space, psych, shoegaze
Named as ‘One of Europe’s finest ’gazer bands of the last decade’ [Daily Bandcamp], Rev Rev Rev re-metabolize shoegaze and psychedelic rock elements in a loud, woozy, fuzz-driven way.
Their new album “Kykeon”, produced by James Aparicio (Spiritualized, Cult Of Dom Keller, Dead Vibrations), is due for release after the summer on cult indie psych label Fuzz Club. First single ‘Clutching the blade’, out last March and coinciding with their SXSW participation, was very well received by psych / shoegaze webzines and beyond.
Since the debut, REV REV REV signature wall-of-sound has inspired rave reviews, with single “Catching a buzz” spinned on BBC6 (Steve Lamacq, Radcliffe and Maconie) and sophomore album ‘Des fleurs magiques bourdonnaient’ praised by influential webzines like Drowned in Sound, Clash Music, Sounds Better with Reverb.
Their live set at Manchester’s Cosmosis Festival, headlined by The Jesus and Mary Chain, Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Raveonettes and WIRE, kick-started a 44-date tour hitting UK, France, Belgium, Austria, Switzerland and Italy, during which the quartet shared the stage with The Telescopes, Ringo Deathstarr and Gonjasufi.
In Italy, the band was ranked among the best live shows by 200 Italian promoters of the KeepOn Live indie network.
Their set at SXSW 2019 impressed, among others, Bob Boilen of All Songs Considered and earned them a feature on NPR’s SXSW wrap-up as well as airplay on the network’s radios.

Their set was tectonic and hypnotic at the same time. Italy loves their phantasmagorical doom bands, and Rev Rev Rev fit the quintessential bill and then some. Drowned in Sound
