RockAvenger welcomes Dynamic Punk Rock band RAID 409 hailing from Switzerland with their fast-paced happy-feeling Skater song HALFPIPE. The 2015 born band consisting of Mike "The Bench" Widmer (Guitar/Vocals), Iso "The Wall" Merkli (Guitar/Vocals), Dave "The Grey" Recio (Bass/Vocals) and Michael "The White Thunder" Weiss (Drums/Vocals) introduced themselves to the Rock community with their 6-track debut simply titled "EP" in 2017. Two years later they released six Singles which were later combined on the second Album "Punket". 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. 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 each other in a pub. After a beer council Raid 409 has been born and they sealed the bond with blood, sweat... and beer. 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 managed 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 (National radio in Switzerland).
