Revocation To Release New Album “The Outer Ones” In September, Announce North American Tour

Revocation have announced that their new album “The Outer Ones” will be released on September 28 via Metal Blade Records. With this news, the group have also announced a tour with Exhumed, Rivers Of Nihil, and Yautja. You can see the dates for that run below.

Dave Davidson said the following about the album:

“I knew that I wanted to go in a darker direction, and this is our most death metal album to date. Sometimes when death metal bands go down the prog route, they lose some of that edge, but we wanted to keep the aggression at the forefront of what we do while still pushing our boundaries.”

He also added:

“The title is my ode to H.P. Lovecraft and the entities of pure cosmic horror that rule that universe he created. Since the new music we were writing was so evil and spacey in sections it seemed to be the right title to fit the overall vibe. But while the lyrical content is largely influenced by such writings, in every allegory there is of course some reflection of the real world, so I enjoy writing in a way that could have one overlaying meaning and then another deeper, symbolic meaning as well.”

Former Revocation Drummer Phil Dubois-Coyne Accepts $30,000 Settlement After Oklahoma City Arrest

According to NewsOK, former Revocation drummer Phil Dubois-Coyne, who also serves as a drum tech for Cannibal Corpse, has accepted a $30,000 settlement from the Oklahoma City Council, after filing a suit against the city and three police officers for false arrest and excessive force. The suit stemmed from an August 8, 2014 arrest that left him with a broken arm during a Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Fest after-party.

Dubois-Coyne was detained and charged with public drunkenness, disorderly conduct, and resisting a police officer. Before his arrest, he was apparently chanting “Fuck the police” and “Kill the police,” however his attorney has argued that the chanting was protected under the First Amendment and that part of it was just lyrics from Body Count’s “Cop Killer.”

Dubois-Coyne was treated at a local hospital and spent 12 hours in jail that night, and pleaded no contest to public drunkenness in Oklahoma City Municipal Court last November. He had to pay $178 for that, but the other charges were dismissed in 2015.

Dave Davidson Discusses New Revocation Material & Upcoming Side Project

Revocation’s Dave Davidson was recently interviewed by Ghostcultmag.com, and discussed some of the new material the band have been working on. You read what he had to say about that and his upcoming side project with Berserk Lout (Ayahuasca) below.

Davidson on new Revocation material:

“We are writing new material right now. We got a lot of cool songs in the works. I’m really excited about the new material. We’ve definitely been on a trend of getting more and more death metal on each release, and I think it’s gonna continue on that path. This is probably going to be our most death metal album to date. It’s also super progressive though. It’s going to be like a mean, progressive death metal record, with some thrash elements thrown in. I’m stoked on it.”

He also added the following about his new side project:

“We wanted to use Virus as a base for our sound. From there it’s developed and morphed out into it’s own thing. Vocally it will be all singing, there’ll be no screaming. It sounds like a weird amalgamation of avant-garde influences like Virus, some cool hooky vocal melodies, like some parts remind me of Alice In Chains, some parts remind me of Faith No More.

The dude I’m working with, Lout, he’s a Canadian, he lives up in Toronto, he’s the guitar player for Ayahuasca. They’re an incredible metal, rock band, and it’s a real pleasure to work with him. He’s super talented, and yea, I think we have about seven songs written so far, so we need like three more to go and we’ll have a full length. I’m probably saying too much right now cause I have no idea when we’re gonna get other members, or thinkg about recording, but that’s been in the works…”
