Latest Revocation News
Below is our complete Revocation news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Technical thrash metal act Revocation has posted some new footage from the studio online. The footage wad captured during the band's time spent recording its forthcoming new album, "Chaos of Forms," which will be released on August 16, 2011 through Relapse Records.
Young Denver thrash battalion, Havok, which recently wrapped up a tour supporting Florida death metallers Malevolent Creation, is gearing up for two very special treks. The first is a short run of headlining dates that will commence in Salt Lake City, Utah on May 3rd and run through to Amarillo, Texas on May 12th. From there, the band will head home for a short break before joining Bay Area thrash act Forbidden, for a near month-long journey that will kick off in West Hollywood, California and level 22 North American cities before drawing to a close in Escondido, California. Also joining the tour will be Revocation and White Wizzard.
Commented vocalist/guitarist David Sanchez: "Starting May 3, we'll be heading out for a west coast run. Touring the west coast was how we got our start, so it always feels like home. It will be great to return for some head-smashing headline shows. Then in June, we'll be doing a US/Canada run, coast to coast, with Forbidden, Revocation and White Wizzard! I am so psyched to be touring with all of these great bands! Forbidden is one of my favorite thrash metal bands and I really hope to hear some songs from their first two albums. Revocation is one of my favorite bands to have come out in the last 10 years and they're all friends of ours, so I'm super pumped to get to hang out with them every night! I anticipate White Wizzard to be epic-as-fuck every night as well. I'm very excited to be a part of this tour because I feel that it will be one of the best metal packages of the 2011. Metal fans definitely won't want to miss this tour. Prepare for some massive amounts of headbanging. Looking forward to seeing you all on the road!"

Metal Underground recently reported on the North American tour dates for Forbidden, Havok, Revocation and White Wizzard. Los Angeles metal traditionalists White Wizzard are set to play their first shows since the return of vocalist Wyatt Anderson.
White Wizzard bassist and founding member Jon Leon comments:
"I am very excited to be touring with Forbidden. Forbidden was my favorite band of the Bay Area thrash/metal scene back in the day when I was a kid. I also hold them in the highest regard in musicianship, song writing and technical ability.
"Their first three albums, "Forbidden Evil," "Twisted Into Form," and "Distortion" were all big influences on me and inspired me to want to be a musician. I saw many a show back then, and there was no band in that scene that could pull off a live show better than Forbidden. Russ is one of the few GREAT singers in metal history and he is the best of ALL TIME in the history of thrash. That includes the so called "Big Four."
"I was so bummed they split in the late '90s, and when they reunited I went up to the Bay Area to see them and it was still magic. I have seen them twice since and they are just getting better and better.
"It is great to go open for a band I respect so much and the best part will be being able to watch their set every night!! Forbidden is a special band and it is great they are back making music and touring again. We are very thrilled to be along for the ride this time."
