As you can say that two plus two equals four Raid 409 has been founded in 2015 in Zurich, Switzerland. Over the years the four guys developed a sound they call “Dynamic Punk Rock”. Tempo changes and influences of other music genres define their unique and energetic sound. It is an all new style to the scene which fits in perfectly. Recently they released a new EP called “Punket” with hits like “My Hand” and “Gravity Girl”.
All of them took their first steps in music during childhood. They followed the roots of the punk scene and its values since teenage years which inspired all of them early on. A few projects and bands later, they found together in a pub. After a beer council Raid 409 has been founded and sealed with blood, sweat and beer.
The truth is that Raid 409 is on a mission. Their music is all about fighting against ignorance in stubborn societies with their old-fashioned norms and ways of thinking, racism in all its forms, profiling and corruption. On the other hand they celebrate love, equality, progression, freedom and liberalism.
Raid 409 is a DIY band but the guys still have manged to put themselves on the screen of bigger venues all around Switzerland such as the “Zürifäscht” (as the winners of a band contest), “Alte Kaserne Zurich”, “Dynamo Zurich” and “JungKult Festival” in St. Gallen. They also had an international gig and shot a music video called “Telephone” in London.
Songs like “Telephone”, “Wake Up Call” and “My Hand” have regular airplay on Radio SRF 3 (Swiss national radio), Radio Zürisee, Radio FM1 and appeared in famous Spotify playlists like “Skatepark Punks”, “The Pop-Punk Revolution” and “Rocky Roads”.
