Black Rebel Motorcycle Club w/ Night Beats

Revolution Live

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club heads to Revolution Live, with support from Night Beats on Wednesday, January 24.

For 15 years, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club has carried the torch for true rock and roll. The latest edition of the firebrand rock troupe, sees them at their most dynamic. Their sixth studio album, Specter at the Feast, ventures into diverse sonic territory, delivering their most ambitious offering yet. It’s an album of impossible dichotomies; opposing sounds amalgamate into a seamless, entirely coherent package, that rumbles with driving rhythms, and soars with skyward-arcing guitar howls. Robert Been delivers growling bass grooves on “Hate the Taste,” and Peter Hayes’ guitar wails on what may be their most hard-rocking song, “Rival.” Counterbalancing these frenetic outbursts are moments of star-gazing ambient textures, like the crystalline harmonics introducing the slinking album opener, “Fire Walker,” and the organ drones of “Returning.” There are moments of down-home blues paired alongside flailing punk bombasticism; gnarled dark rock shores upon uplifting, and optimistic anthems. Taking cues from all points of the band’s many years on the road, this record is the band’s most well-realized album to date.

August Burns Red w/ Born of Osiris & more

Revolution Live

August Burns Red is an American metalcore band from Lancaster, Pennsylvania formed in 2003. The band current lineup consists of vocalist Jake Luhrs, rhythm guitarist Brent Rambler, lead guitarist John Benjamin “JB” Brubaker, bassist and keyboardist Dustin Davidson, and drummer Matt Greiner. August Burns Red is generally credited as a metalcore band and has also been said to share traits of other genres such as progressive metal and thrash metal.  The band is also identified as a melodic metalcore band. August Burns Red songs frequently feature highly melodic guitar riffs, technical or odd time signatures and breakdowns.  Musically, the group has incorporated instrumentals such as the cello and the violin while also featuring song elements such as classical music inspired interludes, pushing the boundaries of what is considered ‘metalcore’.  They look like clean-cut suburban kids, but when August Burns Red plug in to play, they unleash a precise, powerfully emotional onslaught that has won them a loyal following among fans of adventurous hard rock.

August Burns Red will be heading to Revolution Live on Wednesday, February 7, with support from Born of Osiris, Erra, & Ocean Grove.

Tickets $23 advance, $25 day of the show.

Michael Franti & Spearhead at Tortuga Music Festival

Tortuga Music Festival

In creating their ninth studio album SOULROCKER, Michael Franti & Spearhead introduced a new sensibility to their potent hybrid of hip-hop, rock, folk, and reggae: a gracefully arranged take on electronic music that more than fulfills the band’s mission of making impassioned music you can dance to. Along with harnessing the Bay Area-based band’s dynamic energy for a more powerful impact than ever before, SOULROCKER again shows Franti’s singular ability to channel frustration into music that’s both thought-provoking and triumphantly hopeful.

Michael Franti & Spearhead will perform at Tortuga Music Festival which takes place from April 6-8 on the beaches of Ft. Lauderdale.

Full lineup and tickets for the festival can be found on their website:

Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark

Revolution Live

Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark head to Revolution Live on Saturday, April 14.

Featuring the core members Paul Humphreys and Andy McCluskey, the Liverpudlian synth pop group Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark released its first single, “Electricity,” on Factory Records; the record led to a contract with the Virgin subsidiary DinDisc. In 1980, the group released its self-titled debut album. It was followed by Organisation, which featured the U.K. Top Ten single “Enola Gay.” The band’s next few albums — Architecture & Morality, Dazzle Ships, and Junk Culture  — found the band experimenting with its sound, resulting in several U.K. hit singles. Crush, their most pop-oriented album, found more success in America than in Britain as the single “So in Love” hit number 26 on the charts. “If You Leave,” taken from the Pretty in Pink soundtrack, was their biggest American hit, climbing to number four. After a hiatus a full-blown reunion came in 2006, including both McCluskey and Humphreys. They dabbled in a few more projects and as soon as they were off the road they began writing songs for another album. Taking its name, and some inspiration, from Italian divisionist/symbolist painterGiovanni Segantini’s work titled The Punishment of Luxury, the band’s 13th album was made by the duo of McCluskey and Humphreys and released by White Noise Records in September of 2017.

Royal Blood

Revolution Live

Brighton duo Royal Blood channeled the blues-rock dynamism of the likes of the White Stripes and the Black Keys, yet they amped up the ferocity and volume with scuzzy riffs and blustering energy. Comprising drummer Ben Thatcher and bassist/vocalist Mike Kerr, the two-piece formed at the beginning of 2013. Although constrained to just two instruments, they made their presence known with pounding drums and heavily distorted bass guitar that drove the melodic intensity of their songs, alongside Kerr’s emotive vocals. Their debut self-titled full-length was recorded at Rockfield Studios in Wales reaching number one in the U.K. and Ireland. Tours with Iggy Pop and Foo Fighters followed, and in early 2015 Royal Blood won Best British Group at the Brit Awards, receiving their trophy from an admirer, none other than Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page. Royal Blood returned in June of 2017 with their sophomore LP, How Did We Get So Dark?

Royal Blood will head to Revolution Live on Monday, June 11.
