Revocation Announce New Album and Headlining Tour, Drop Skull-Crushing Single


Hearing there’s a new Revocation album is like finding out that Halloween is coming early — it’s good news that we’ve gotta start celebrating this very instant. And lo and behold, today we learned that there IS a new Revocation album on the way, and that they also have a headlining tour scheduled, and that they ALSO have a new single out that fucking rips. Trick or treat, motherfuckers!

Revocation’s new album Netherheaven drops September 9th via Metal Blade Records, and is available for preorder. The first single, “Diabolical Majesty,” can be heard below. And it SHOULD be heard below, because shit rips.

Says frontman Dave Davidson:

“It’s always hard choosing the first single off of a new album, but we felt that ‘Diabolical Majesty’ really captures the mood of ‘Netherheaven’ overall. It’s a thrashing, death metal ripper that’s got a little something for everyone, whether you’re the first one to activate a circle pit at a show or if you just like to bang your fucking head. The music video was filmed by our good friends Dave Brodsky and Allison Woest, and they’ve once again outdone themselves on this one! Special thanks to the Sk8 Liborius crew for letting us rage in their space for a couple days.

“Lyrically, ‘Diabolical Majesty’ was inspired by the Satanic Temple’s ongoing struggle with the religious right and their battle to display the statue of the Baphomet in the face of censorship and legal action. To quote American author Chris Hedges, ‘The merger of the corporatists with the Christian right is the marrying of Godzilla to Frankenstein.’ These words ring even truer now that extremist Christian politicians have begun imposing their authoritarian rule as they seek to completely undo the separation of church and state.”
