usual outlets.
