Denmark's currently hottest Classic/Melodic/Hard Rock newcomer
RASPBERRY PARK are a part of the POWER PROG family since the
end of 2013. Their debut album "Scratchin' The Surface" has been
released at April 18, 2014 and could be one of the real Classic Rock/Hard
Rock highlights of the year. The listeners of the trade press are very
impressed and talk about a great success already in advance!
RASPBERRY PARK originally started as a songwriting project between
Mikkel Bryde and Jes Kirstein. The idea was to write and produce for
other artists. But it was not long before they realized that there was much
more potential here. They invited Morten Maltesen and Jesper Andersen
to join ... and RASPBERRY PARK was founded. All members have their
deep roots in the Danish rock scene, consisting of musicians with long
careers working with some of Denmark’s biggest acts.
Melodic Rock, Hard Rock, Classic Rock, AOR and a heavy dose of
modern rock is all being mixed into a very recognizable sound entirely
their own. Strong and catchy songwriting, extraordinary musicality, an
impressive production ... Everything on the highest professional level and
with no dropouts. Without exaggeration this is what you can clearly say
about this debut album: All killer, no filler!
In late 2013 the band signed with German label/media company POWER PROG and is now ready to release
"Scratchin’ The Surface“. The first two outcoupled singles ”On The Battlefield” and ”Paradise” were very well
received by the critics and the fans, especially "On The Battlefield" has brought it up to #15 in the Danish
Chartbase Top 100 and #12 in the Chartbase Rock Charts ... a permanent guest since several weeks. And
"Paradise" is waiting in the wings for the next trick!
The video clips for both singles can be watched here ...
RASPBERRY PARK is hot to be unleashed on the world and on a wider audience, with a timeless brilliant Rock
album full of potential classics and with great ambitions to perform their works "live and in full color"!
