Enter this and an e-mail on revereonline.co.uk/mp3giveaway and you'll get the track Maybe In Time (if I've worked it out right). You can get a couple more tunes by referring a couple more people, or you can just have this tune for 'nout

Sorry for being a bit lame and posting this but...
REVERE are in this Storm the Charts thing on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/?ref=logo#!/group.php?gid=231943888357&ref=ts) where there's a group of people trying to get 40 unsigned bands in the UK singles charts. To find the bands there's a series of votes whittling down from some insane number to forty. I think it's happening over ten weeks or something and I can't be arsed to plug away for that song so I'd like REVERE (and Gabby Young) to win in week one! The two groups were the two highest voted in Round 1 but as the bands are narrowed down it's gunna get harder so the extra posts from you guys could really make a difference to it. If you could take a couple of minutes to vote in both polls I would be most grateful.
The video is a collaboration by directors Will Garthwaite and Rory Shaw of Distilled Films and Ryan Pearce of Albino Films, with a concept by Stephen Ellis of REVERE. It was shot over two days, with a fantastic principle cast and an amazing group of volunteer extras from the REVERE fanbase, and then edited in the following week ready to be launched of the day of the UK elections! Enjoy!
Dunno where I should mention this but Revere seem to maybe really getting somewhere at the moment. A lot of big deal playlists for this song and Sunday Times Culture had them as one of this week's top 4 downloads to get. Not exactly an indie-mag so maybe a little mainstream crossover beckons. Some good fests. The tune's great so well deserved - can't remember if it's the one that I really liked at Southsea (that one's certainly a newbie) but I'll probs get the album when I've sorted my life out.
Ah man, that's cool that's it's getting noticed without me rinsing it so hard! Yeah though, shit's going well. There's stuff in the pipeline.
And I believe We Won't Be Here Tomorrow is the new track they did when you saw them yeah, it was the one where Stephen (singer) didn't play guitar.
I think the album has been pushed back a touch (and I know how crazy it sounds but it's for all the right reasons this time and it's the last time AND there might be a way to get it a little quicker) but it's so nearly there and the ball is rolling quicker and quicker. In fact here's some big stuff
STORM THE CHARTS HAS NOW BEGUN...! WE REALLY NEED YOUR HELP FOR THIS TO MAKE AN IMPACT...
As of midnight on Saturday 27th June, during Glastonbury weekend, the Storm The Charts campaign has kicked in to action. As a result of you all voting for REVERE we were included in the final 40 bands to be pushed by the campaign in an attempt to fill the Top 40 with new, unsigned bands. Your vote has already made a huge difference, but we need your help to make it all worthwhile...
So what to do next...?
REVERE's new single, We Won't Be Here Tomorrow, is now available to buy online from a large number of online vendors including Amazon.co.uk and iTunes. To show your support for REVERE please purchase the single from one (or more than one if you're feeling very generous!) of the vendors listed below. Your support, when added to the efforts of the 30,000+ members of the Storm The Charts campaign group should help to raise REVERE out of obscurity and into the charts! To be eligible for this chart push you need to have bought the single by Midnight on Saturday 3rd July.
This is a great opportunity for us to make a real impact. Your voting and support has got us to this point, and it will be great if we can take this all the way...
Now I know it seems mental that we could get REVERE into the UK singles charts but we really really could. There a non-album b-side as on the single as well if you fancy buying a second track and getting some more good music. If there's anywhere anyone knows to repost this then PLEASE do. Or tweets maybe, facebook things, or blogs even? I'd love you. If anyone from here posts it about a bit send me a message or something and I'll find a track or two that are a bit rare I can send you by way of saying thankyou.
I was recommended to buy this by the Sunday Times Music Review Section and boy they didn't let me down. I need to get the album now because I want to hear what lies behind a single like this. The siren call of the guitars, the angel voice and the prophetic lyrics... When has rock and roll given a truer statement? If Cassandra had ever written a repost to Carpe Diem this would be it....
The wait is finally over and we're excited to announce that our debut album, "HEY! SELIM", is coming out on Monday 6th September 2010.
If you can't wait until then, go to our special pre-order site - store.revereonline.co.uk/ - and receive the album a week early, signed by the whole band.
For those that get there first, there's the chance to buy our special limited edition version of HEY! SELIM, lovingly created by members of the band and others by friends whose work plays an important role in our band's imagery. • Each album comes in a hand-made box featuring unique cover artwork • The Hating Book (hand made booklet) • Digital version of the album & album artwork • Standard Hey! Selim CD signed by the band • The Escape Artist DVD • Album badge • A piece of red rope from The Escape Artist video
For a lucky few, there are also some VERY LIMITED tickets to attend a private gig in REVERE's studio where the band will play exclusive sets including as yet unreleased material and rare covers by our biggest influences.
JOYZINE: "‘Hey! Selim’ shows Revere as a band with a clear vision of where they want to go, and the tunes and craft to take them wherever they wish. Seek it out now." - Paul Maps www.joyzine.org/revereheyselim.html (This is one of a number of features devoted to REVERE in this issue.)
So there it is. A lot of my time has gone into this site recently!
If you pre-order the album I think you'll get the digital version a week early (I THINK) with a .pdf of the artwork as well. The limited version is going to be totally beautiful and I'm really pleased we've put it together. The gigs in REVEREs studio are going to be insane, it's a tiny room!
