Kansas hardcore act REVISIONIST has revealed a video for “Half Moon,” the latest single from the quartet’s upcoming six-song EP, The Emptiness of Gravity.
Adds guitarist Josh Barbee, “‘Half Moon’ just drips vibe. Creating movement with dynamics that just drip rock and roll.”
Founded in Wichita in 2016, REVISIONIST formed with the intent to do one simple thing – write unrelentingly honest music, devoid of any gimmicks. Harkening back to the chaos driven sounds of early 2000s-era hardcore and metal, REVISIONIST pulls no punches and delivers on that promise on The Emptiness of Gravity.
The Emptiness of Gravity was recorded at Rio Grande Studios in Albuquerque with Aaron Gillespie (Underoath, Paramore, The Almost).
“‘The Emptiness of Gravity’ is a pissed off, honest offering, purging emotions built over the past couple years,” Barbee says. “Struggle inspires us and drives us to be more. In a world of processed clones and emotions, it is a brand new scene.”
“Revisionist has always been a band to write the most honest music we could,” says drummer Josh Peavy. “With this EP, we wanted to incorporate some different elements that no one has heard us do before and I think that we did that without sacrificing who we are as a band.”
Featuring former members of The Gentlemen Homicide, Take it Back!, the members of REVISIONIST have amassed well over a decade of cumulative experience prior to setting forth the goal to take music back to a simpler and purer time, when its message equally important. REVISIONIST’s debut album, Culling, was produced by Jeff Sayhoun (Letlive) and released in 2018. The group released three videos from the album: “Culling,” “Lifer” and “Salient.”
REVISIONIST is endorsed by ESP Guitars, Enki Cases and Engl Amps.
