REVOCATION Post Second Video From The Making of "Deathless"

REVOCATION have spent the last eight years converting fans to their cause with four full length albums, an EP with Scion AV, and a charismatic live show led by guitarist/vocalist Dave Davidson. The Boston-based band also features the staggeringly talented lineup of: Dan Gargiulo on guitar, Brett Bamberger on bass, and Phil Dubois on drums. REVOCATION has firmly been established as one of the genre's finest and will continue their campaign as part of the Metal Blade Records roster. Their fifth album, "Deathless," is a fitting debut for the label, and a definitive statement of intent from the band.  The artwork for "Deathless" was hand painted by internationally recognized tattoo artist Tom Strom. 

"Deathless" is set for an October 14th release, today the artwork, track listing and first single which is the title track, have been unveiled.  The album will be available in CD, 2LP and digital formats.  Get a first listen to the song HEREand be sure to pre-order the album. 

During the recording process, the band shot a series of videos documenting their work on "Deathless".  Today the band has posted the second video in the series.  Check it out HERE.  The first video in the series can be viewedHERE.

The second song from "Deathless" entitled "Madness Opus" can be streamedHERE.

"Deathless" was recorded with acclaimed producer Zeuss at Planet Z studios in Massachusetts. The album is ten tracks of ambitious, catchy, and undeniably heavy material. Musically, cuts like "Madness Opus" showcase a more deliberate REVOCATION - restrained, if even moderately so, to deliver a slow, near-dirge like track. Alternatively, the title track highlights the diversity of Davidson's vocals with a catchy chorus. It's an earworm the likes of which the band had only previously hinted. The rest of the album offers a refreshing variety of music and truly feels like an "album", rather than a collection of similar tracks. This is a refinement, achieved only through years of focusing on their craft. 

Lyrically, "Deathless" addresses life on the road and the band's commitment to touring, followed by even more touring. "Madness Opus" made its live debut when REVOCATION toured with DevilDriver and Whitechapel during the summer of 2014. Davidson discusses the track: "The crowd response for that tune has been overwhelmingly positive. It's one of the heaviest songs we've ever written, hands down, and has been a blast to play live. Lyrically, it's about one of my favorite HP Lovecraft stories, "The Music Of Erich Zann". Fans of unnamable cosmic horror and punishing death metal will not be disappointed!"

Revocation are touring in support of "Deathless" now with Crowbar in North America, followed by a full European tour with new label mates Cannibal Corpse and Aeon.  The tour stops tonight in Englewood, Colorado and is set to run through October 10th in Houston, TX.

Due to an arm injury, Phil Dubious will unfortunately not be able to perform live with Revocation this fall. Jon "Charn" Rice of Scorpion Child, formerly of Job for a Cowboy will be filling in on the band's shows with Crowbar, and Ash Pearson of 3 Inches of Blood will be filling in on the band's European dates with Cannibal Corpse.
