REVOCATION have spent the last eight years converting fans to their cause with four full length albums, an EP with Scion AV, and a charismatic live show led by guitarist/vocalist Dave Davidson. The Boston-based band also features the staggeringly talented lineup of: Dan Gargiulo on guitar, Brett Bamberger on bass and Phil Dubois on drums. REVOCATION has firmly been established as one of the genre's finest and will continue their campaign as part of the Metal Blade Records roster. Their fifth album, Deathless, is a fitting debut for the label, and a definitive statement of intent from the band.

Deathless is set for an October 14th release, today the artwork, track listing and first single which is the title track, have been unveiled. The album is available in CD, 2LP and digital formats. Get a first listen to the song below and be sure to pre-order the album in one of the exclusive bundle packages including: CD + T-Shirt, 2LP + T-Shirt, and the deluxe package with CD, 2LP and T-Shirt.

Deathless was recorded with acclaimed producer Zeuss at Planet Z studios in Massachusetts. The album is ten tracks of ambitious, catchy, and undeniably heavy material. Musically, cuts like "Madness Opus" showcase a more deliberate REVOCATION - restrained, if even moderately so, to deliver a slow, near-dirge like track. Alternatively, the title track highlights the diversity of Davidson's vocals with a catchy chorus. It's an earworm the likes of which the band had only previously hinted. The rest of the album offers a refreshing variety of music and truly feels like an "album", rather than a collection of similar tracks. This is a refinement, achieved only through years of focusing on their craft.

Davidson adds, "Collectively, we feel that Deathless is our finest offering yet. The songs are incredibly varied and each one showcases a different element of the band. Technically, everyone is in top form on this record, as well, and we really pushed ourselves to deliver the best performances possible on all fronts. This is a new chapter and a new beginning for the band; we can't wait for this record to be unleashed in October!"

Lyrically, Deathless addresses life on the road and the band's commitment to touring, followed by even more touring. "Madness Opus" made its live debut when REVOCATION toured with DEVILDRIVER and WHITECHAPEL during the summer of 2014. Davidson discusses the track: "The crowd response for that tune has been overwhelmingly positive. It's one of the heaviest songs we've ever written, hands down, and has been a blast to play live. Lyrically, it's about one of my favorite HP Lovecraft stories, The Music Of Erich Zann. Fans of unnamable cosmic horror and punishing death metal will not be disappointed!"

REVOCATION begins touring in support of Deathless in September with CROWBAR in North America, followed by a full European tour with new label mates CANNIBAL CORPSE and AEON. Much is more is set to come - this is the beginning of a new era for REVOCATION.
