Revocation to release new album in September, announces North American Tour dates

Posted by on June 5, 2018

It looks like our Fall schedule will be packed with awesome tours and we can add Revocation to that list as they announced a headlining fall run in support of their upcoming album The Outer Ones. Their overall seventh studio record will arrive on September 28th via Metal Blade Records, which is just in time for their September and October run. These tech death metal giants invited Exhumed, Rivers of Nihil, and Yautja as support for the month long journey that kicks off on September 17th in Baltimore, MD and concludes on October 20th in Boston, MA.

Frontman/guitarist Dave Davidson shared his thoughts on the new LP:

“I knew that I wanted to go in a darker direction, and this is our most death metal album to date. 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. 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.”
