Hailing from Eastern Europe, the hybrid electro/rock act Raizer is set to unleash a hard-hitting debut album on the FiXT imprint, titled We Are the Future. Featuring the band’s signature amalgam of rock, drum & bass, and varying styles of EDM, and mixed and co-produced by Sebastian Komor (Squarehead, Icon of Coil, Komor Kommando), We Are the Future is set for release on January 20, with pre-orders for the album and an instrumental version now available via the FiXT website. In anticipation of the album’s release, Raizer has released a lyric video for the track “Abduction,” with animation produced by ColdEyes Productions.
FiXT owner Klayton (Celldweller, Circle of Dust, Scandroid) first signed Raizer in 2015, having been impressed by the band’s demo submission via SoundCloud. In addition, Raizer has included a statement of the group’s Top 5 favorite electro/rock hybrid albums, offering further insight into the members’ collective influences.
