You Bred Raptors?

Hi Peat… please present the band on Grande Rock, so that anyone unfamiliar with You Bred Raptors? will get an idea about the band…
P: You Bred Raptors? is a three piece busking band in NYC. We get legal permits to entertain and annoy commuters as they transfer trains. The band has 8 string bass (me), a cello, drums and two glockenspiels. We collectively said “Fuck singers and fuck guitarists”, though not in that order. We score films, play as a pit orchestra from time to time and incorporate circus juggling into our shows (also me) because why the hell not?

You Bred Raptors? - Grant

You Bred Raptors? were formed in 2010 in New York, US and since then they have released 3 full-length albums, including the newest one, “Grant”. I haven’t been aware of the band but I was glad I came upon them, cuz even though they are not a “rock group”, their music still is diverse, different and strange… it also has a “rock” background”…

Hi K’noup. Your new album “Aria” is truly magnificent! Thus, it now holds a place in our “Gem” category! Congrats!
K: Thank you! It was quite the album to record.
Hence, what the story behind Viza? What does this band mean to you?
K: The band began as a project in 2000 when I lived in NY as a Mediterranean/Middle Eastern outfit of folk-music, it turned into a band in 2006 in Los Angeles. It’s safe to say it’s my baby now all grown up.
