The Revolver Revolution Begins Here

We’ve been teasing you over the past few weeks with what we’re up to. Well, it’s time to reveal all. We’ve already brought you news of Pete Kent’s wonderful new album The Hidden Hand (look out for more news on how to get your hands on it shortly!) but we’ve been cheekily putting off the other news. Well, now it’s time. We can announce a string of reissues from our catalogue that run to the end of the year! It’s a collection we think you’ll enjoy.

In June, we will be celebrating the homecoming shows of The Stone Roses with a VERY limited run of 12″ vinyl singles of their seminal 1987 classic Sally Cinnamon. July will see a celebration of FM Revolver with a compilation of that imprints best bits. We are keeping our other July news under wraps…for now!

August is time to get the studs and leather out to usher in the complete Heavy Metal discography of Wrathchild in one handy boxset, along with live material from Witchfinder General and the lost Wild Spirit album.

September continues the trend of being loud with the complete Heavy Metal Heroes album collection, with the N.W.O.B.H.M. compilation thrown in for good measure. You’ll also be able to get your hands on the complete collection from the band that started it all at HMR, The Handsome Beasts.

October will see us look at our best bits from our 38 (!) year history with The REVXD Collection and also shine a light on the early days with The Complete HEAVY Collection while we’ll keep our other October release hush hush.

November will see the reissue of both Multi-Story albums and another little surprise while Christmas will become something extremely special.

That, as it stands, is everything. We’re always working hard here though, expect some more albums to sneak their way into this massive list and who knows what new bands will elbow their way into it all too.

2016 is the year of Revolver. I’d better get back to work!

NEW RELEASE!

Here at Revolver Records, we’re always working hard to bring you some of the best and most exciting new music. A few years ago, an incredible finger style guitarist by the name of Pete Kent released his debut album, ‘The Sands Of Time,” with us and showed the world that it’s not just the metal scene that can produce incredibly dextrous and talented guitarists. Now, he’s back with his new record “The Hidden Hand,” which we can exclusively reveal will be released….

MONDAY MAY 16TH.

We’re working on some special pre-order deals at the moment, so keep your eyes out for that, but right now, we can tell you that this record will be the soundtrack to your summer. We’re not going to give too much away just yet, but when we have finalised everything, you’ll hear it here first.

Be ready to be mesmerised by The Hidden Hand.

More Ways To Connect

Oh, hi there. How are you on this fine winter’s day? Good to hear it! Here at Revolver, we’re gearing up for a pretty busy year, and we’re slowly but surely giving you a ton of new ways to interact with us. You’ve seen on the right our Twitter feeds are live and being used as much as possible. Well, now we have our Facebook pages up and running again! You can either click on www.facebook.com/revrecs and www.facebook.com/heavymetalrecords or follow the widget links on the right. Youtube and Instagram are coming…just a ton of other stuff to do first!

Also, Raw Energee’s single “Climb The Wall,” is available now on all good digital stores, so make sure you check it out!

In Memorandum

It’s been quite a sad few weeks in the world of music, and here at Revolver, it’s been one that has seen many artists that shaped both rock and metal pass away. We would like to send our deepest condolences to the families of David Bowie, Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister, Scott Weiland and John Bradbury. All of them blazed a trail through their art and music, influencing countless thousands of young musicians and music industry workers to start and keep going with their craft. They have all left enormous legacies that will not be forgotten and they will be sorely missed.

May they rest in peace.

From the entire Revolver Team.

SURPRISE RELEASE!

Well, well, well, what have we got here? Little over 24 hours after we tease you with what’s coming this year, we hit you with a surprise release!

On January 15th, you will be able to download and stream the debut single from Raw Energee. Climb The Wall is the precursor to his debut album, and this talented producer has certainly lead with a strong one. It’s an infectious tune that will get stuck in your head for days, and will whet your appetite for the coming album.

This will be a digital only single, and will be available from all good digital stores. When we’ve got some links for you, they’ll be shared with you all!

Now The Dust Has Settled

Happy New Year from all of us at Revolver Records. We hope you had a great festive period. Now we’ve caught up (and believe me, it was quite alot to catch up on!) we’re getting our heads down on what we will be bringing you this year.

For starters, our very own Pete Kent, finger guitar player extraordinaire, will be bringing you a new album during 2016! We’re not going to give much away until it’s ready, but it won’t be long away so stay tuned!

Secondly, you can still get alot of our albums HERE and we’ve added some more stuff that’s turned up so our store is fit to burst with some awesome rarities and stuff for you!

Thirdly, we will be introducing some more social media stuff. As I’m sure you remember (and can see to your RIGHT) we got some new Twitter pages up where info will be updated, some candid snaps of the office at work (or not, as the case may be) and links to some of our releases. Well, hopefully we’ll have our Instagram page flying soon, and our Youtube channels too. This will just add to where you can find stuff out. Facebook is there, we’ve just gotta get it going again, bear with us!

You’ll be able to find many of our releases on iTunes, Amazon MP3 and various other streaming and digital sites. However, not everything is there. 2 reasons for this; 1) We may not have the rights to use them any more and 2) We may just have not got round to getting them up on those stores. Rest assured, we’ll be aiming to fix this as 2016 rolls on.

And finally, we’re in early talks with some bands about joining Revolver in the coming year. I can’t say much, but let’s just say you will have seen/heard of them before. It may also mean that some albums come back into circulation?

On that cryptic note, I’ll leave you to get on with your day! Stay tuned to Revolver during 2016, it’s going to be one hell of a ride!

So This Is Christmas

Well, it’s that time of year again where we turn off the lights, shut down the computers and hibernate for 2 weeks of food, drink and merriment. It’s been another busy year at Revolver, and 2016 promises to be a cracker. Discussions are ongoing as to what we’re going to do, but keep your eyes on our Twitter feeds: @RevolverRecs and @HeavyMetalRec for all the latest, and of course right here! If you’re buying from us or contacting us, be aware that we will get to it all in the New Year, so please be patient.

But, for now, from all of us here at Revolver Records, have a wonderful Christmas and a fantastic New Year.

Twisted Ace: Some Issues

Just a quick update on things. We hear that some of you are struggling to get hold of the new Twisted Ace EP. It has been sent to our digital partners, but, with the run up to Xmas, they have altered their upload days to try and combat overloading their servers etc. So, the new EP will be available very soon, we’re working on it to get all the links we can for you to get hold of the EP. In the meantime, keep streaming it, and checking back for information on where you can hear it on digital radio!

We’re sorry for the delay, but we can assure you, it’s worth the wait!

The Social Media Blizzard…

Hello all, how are you? Busy coming up to Christmas? Yeah, us too!

Now the pleasantries are out of the way, here at Revolver we would like to ask a small favour of you. As you’ll have noticed over the past week or so, there have been 2 little Twitter feeds on the right of the page. Well, we can’t seem to get into them for various reasons, so we’ve gone and created some more! All we ask of you is that you click the little FOLLOW box and join us on there too. We will be posting up information on new releases, re-releases, general music chatter and some cool little pics from our past. It’ll take all of a couple of seconds and then it’s over. Sound good? Good.

To add to this blizzard of social media stuff, we’re currently getting some photos of behind the scenes press clippings and such together for a Revolver Instagram page. That will also reside on the right of the screen, so keep your eyes peeled! Finally, we will get a nice shiny Facebook page together too!

Stay tuned to Revolver Records, the next few months are going to yield some pretty awesome things!
