Tour de Force




Let the debate rage on: the folks at Scion A/V are back in the metal game once again. Not only have they announced they’re sponsoring a Revocation headline tour with A Life Once Lost and KEN Mode opening, but they’ll be releasing a new Revocation EP called Teratogenesis later this month too! Get excitebike!

Plenty of true sXe hardcore kids will undoubtedly continue to cry foul at a car company continuing to promote metal records and tours, but to thee I say: who the fuck cares? Throw your horns up and headbang! Revocation absolutely KILL live and seeing them open for other bands is never enough. A Life Once Lost slayed The Metal Suckfest last year and it’s high time we see them again, performing material from their new album no less. I’ve only seen KEN Mode a couple of times over the years but they’ve always been great too, and I expect they’ll do the same when they play the 2012 MetalSucks / Metal Injection / 1000 Knives CMJ Showcase in October. This is a “can’t miss” fall tour if you live anywhere within striking distance of a show date.
