Roadrunner Records are delighted to announce the signing of boisterous Welsh metal quartet Revoker. Hailing from the depths of Wales’ Rhymney Valley, the band will soon start work on their debut album with Skindred’s Benji Webbe for an early 2011 release.
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 Mathias comments, “Getting signed to Roadrunner is amazing and almost surreal. I’ve grown up listening to bands like Megadeth, Slipknot and Machine Head. So to be a part of the same label as them is nuts! I think Roadrunner is the perfect home for Revoker!”

Lancaster, Pennsylvania’s THIS OR THE APOCALYPSE
is set to reveal a brand new track today, entitled ‘Charmer’ from their Good Fight Music
debut, Haunt What’s Left
. The track will be located at their MySpace
page. Haunt What’s Left is produced by Josh Wilbur and LAMB OF GOD’s Chris Adler, and is set to hit stores on June 22nd, 2010. When asked to comment on ‘Charmer’, Adler stated, “This is the shit that makes me get up in the morning. This is not the hit, this is not the second single, this is not the third – it is the ‘shedding skin’ tune. This gives me goose bumps and makes me jealous.”
THIS OR THE APOCALYPSE vocalist Ricky Armellino had a few words of his own to express the meaning behind ‘Charmer’. “The more I struggle to learn about myself, the more I just abhor the amount our society consumes. It’s disgusting that a religious belief could make one feel empowered enough to irresponsibly destroy and consume other forms of life because they feel that there is an “afterlife” only for themselves and nothing else,” starts Armellino. “One of my dearest friends calls me a “charmer” because I tend to be cunning and persuasive when I talk to others, it’s a gift and a curse; you can be so convincing that you can even distort the truth in your own eyes and make yourself believe you’re not one of ‘them’, you’re not to blame. I named the song after that nickname because I always want to remind myself that I should be holding myself accountable first, the rest of the world second.”
