REVOKER are excited to announce their debut single ‘Stay Down’ will be released on February 27. The song is taken from their forthcoming debut album ‘Revenge For The Ruthless’.
The track has already captured the attention of the British Association of Mixed Martial Arts (BAMMA), who have adopted ‘Stay Down’ as their official theme tune for 2011. ‘Stay Down’ will make its theme debut at the highly anticipated BAMMA 5 event at Manchester’s M.E.N. Arena on February 26 – and the band will be there to witness it!
The video for the track – to be shot in London on February 24 – will star one of BAMMA’s top fighters.
With its fist-pumping refrain and bombastic guitars the song is a veritable brawler, making it a perfect choice for the partnership. “It’s basically about a weekend where we live,” declares Chris Green, lead guitarist. “We’re the odd ones out in South Wales. We’ve got long hair, love heavy rock music, and don’t play rugby. We’re always having to fight back.”
Liam Fisher, Vice President – Business Development, BAMMA said: “I’ve been a huge fan of Roadrunner Records for years. They’ve dominated the rock and metal genre by putting out some of the finest ever bands….. Slipknot, Machine Head, Sepultura, Fear Factory, the list is endless. Partnering with Revoker makes total sense – they’re fresh, British and ballsy, ready to make a very big splash on the industry…… did I just describe Revoker or did I just describe BAMMA?”
