The Raid (Show Us Them Aliens) is the first single taken from Andrew Hetherington's album 'Area 51'. The song title takes us back to the proposed Area 51 raid of 2019 that received so much press at the time, but ultimately failed to eventuate. The track features a catchy drum beat accompanied by a distorted synth bass line and a main synth melody that incorporates several pitch bends. The song is a fitting finale to the Area 51 album, which outlines the history of Area 51, the secret U.S. base in Nevada, which is rumored to house crashed UFOs and capture aliens.
