Named as 'One of Europe’s finest ’gazer bands of the last decade' [Daily Bandcamp], Rev Rev Rev remetabolize shoegaze and psych rock elements in a loud, woozy, fuzz-driven way.
Since their debut, their signature wall-of-sound inspired rave reviews and single “Catching a buzz” got airplay on BBC6 by the likes of Steve Lamacq, Radcliffe & Maconie.
Praised by influential outlets like Drowned in Sound, Clash, Decay FM, their sophomore “Des Fleurs Magiques Bourdonnaient” pushed even further the borders of their sonic belligerence. The album, out via Northern Light (CA) and CMM (US), sold out in 3 months, leading to a reprint on US label Neon Sigh (Telescopes, Ringo Deathstarr).
Their live set at Manchester's Cosmosis Festival, headlined by The Jesus & Mary Chain, Brian Jonestown Massacre and WIRE, kickstarted a 44 date tour touching UK, France, Belgium, Austria, Switzerland and Italy, during which the band shared the stage with The Telescopes, Ringo Deathstarr and Gonjasufi.
Recently Rev Rev Rev hit the studio again with Sergio Pomante (Ulan Bator, Lay Llamas) on drums. The new album, produced by James Aparicio (Spiritualized, Mogwai, Desert Mountain Tribe) is due for release in 2019.
