Revocation is happy to officially confirm drummer Ash Pearson as the band's new full time drummer after the departure of Phil Dubois.

Pearson is most well known for his work in 3 Inches of Blood, and is a welcome addition to the line up. Front man Dave Davidson offered the following on the announcement:

"We're very stoked to announce that Ash Pearson is our new drummer! Many of you might already be familiar with his drum skills in 3 Inches Of Blood but for those of you who are unaware of his talents let us assure you that he absolutely KILLS behind the kit! We're looking forward to starting this new chapter of Revocation with Ash on board and can't wait for everyone to see him in action."

Here's what Ash has to say about our newly forged alliance: "I am very honoured to be joining Revocation.

"Hey everyone, as some of you may have heard, Phil has decided to pursue other projects and is stepping down as drummer of Revocation. We've had a great nine years together and are sad to see him go. We wish him nothing but the best with his future endeavors and we're all sure that he will continue to kill it behind the kit.

Phil himself had this to say: "It is with a heavy heart that I'm announcing I will be leaving Revocation. This was by far the most difficult decision I've ever made in my life, but after much soul searching I've decided that it is no longer the right path for me, so I will be moving forward to pursue new musical projects.

"I remain close friends with my brothers in the band, and support them 100% in all their future endeavors. I know such a talented group of guys will have a long and prosperous career, and I look forward to watching Revocation continue to grow and evolve. More...

Revocation Posts Third In-Studio Clip

Revocation today releases the third in a series of video clips covering the recording of new album "Deathless" (be sure to also check out Part 1 and Part 2).

"Deathless" was recorded with producer Zeuss at Planet Z studios in Massachusetts and is due out October 14th via Metal Blade Records. The label comments:

"The album is ten tracks of ambitious, catchy, and undeniably heavy material. Musically, cuts like 'Madness Opus' showcase a more deliberate Revocation - restrained, if even moderately so, to deliver a slow, near-dirge like track. Alternatively, the title track highlights the diversity of Davidson's vocals with a catchy chorus. It's an earworm the likes of which the band had only previously hinted. The rest of the album offers a refreshing variety of music and truly feels like an 'album,' rather than a collection of similar tracks. This is a refinement, achieved only through years of focusing on their craft."

Havok Vocalist Breaks His Wrist

Havok vocalist/guitarist David Sanchez has broken his wrist and the band will be forced to miss several dates on the current tour with Crowbar, Revocation, Fit For An Autopsy and Armed for Apocalypse.

The band will rejoin the tour in California in early October with Revocation's Dan Gargiulo will be filling on guitar while Sanchez returns on vocals.

Here's more in Sanchez's own words:

While hiking in Boulder, Colorado, I took a pretty nasty fall and ended up shattering my left wrist. Since I'm currently unable to play guitar, our friend Dan Gargiulo from Revocation has offered his 6-string services and will be laying down the riffage for the rest of our stint in the USA. I will still be doing vocals on the remainder of the upcoming shows and I cannot wait to get back on the road!

I'd like to apologize to anyone that was looking forward to seeing HAVOK in these coming days. We will definitely make it up to you. In times like these, one must remember the ancient American proverb, "Shit happens." See you on the road!!

One last thing! Here is some good news for a change. Pete's mom is making a full recovery from her recent accident and that means Pete Webber will be back behind the kit rejoining the tour in California. We want to thank Marshall Wieczorek from Wretched for stepping in on drums and doing an awesome job on such short notice.

The latest Havok tour dates are as follows:

"Symmetry in Black" tour dates feat. HAVOK w/ CROWBAR, REVOCATION, FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY, ARMED FOR APOCALYPSE
Oct. 2 - San Francisco, CA - DNA Lounge
Oct. 3 - Santa Ana, CA - Observatory

Pit Stories: Friends Don't Let Friends Stage Dive

Gather around metal heads: it's Pit Story time again!

This week Dave Davidson from Revocation shares a tale of trying to get a fellow musician to stage dive, who wisely turns the offer down.

Undeterred, Dave decides to show the fans in the mosh pit how it's done, with some unfortunate consequences. He tells the story thusly:

We were playing Cleveland at Peabody’s on the Darkest Hour Legacy tour and I was drinking at the bar with Misha from Periphery. The subject of mosh pits and stage diving came up and he said that he had never stage dived before. I was pretty drunk at that point so I was kind of teasing him about not doing it and challenging him to stage dive. He wasn’t into it so I went up and stage dove during Darkest Hour’s set and came out unscathed.

I came back to the bar and Misha was still not having it so I went for round two to prove my point… but then things didn’t go quite as planned. I dove off the stage backwards but I kind of over shot my jump so instead of catching my whole body the crowd only caught my legs which flipped my body around so that my head came crashing to the concrete floor.

I stood up in a daze after basically “piledriving” myself in the middle of the pit and felt a wetness on the back of my head. I soon realized that wet feeling was actually blood and one of the dudes who worked at the club was nice enough to take me to the ER. 8 staples later I was sent on my way. Misha got the aftermath of the stage dive gone awry on video for your viewing pleasure.

Revocation's forthcoming fifth album "Deathless" will drop on October 14th via Metal Blade. Get a taste of the release by hearing "Madness Opus" here or check out the title track at this location. Check out the end result of Dave's mistimed stage leap in the player below: More...
