Boston death thrashers Revocation revealed details of the upcoming fifth full length studio release, and first with Metal Blade Records, "Deathless." The album is set for an October 14th release and the artwork and track list have bee unveiled. "Deathless" will be available in CD, 2LP and digital formats. The title track can be heard streaming in the player below and pre-orders can be made at this location.

"Deathless" was recorded with acclaimed producer Zeuss at Planet Z studios in Massachusetts. 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.

Davidson adds, "Collectively, we feel that "Deathless" is our finest offering yet. The songs are incredibly varied and each one showcases a different element of the band. Technically, everyone is in top form on this record, as well, and we really pushed ourselves to deliver the best performances possible on all fronts. This is a new chapter and a new beginning for the band; we can't wait for this record to be unleashed in October!"

Lyrically, "Deathless" addresses life on the road and the band's commitment to touring, followed by even more touring. Davidson discusses the track "Madness Opus," which debuted on the recent tour with DevilDriver: "The crowd response for that tune has been overwhelmingly positive. It's one of the heaviest songs we've ever written, hands down, and has been a blast to play live. Lyrically, it's about one of my favorite HP Lovecraft stories, 'The Music Of Erich Zann.' Fans of unnamable cosmic horror and punishing death metal will not be disappointed!"

Revocation begins touring in support of "Deathless" in September with Crowbar in North America, followed by a full European tour with new label mates Cannibal Corpse and Aeon. Dates and venues can be found below.
