REVOCATION Enters The Billboard Charts With Great Is Our Sin

July 22nd saw the release of REVOCATION‘s sixth full-length album Great is Our Sin via Metal Blade Records.  Once again the band has cracked a number of Billboard’s Charts:


#1 Top New Artists / Heatseekers
#6 Current Hard Music Albums  
#11 Top Independent Albums
#17 Current Rock Albums
#54 Current Top 200 Albums 
#99 Digital Albums
#189 Billboard Top 200


The band commented on Great is Our Sin‘s chart debuts:
We’d like to send out a huge thank you to all of our fans that purchased our new record! We’re extremely grateful for all of your support, thanks to you guys we’ve achieved our highest first week sales to date!


The guys are currently shredding their way across North America as part of The Summer Slaughter tour, which stops tomorrow in Minneapolis, MN and runs through August 21st in Atlanta, GA.


The band’s video for “Arbiters of the Apocalypse” can be viewed at http://metalblade.com/revocation where the album is available for purchase as well.


Reuniting with producer Zeuss (Hatebreed, Bleeding Through), who also helmed 2014’s Deathless and 2012’s Teratogenesis EP, Great Is Our Sin packs the requisite punch, yet retains the organic feel with which it was conceived. Known for their technical prowess, the band remained dedicated to upping the ante without ever losing sight of the importance of good songwriting. Whilst the lineup has changed over the ten years REVOCATION has been in existence, Dave Davidson’s (guitars / vocals) passion has never waned, and they are arguably sounding better than ever as they look toward the future. “We can’t wait to bring these songs out on the road and perform them for different audiences all over the world,” Davidson comments. “‘Great Is Our Sin‘ is a new chapter for the band, and collectively we feel that it is our defining record to date.”
