Raccoon Fighter bring horror and suspense back to the woods of New Jersey in their video for “LVLR”. The track is featured on the Queens, NY trio’s new EP Hover Craft, which arrived last month on PaperCup Music.
Friends since grade school, Sean Gavigan (vox/guitar) and Zac Ciancaglini (drums) have been playing in bands together for over a decade. Originally from the small farm town of Vineland, NJ, the duo came up in Philadelphia and relocated to New York in 2008 to work in recording studios and start a new band. They played their first show in the summer of 2009 where they met Gabe Wilhelm (vox/bass) – also a Vineland native – who had relocated to do much the same in 2005. Wilhelm (who was previously in Ryan Adams band The Cardinals during the making of Easy Tiger) joined on bass and instantly became a permanent fixture and collaborative songwriter. Collectively combined, they’ve had the pleasure of working in the studio with Blonde Redhead, Real Estate, Willie Nelson, Minnie Driver and Warren Haynes to name a few. Their experience and versatility is apparent on Hover Craft.
