Following on from their near sell out tour, stunning sets at Sonisphere, Damnation & Hammerfest, returning sludge overlords Raging Speedhorn are set to launch a Pledge campaign for their hotly anticipated fifth album.
Set to release the record later this year, the band have been teasing fans with the prospect of a new record since their return in February 2014. Earlier this year, the band released their brand new single “Halfway To Hell” which was praised widely by fans and media alike.
Drummer Gordon Morison had this to say on the Pledge and new record:
I’m really happy to announce that Raging Speedhorn will be recording a new record this year. We’re going to be teaming up with the guys at Pledge music for the as of yet untitled 5th record. We’ve always had amazing fans and now they have the chance to pledge and help us make the record, and in the mean time they can access exclusive content as well as getting their hands on limited edition pledge-only signed CDs, vinyl, screen prints and T-shirts, as well as Pledge-exclusive gigs, signed drum skins and much more.

Raging Speedhorn formed in 1998 and went on to release four records, the most successful being their second release “We Will Be Dead Tomorrow”, recorded by Billy Graziadei & Danny Schuler of Biohazard fame. The band achieved chart success with ‘The Gush’ in 2001, toured continuously with acts like Slipknot, Ill Nino, Rammstein and Will Haven, and performed at countless festivals across the globe, including main stage at the inaugural Download Festival in 2004. They split in 2008 following the release of their last record “Before The Sea Was Built” and a subsequent tour of Japan.
