A litle history about Revolver...
The birth of Revolver Records can be traced back to 1982, having started as an offshoot from its sister label Heavy Metal Records (which itself began in 1979). Since then, Revolver has been at the forefront of new music, signing acts such as The Stone Roses & Jane's Addiction. Today, Revolver Records operates alongside Heavy Metal Records as a fully-fledged label in its own right, releasing new artists, sourcing and promoting new talent from the Midlands, the UK and further afield. We're also behind some exciting new projects, including a new project called Revolver Digital, offering services and opportunities for artists wishing to focus on their online strategy and get their music online and available to buy as soon as possible!
We're also rolling out our new Fairtrade accredited, organic cotton garments through our sister company Revolver World. Look out for our shirts in all Mid-Counties Co-Ops, with a nationwide launch imminent!
Even with the raft of innovative new services and products we're launching, we are still seeking to ensure that Revolver continues to bring the world the best new musical acts around whilst continuing to challenge people's perceptions of indie labels. Rest assured that even while we're adding more and more of our catalogue to the site, we'll still be doing what we do best - releasing great music, and this site's where you'll hear it first.

We're privileged to have had some of our artists (Witchfinder General, Accept and Wrathchild) take centre stage in a big feature in Hails & Horns mag recently - read on for a snippet (a ...
