Revocation is a heavy metal band that is based out of Boston, MA. This four piece trio originally formed in 2006 by Dave Davidson, Anthony Buda, and Phil Dubois-Coyne. They set out and played all around New England, and released a three song demo called, "Summon The Spawn." From then on, they worked on performing, and writing to release a debut album.
They finally made their debut in 2008 with Empire of the Obscene. The album instantly grew a lot of attention, because their sound is thought to offer a new look at 'thrash metal', or heavy metal, as I preferred to call them. Its on the technical side, but its also very fun and energetic, which is more than likely what drew attention to them.
The release of this album caused them to be signed to Relapse Records, and then ultimately Damage Records in 2009. There they recorded, "Existence is Futile."
The release of that one is what really set them on the map. They suddenly began getting praise from magazines and companies alike. Dave Davidson became the endorser for Jackson Guitars, and they got to set out on tour all over the world. It opened up chances to perform all over the US and Canada, as well as Europe, Japan and more. They have actually gotten to play 13 countries, and are still going strong today.
They also added Dan Gargiuolo in 2010 as a second tour guitarist, who joined them for all of these adventures.
In the fall of 2010, they they recorded another new album. This one was called Chaos of Forms and was still through Damage Records. It helped just bring them up another notch, and brought them even more touring opportunities. They even got to appear on the Relapse Record label show case in February 2012. 2012 brought them a new bassist, Brett Bamberger, and a new EP called Teratogenesis.
Fast forward to February 2013, and you will see Revocation recording their fourth studio album, which ended up being self titled and released in August of that year. They also got to take part in the Summer Slaughter tour, along side bands like The Diligent Escape Plan, Animals As Leaders, Periphery, Norma Jean, Cattle Decapitation, The Ocean, and more.
Which brings us to today, which actually happens to be the release of their fifth studio album, Great Is Our Sin. It is out today and because of that, we can't tell you how well its going to be received exactly. However, we did do a review of it a couple days ago, and feel very confident that everyone's going to love it.
Be sure to go get it on iTunes or in stores now, and use it to get excited because they are going to be going on tour very soon! Starting on July 26 they will be doing a tour here in the US. That tour will go through August 21, and then in October they head over to Europe to perform in Germany, The Netherlands, the UK, and more through November 11!
