PARIS-MOVE, April 25th 2019 – Revocation re-signs worldwide to Metal Blade Records and Revocation is currently on tour in the USA with Whitechapel, Dying Fetus, Fallujah, Spite, Uncured, Buried Above Ground.
Revocation – who have been part of the Metal Blade Records roster since 2014 – have re-signed to the label worldwide!
Vocalist/guitarist Dave Davidson comments: “We’ve been on quite a journey since we signed with Metal Blade and dropped ‘Deathless’ back in 2014. We’ve released 3 full-length albums in just 5 years and each one has taken us to the next level. That’s why today I’m very excited to announce that Revocation is re-signing with Metal Blade Records! We look forward to what this future partnership will bring and we can’t wait to unleash another barrage of ripping tunes upon the metal masses.”
Metal Blade founder and CEO Brian Slagel adds: “We are super excited to continue our great relationship with Revocation. Very happy to keep them in the Metal Blade family.”
Revocation released their latest album, The Outer Ones, last year to critical acclaim, and are now touring the USA in support of it, with Whitechapel, Dying Fetus, Fallujah, Spite, Uncured, and Buried Above Ground.
Produced by Zeuss (Rob Zombie, Queensryche, Whitechapel, etc.), The Outer Ones sees Revocation pushing both the death metal and progressive elements of their signature sound harder than ever.
“I knew that I wanted to go in a darker direction, and this is our most death metal album to date,” states vocalist/guitarist Dave Davidson. “Sometimes when death metal bands go down the prog route they lose some of that edge, but we wanted to keep the aggression at the forefront of what we do while still pushing our boundaries.”
Moving away from the societal and historical themes that informed 2016’s Great is Our Sin, this time Davidson has immersed himself in the fantastic, evoking one of the great writers of the sci-fi/horror genre.
“The title is my ode to H.P. Lovecraft and the entities of pure cosmic horror that rule that universe he created. Since the new music we were writing was so evil and spacey in sections it seemed to be the right title to fit the overall vibe. But while the lyrical content is largely influenced by such writings, in every allegory there is of course some reflection of the real world, so I enjoy writing in a way that could have one overlaying meaning and then another deeper, symbolic meaning as well.”
