The Raven Age // New Video "The Face that Launched a Thousand Ships"
The Raven Age are premiering the music video for their new single “The Face that Launched a Thousand Ships” today. The song showcases the softer side of the English melodic metal band – highlighting the vocal quality of Matt James.
“We shot this video whilst on tour in the United States, in the desert just outside Las Vegas,” shares Guitarist George Harris on the new video, which was filmed during the Legacy of the Beast Tour with Iron Maiden earlier this year. “We thought it would help paint the picture of the story of Helen of Troy which is what the song’s written about.“
“The Face that Launched a Thousand Ships” is featured on the band’s recent release, Conspiracy. The second chapter of this band’s story takes on a fantasy world through 13 tracks that are as brilliantly catchy as they are deviously heavy, delicately balancing classic and modern metal influences with an alt-rock twist.
From epic opener “Bloom Of The Poison Seed” right through to grand finale “Grave Of The Fireflies,” the latest opus traps lightning in a bottle and laces cinematic flavors within concrete heaviness in a way very few have done before – dragging the listener deeper and deeper inside their dark dystopian reality. Truth be told, this is a band that are every bit as explosive as a blockbuster movie.
This release saw The Raven Age making their debut on the Billboard Top 40 Active Rock Chart with recent single “Fleur De Lis.”

Founded by guitarists Dan Wright and George Harris in 2009, The Raven Age has toured with the diverse likes of Iron Maiden, Tremonti, Mastodon, Killswitch Engage, Anthrax and Delain. After the announcement of new vocalist Matt James last year and a steady stream of new music and non-stop touring, it’s an exciting time for the group who were awarded Best New Band 2017 by Planet Rock and championed as “the UK’s next brightest metal hope” by Metal Hammer.
With a strong touring schedule, a new global partnership with Explorer1, the Hollywood, California based full service music company, and new music on the horizon, the next 12 months are set to be a monumental year for The Raven Age.
