Rev Theory is back with fourth studio album, "The Revelation," which is set for a September 9th release. A striking lyric video for the scathing new track “Guns” is available below.
Rich Luzzi (vocals) states: "It's been an amazing experience recording these songs that were written and inspired from within. Julien and Matty did an incredible job producing this album and I am proud to have been able to lend my voice to it. This record takes me back to our very first release when we made music out of sheer love and passion.”
Matty McCloskey (bass) further adds: "This is the first time in our careers that we have been able to create freely. Finally given the chance to fully produce an album ourselves, we were able to capture the true vision that we imagined for Rev Theory since the very beginning. By incorporating our favorite elements from the past three records, we believe we have created the quintessential Rev album.” More...

Century Media Records founder, Robert Kampf, has announced the formation of new record label, Another Century.
The label will focus on hard rock and has already signed several ew bands to the roster, including Los Angeles rock veterans Rev Theory, New Zealand's rising stars Like A Storm, and Chicago based group The Bloodline. Kampf comments:
"Twenty five years after starting Century Media the excitement to do another version of the label could not be any larger. My undying love for rock has driven the formation of this label Another Century. Over the years great bands like Otherwise and In This Moment have been released on Century Media but sometimes got lost or felt ill mixed among some of the heavier CM bands. Another Century now has a clear path and mission statement: To develop and break the best bands in rock to come!!!"
Otherwise is gearing up to release sophomore album, "Peace At All Costs," on September 16th and currently is having success with the single, "Darker Side of the Moon," which is currently #29 on the U.S. Active Rock charts. The album was produced by David Bottrill (Tool, Muse) and mixed by Jay Ruston (Steel Panther). The band is set to hit the road with Like A Storm next month and will be appearing at Sacramento's Aftershock festival as well as Louisville's Louder Than Life fest.
Rev Theory, formed in 2002, has sold over half a million albums and is currently wrapping up the recording for a new album. The first single, "Born 2 Destroy," is making its way to radio soon.
New Zealand's Like A Storm self-released the EP "Chaos Theory: Part I" and made its way over to the States touring with the likes of Sick Puppies, Shinedown, Alter Bridge and Creed as well as hit several festivals. The band sent the single "Love The Way You Hate Me" to radio and personally called stations to play the track. The song became a hit, soaring up the charts, where it currently is sitting at number 22. The band will have a new full-length out on Another Century on October 28th and is currently on tour now, meeting up with Otherwise next month.
The Bloodline was formed by Shaun Glass (Soil) and features vocalist Travis Neal (Divine Heresy), guitarist Chuck Wepfer, and Frankie Harchut on drums. The Bloodline is currently in the studio recording a debut album.

"Attention all band, promoter, and booking agent friends. Diecast is currently organizing a benefit concert with 100% of the proceeds going to the recent Boston Marathon Tragedy.
"The One Fund Boston has been set up to help those who were affected by the tragedy.

"So far we have collected from my great friends in Crossfade, Rev Theory, Hollywood Undead, Diecast, Psychostick, and more... Need all the music community to step up here to do our part! All I ask is for a couple items. Hit me up if your band wants to help! They would be included in all the online ads, social media sites, band logo on the flyers, and their music played at the club during set changes, as well as in print ads! Hit me up ASAP and god bless!
"Let's show Boston how strong the music community is and what Boston means to the bands!!! Please email our management at firstname.lastname@example.org with ideas, questions, or comments.

Rev Theory, whose "Loaded Gun" webisode we premiered yesterday, has also recently released a new webisode that documents the recording of their song "The Fire." The song is featured on the band's forthcoming album "Justice," which hits stores on February 15th. "The whole premise behind 'The Fire' is kind of about a twisted relationship", remarked bassist Matty McCloskey when asked about the meaning of "The Fire."
Lead Guitarist Rikki Lixx talks about the recording process, "We just spent most of the day recording drum tracks for 'The Fire.' We did about 100 takes, but it came out and things are looking good."
Metalunderground.com brings you an exclusive new webisode from modern metal band Rev Theory discussing the track "Loaded Gun." In the clip below, the band takes you into the studio to show you the recording of the song and talk about the meaning behind it. "Loaded Gun" is featured on the band's forthcoming album, "Justice," which will be in-stores on February 15th.
Rich comments on the track: "'Loaded Gun' is a pretty cool song because most times songs talk about wanting to go to the party and 'Loaded Gun' is talking about getting away from from the party.

Interscope artists Rev Theory have partnered with online music gaming platform Jam Legend, which has just left private beta and is now open to the public!
Rev Theory’s song “Hell Yeah” will be available at launch, with current single “Light It Up” debuting next week. Both songs come from Rev Theory’s major label debut "Light It Up," which hit stores earlier this year.
Jam Legend is, according to the press release, "a free, browser-based gaming platform that simulates the thrill of rocking out to a sold out crowd, while enabling features never before available in console games such as Rock Band or Guitar Hero." CNet’s Josh Lowensohn called it “just brilliant,” and that experience is now available to players everywhere.
On the road this winter with Hinder for the Jägermeister Music Tour, Rev Theory has been playing to sold-out crowds and, in their off time, reviewing videogames on their bus for IGN.com with their Gamercast video series.
Rev Theory has streamed live videos of their singles "Light it Up" and "Hell Yeah" performed in Kansas City online. You can watch the videos below. More...

The band will also continue their relationship with the gaming world and EA Sports with “Hell Yeah” featured in this year’s EA Sports classic Madden '09.
The band's latest album, "Light It Up," is in stores now.
