Product Overview

Do you know how often a vintage-riffed, throat-blazing anthem comes along? The kind of song that whether it's cranking off your stereo or pummeling you live from the stage, it demands your heartfelt, fist-pumping participation? You must join in the chorus or the shame is just too much to bear? "Gimme a Hell/Gimme a Yeah/Stand Up Right now!" Track one on Rev Theory's triumphant new LP, Light it Up, is destined to be a concert call to action that will raise the roofs off every building these east coast-bred rockers invade on their trek across Planet Rock. "Hell Yeah" is a raging hard on, poised to penetrate, and the exquisite pain upon entry symbolizes how good it can feel when a group of musicians really nail it.

Artist Bio
Rev TheorySome bands take years to write and record that first record. You only make your debut once. Certain acts nail it right off the bat, find the groove, the move, the message, the splendor and the blunder and oh yeah, the wonder. The Doors and Pearl Jam found it in a flash. So did Guns N' Roses. Revelation Theory, however, did not.Make no mistake, Truth is Currency -- the band's 2005 toe-dip into the ocean of professional rock n' roll, produced by Grammy winner Paul Ebersold (3 Doors Down, Saliva) -- is no slouch. It's an honest, raw, somewhat timid yet well-intentioned effort. Highlighted by the gritty "Slowburn," the LP did what a virgin indie (Element Records) release is supposed to. It put the band on the road, in a van, with a pizza and Pepsi diet and taught them the priceless art of how to judiciously juggle the back bunk when a local lady demands a personal tour of the bus. In other words, Truth is Currency permitted Revelation Theory a glimpse of the dream or in romantic terms, a career.Young acts get so Tsunami-ed by the illusion that because they have a record and a tour, their shit suddenly stopped producing an obnoxious aroma. Take it from a fly whose buzzed around these walls since commissioning the review of The Crue's Too Fast for Love for Chic Magazine in 1983, no glory cometh to the lazy or entitled. Too Fast sucked in many ways except one: Its raw, uncaring, attitude ignited the 80s glam metal movement all the delight and decadence that came with it. The Crue also toured their tattooed leather trousers off and Nikki Sixx never stopped writing. In 1990, evolution spawned Dr. Feelgood, a hard rock masterpiece.Which brings us to the purpose of my inhaling this rarefied air of corporate composition. I f***ing LOVE the second, brave, loud, crunchy, hook-sick, bombastic, Appetite-inspired long play from the band once called Revelation Theory but who now simply go by the brilliantly ambiguous moniker, Rev Theory. My theory is that Rich Luzzi, Julien Jorgensen, Dave Agoglia, Matt McCloskey and Ricky Lixx aren't that hung up on names. Revelation, revolution, revulsion, reversion, reverence -- just call 'em Rev then shut the f*** up and prepare to rock.
