Jamie Mathias, vocalist with Roadrunner newcomers REVOKER sat down with BBC Wales recently to talk about their recent signing to Roadrunner and to fill them in a little on what to expect from the band…
“Our music is hard-hitting, straight to the point, lots of energy, with great melodies people can sing and chant along to.”, Jamie said of the bands approach to their craft, “It’s a mixture of old school metal and hard rock; it’s music that we want to hear and to hear more of. I don’t think our sound has been heard for a while with the trends in music of late. Bands just seem to follow whatever the new thing is and what everyone’s into at the time instead of striking out on their own. We are just being ourselves and writing music that we believe in and get a kick out of playing live.”
When asked how the band had been able to get their music out to the wider record industry he responded simply:
“Non-stop gigging from day one! We’ve been together now as a band for the last five years and we literally haven’t stopped. From making demo after demo and gigging in every club around South Wales and parts of the UK in front of the sound guy and his three mates. You just work hard to meet people, other bands, get out there, and gradually build your profile – like every other signed and successful band that’s been through it I guess!”
