Raein is an Italian screamo band that featured members from screamo act La Quiete and the post rock band Neil on Impression. The band broke up in late 2005, but after a hiatus of almost 2 years (in which they played 2 shows) they got back to play together in September 2007. They are often held responsible for bringing the screamo genre to Europe, after the genre hit its high point in the US in the late 90's with the existence of bands like Orchid and Saetia.

In 2008, Raein released a new album, embarking on an extensive international tour in 2009 to support the new release.

In 2011 they released their album Sulla linea dell'orizzonte fra questa mia vita e quella di tutti for free on their website.[2]

At the beginning of 2013, the band once again embarked on an extensive tour of the USA, UK, Canada and Puerto Rico, playing 20 shows in 22 days. In April a 7" split with Loma Prieta was released on Deathwish Inc. records.[3]
