The Raids get into our head with their sounds and words.

Discover everything you need to know about this unique two-piece rock band from Sydney.



Tell us a bit about the band name, does it hold any special meaning?
The name comes from an experience in an area that is renowned for raids. It was an idea that eventually we got hooked on and carried ever since.

What would you say is your band's forte and what do you guys still need to work on?

Our forte would be dynamics within the songs we perform. There’s always room for improvement with our set. We would probably need to work most on our stage presence being a 2-piece rock band.

With the number of battle of the band events around, what made you guys choose Emergenza?

We've entered 2 years ago and it was a good challenge and experience for us. Emergenza creates a platform for furthering your potential and we know what Emergenza has to offer. We probably weren't ready back then. This is something we’re really looking forward to.

What are the main themes or topics for most of your songs?

Our themes involve a mixture of welfare, love, partying and life experiences.

What type of promotion have you guys done that’s worked well for you? Any total flops?

Our website promo www.theraids.com has worked reasonably well. On the other side though, you can only do so much with the social networks and at the end of the day, people still need to make the decision of whether or not they would like to see us. It’s still a great tool.
One of the biggest flops, just waiting for people to respond. Have to go out there and get it.

What do you hope the future will bring for The Raids?

We hope that the future will provide an opportunity for the world to experience the journey and music of The Raids. We are inspired by mixed genres and hope that we can one day be an influence to others as well.
