NThe New Year started quite a bit different than expected for RAKE in 2003. After a couple of years that saw RAKE on the main stages at such major Canadian music festivals as Stage 13, touring in support of such major acts as Nickelback, Default, 54-40, Big Sugar, The Watchmen, and Theory of a Deadman, and a development deal with a prominent Canadian record label . things weren't all roses for the band at the start of this year. Despite the fact that there was an ever-increasing interest in the band, their former lead singer decided to pursue other options and left RAKE. This would have left most bands reeling . but not RAKE! The hunt for a new singer started in earnest. During the summer, Chris "Maz" Ryan decided to get his band in to the studio to record a demo or two. It couldn't have worked out better! Engineer Phil Anderson (Powersound Studio) knew that RAKE was looking, and was impressed with Ryan's abilities in the studio. He made a suggestion . Maz met the band . and the rest, as we say, is history! RAKE was back on the scene!

Fueled by the injection of Maz's raw energy and amazing vocals, RAKE is ready to once again make a run for the top. A veteran rock band that's been together since 1996, Jode, Chris, and Robin couldn't be happier! Building on their previous two independent releases (RAKE - 1997/Ritual Human - 2000) RAKE is hard at work writing another tour de force rock album. RAKE is also busy booking shows to reassert themselves as one of Canada's premiere live acts! Look for them at a venue near you soon!
