Last week saw the release of the highly anticipated self-titled 4th full-length album from Boston Metallers REVOCATION. The numbers are in for the first week and REVOCATION has cracked the Billboard Top 200 Chart for the first time. The band came in at #158 on the Top 200 shifting just over 2600 copies. The album also came in at #4 on the Heatseekers Chart, #15 on the Hard Music Chart, #42 on the Independent Album Chart and #43 on the Rock Chart.
Frontman Dave Davidson commented on cracking the Billboard Charts:
“When I got the call today that we cracked into the billboard chart for the first time I was beyond stoked. We would like to sincerely thank all of our fans that picked up the record, you guys rule!!!”
REVOCATION‘s new album is streaming in full on their bandcamp page.
The Deluxe CD and LP contain an exclusive bonus track, a cover of the Metallica classic “Dyer’s Eve”. Check it out HERE.
The band recently completed work on a video for “Invidious”. The video was shot by David Brodsky (Municipal Waste, Whitechapel, Kylesa) at a sold out hometown show. The video will receive its premiere in the coming weeks.

“…this is meat-and-potatoes thrash metal–albeit, Wagyu steak and La Bonnotte potatoes.” –
“It’s a home-run, the kind of album that will get kids into metal and make metal fans high five. We can’t recommend it highly enough.” – MetalSucks
“Literally, this album has everything to make a metalhead like myself happy while also presenting a ton of original riffs and grooves that will no doubt bring in newcomers.” – New Noise Magazine (4/5)
“from the get-go they grab you by the throat.” 8/10 Outburn
