“Genuinely takes your breath away"

‘Revere has a great live reputation, their cacophonous multi-layered sound along with stunning live visuals setting them apart”

“Revere combine the fiery melodrama of Muse with the rousing chamber-pop of Arcade Fire. They could, and should, be huge"

“An extraordinary widescreen technicolor epic of a song...a stunning single by a stunning band..."

REVERE is a seven-piece rock band based in London, with members originating from all over the UK – from London through to Liverpool, from Newcastle to Edinburgh and as far afield as the Orkney Isles.

The band includes violin, cello, keys and trumpet along with the traditional guitars, bass and drums. The diverse line-up brings a variety of influences, including the cinematic scores of Nino Rota and Ennio Morricone; the soaring vocals and genre-tripping of Jeff Buckley; and the dark folk of Nick Cave.

REVERE combine these influences with elements of gypsy songs, post-rock, klezmer, film scores and gospel to produce cohesive, multi-layered and dramatic music which moves from tiny, musicbox openings to cacophonous walls of sound. The result is a sound often compared to instrumental alchemists like Sigur Ros, Arcade Fire and Beirut.

A REVERE live show is as likely to be a full-scale electric onslaught as an intimate acoustic show - either way audiences can expect dramatic live visuals to complement performances.

REVERE’s last single, We Won’t Be Here Tomorrow combines post-rock intensity with the kind of rousing, euphoric blasts of trumpet, strings and piano that has come to characterise the band.

The track won a string of superlative reviews and was Track of the Week in The Sunday Times and Q Magazine. It enjoyed plays on stations such as 6Music, Radio 2, BBC London and is a Steve Lamacq’s Rebel Playlist Winner.

REVERE’s self-released debut album Hey! Selim, recorded between a remote barn hidden out in the Scottish Highlands and Pinewood Film Studios, was produced by Dave Moore and mixed by Anthony Theaker (formerly of Hope of the States). It was launched by a Best Of MySpace show in September 2010 and hailed as a “remarkably assured debut” by R2 Rock and Reel Magazine.

As you’d expect of a band with such a strong live reputation, REVERE is a regular fixture on festival rosters, having played Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party and Standon Calling. They recorded their second 6Music live session for Tom Robinson in November 2010 and in March 2011 did a live acoustic session on the BBC London Sunday Sessions.

REVERE has just finished recording four new tracks due for release in the coming weeks. The new songs retain the euphoric sound and appetite for genre-hopping, but with a new taste for crowd-rousing choruses that echoes We Won’t Be Here Tomorrow and suggests an interesting new direction for a band that “could, and should, be huge” Stephen Dalton, The Times.
