Veteran British metallers RAVEN are tentatively due to play a Swiss festival in the days after the group's appearance at the Wacken Open Air festival in Wacken, Germany in early August. More details will be announced shortly. In the meantime, the group are still writing material for their forthcoming CD, which is not expected to surface before the end of the year or in early 2003.In other news, guitarist Mark Gallagher “continues to slowly recover” from the leg injuries he sustained (shattered ankle on one leg, most of the flesh ripped off the other) when a “20-foot wall” fell on him in early November. According to frontman/brother John Gallagher, Mark has been “building strength daily through his physiotherapy sessions, but still cannot walk.” Also on the RAVEN front, the band's early Neat Records albums are being re-issued on CD “with a real booklet & extra tracks” in April/May.
