ANTHONY THEAKER (HOPE OF THE STATES) MIXING DEBUT ALBUM..
We're delighted to have Anthony Theaker (formerly of Hope Of The States) on board to mix the album. Ant, who also produced Youthmovies' debut album "Good Nature", originally got on board to mix REVERE's latest single As The Radars Sleep (which you can hear on our myspace page) and we loved it so much we asked him to do the rest. The album is scheduled to be finished mid August and we have some exciting plans to announce about it nearer the time...
Hello all, Just back from playing at Standon Calling festival and feeling rather weary but a great time was had by all despite broken toes (Saul), absinthe comas (Stephen & Nick), sunburn (Ellie), wasp stings (Kath) and a general lack of sleep (EVERYONE)! We performed a brand new song - We Won't Be Here Tomorrow - which went down really well. It's an energetic belter of a tune which we really enjoy playing so expect to hear it at our next shows.
Our new single, As The Radars Sleep, is now available to download on iTunes and eMusic for just 0.79p. We do have a handful of CDs available featuring the single plus special bonus tracks that can be bought at our gigs only for £3.
Reviews for the new single are starting to appear ....
Revere could potentially be the most underrated band in Britain at the moment, everything they produce is of the highest quality and they have a majesty and confidence about their music that would have the more influential scenesters shouting from the rooftops about them if they were American or Canadian.
The follow up single to The Escape Artist lands and it’s utterly sublime. A twinkling joy from start to finish it’s just got an immeasurable beauty to it that makes them sound like no other band around at the moment. It can surely only be a matter of time before they crack the surface and head overground. The Beat Surrender
The Dreaded Press
We've also had thumbs up from two major broadsheet music critics, Stephen Dalton (The Times) highlighted our performance in his review of Wychwood Festival (see last paragraph here and the Telegraph's Neil McCormick picked us as his favourite band when asked to help select bands for the BBC Introducing stage at Reading/Leeds Festival. Unfortunately that didn't help with the final pick, which you can read about in his Telegraph article. You can't win em all!

More news about our forthcoming album, including preview of the artwork and title, coming soon.
I met the dark fourth & AlExMachina (right? I'm crap with names, let alone user names!) at a festival REVERE played the other day! Totally random, but much better than meeting people off the internet normally is! Sorry I couldn't hang about and chat guys, I was there on double duty with Gabby Young & Other Animals as well! Nice to meet you both and put faces to names though!
In other news, this album is yet to leave my stereo. I believe more news is fairly forthcoming about releases, tracklistings and all that jazz.
Nice to meet you too! We bought some singles and stuff, but the song I was most excited about was a very new one about two or 3 from the end. Very cool guitar riff thing going on. Don't know if you know which one we mean. Anyway, it was all cool tho this town needs guns was pretty amazing as well.
FINALLY taken the time to listen to them (well, the songs currently on their Myspace - I'm assuming that's a fair representation of their sound?), Ryan - apologies as you've been banging on about them on here for yonks now, and I've never gone and checked them out.
Anyway, finally made amends and listened to the Myspace songs... and I was a little underwhelmed. My early impressions of them are very similar to my feelings about iLiKETRAiNS (who I think Revere sound reasonably similar to, as it happens): pleasant enough to listen to and certainly more interesting than some more hyped bands (the NME darlings like MGMT/The Cribs/A.N.Other 'Cool' Band), but they don't excite me, if that makes sense. Wouldn't rule out giving their album a buy at some point (I own iLiKETRAiNS records as well - sorry if the comparison sucks!), but they don't set my pulse racing in the way that a band like PRR etc do.
The myspace stuff is reasonable, none of them are final mixes/versions and the album sounds better then anything on there (though most of the songs are on their they are different mixes/recordings). That's their fault for leaving that stuff there when the album is finished though! Aye, the TRAiNS thing is more than fair. Both of them are quite 'epic', lots of the quiet start and then a lot of song spent building to a loud crescendo. Sits under the post-rock banner, like Sigur Ros, Explosions in the Sky et al. I might be able to put up some/all of the album at some point, not sure.
