Album Notes
Raid the Quarry is an "amps-to-11"-style rock band from Raleigh, NC, playing high-energy, hard-hitting modern rock. Drawing on a broad tradition from classic rock to hardcore, blues to punk, RtQ combines singable melodies and head-banging beats into an approachable alt/rock sound familiar to fans of Anberlin, Foo Fighters, and Weezer.

Frontman Daniel Stidham’s songwriting has been compared to 90’s paragons such as Incubus and Jimmy Eat World; and the band’s 2016 EP, PRIORITY ONE, reflected early-00’s pop-punk and post-hardcore like Story of the Year. “There aren’t a lot of people making the music we’re making right now,” Stidham says. “That’s why we keep making it. It’s the music I love, the music I want to hear. So it’s something we’re passionate about and I think it’s a void we fill in the local scene.”

TEMPORARY CEMETERY, their first full-length album, finds Raid the Quarry diversifying their sonic palate with a greater range of dynamics, tempos, time signatures, and vocal arrangements. An emphasis on huge snares and driving rhythms remains, while guitars are crisp and natural - the result of playing through loud amps with minimal effects. Guitarist Brian Rogers contributes an off-handed, folksy vocal and writes four of the record’s ten tracks, making this a true collaborative effort. Buoyed by the implacable on-stage energy of bassist Aaron Farnsworth and drummer Trey Yoder, Raid the Quarry will continue to bring the music they love to the Triangle and beyond.
