Welsh metallers Revoker sign deal with Roadrunner
Roadrunner Records are delighted to announce the signing of boisterous Welsh metal quartet REVOKER. Hailing from the depths of Rhymney Valley, the band will soon start work on their debut album with Skindred’s Benji Webbe for a 2011 release.
For a vote of confidence in the band’s bright future, look no further than Monte Conner, Roadrunner’s Snr VP A&R. Conner enthuses, ““Revoker are one of the most ass-kicking unsigned bands I have heard in a long time and I am beyond proud to welcome them to the Roadrunner family. Believe it or not, in my entire career at Roadrunner, they are the first UK band I have signed.”
Although Revoker officially formed in Spring 2006, frontman/guitarist Jamie Mathias and guitarist Chris Green have been playing in bands together since they became teenagers. The band’s engaging 19-year old mouthpiece Jamie comments, “Getting signed to Roadrunner is amazing and almost surreal. I've grown up listening to bands like Megadeth, Slipknot, Machine Head, and Slash. So to be a part of the same label as them is nuts! I think Roadrunner is the perfect home for Revoker!” Chris echoes his thoughts: “It's fucking mindblowing! If I could have picked any label then this would be it. I think this is the perfect label for us to be joining with. It's amazing to be part of such a mammoth roster with bands we've looked up to for years ourselves.” “If there's one label any metal band dream of signing to, it's Roadrunner!” finishes Shane Phillips (bass). “And I'm really excited to start working with them!” The group is rounded out by Jack Pritchard on the drums.
