New Revocation album too!
The pile of shit just keeps building, doesn't it? By that I mean shit that's coming out this year, of course. A few days ago, Relapse Records announced that Boston tech-thrash heavies Revocation are currently wrapping up the recording for their third full length, the follow-up to 2009's widely-celebrated Existence Is Futile. In his statement, frontman/lead guitarist (showoff) David Davidson says, "...We firmly believe this is our strongest material to date. The songs on the new release are incredibly variead and all have their own character". As if the songs on the last album weren't/didn't? The upcoming album doesn't even have a name yet, or an official release date, though it is scheduled to come out sometime this summer so keep your eyes peeled. In addition, those of you who keep up with Decibel Magazine and its new Flexi Series should recall the band's remake of Death's "Pull the Plug". For those of you who don't, Revocation recorded a cover of "Pull the Plug" by Death and it was cool. Check it out right hurr.
Needless to say we're all very excited about this, there will plenty more updates as they are made available. In the meantime, Revocation do have a string of US dates throughout February and March, including a small tour with Atheist. Tour dates and lineups can be found aqui. Fap about Revocation as much as you'd like in the comments, and while you're at it remember to Tweet it to all your computer friends, or put it on your Facebook, with that "Share" button thingy. G'nite everyone, see ya tomorrow.
