Ragdoll announce new album Back To Zero
Perth rockers Ragdoll are set to release their long awaited debut album ‘Back To Zero’ in Australia May 6 via Firestarter Distribution, closely followed by a string of shows across the country. Built around the classic trio format, ‘Back To Zero’ is an epic slab of hard rock with a sound that owes as much to the arena rock of the 70's and 80's as it does the grungy sounds of the 90’s.
Led by the powerhouse vocals of Ryan Rafferty and backed by the shredding guitars of Leon Todd and pounding drum grooves of Cam Barrett, ‘Back To Zero’ may tip its hat to the past but is a thoroughly modern record. Avoiding the genre’s cliche of sex, drugs and rock n' roll, ‘Back To Zero’ instead explores lyrical themes ranging from social media addiction (current single The World You Gave Us), technological alienation (Rewind Your Mind), domestic abuse (Letting Go) and the existential (Shine).
