London-based band Revolvers are back with their third release this year ‘Rubbing Shoulders With the Devil’ in their classic rock style.

The 60s and 70s rock quartet heavily use their love for Arctic Monkeys on the new single melding together some bluesy guitar riffs. They make no secret of their passion for fusing modern guitar pop which is passionately energetic and pulsating a range of entirely original material.

The track has AM like choruses and Catfish (and the Bottlemen) like riffs that make this the perfect blend of rhythms and vocal harmonies which contain twists and winks.

“The first single, ‘True Love’ is a bittersweet love song with an outro full of hope that we know will be a huge favourite with our fans,” said James Thurling of their first single this year.

Revolvers was formed in 2016 and began carving out a small but growing following playing gigs in and around London.

“It’s actually incredible when you look at the venues we often play. These are places dripping with rock history. Places where Hendrix, The Stones, U2 played all those years ago. They are still very much part of the capital’s Live music circuit” said Rhys Kibble, Revolvers’ drummer. “It’s a real buzz to be stepping onto the same stage as these iconic names.”

With the emergence of other classic rock inspired groups such as America’s Greta Van Fleet and Australia’s Sticky Fingers, it’s quite clear that ‘Rubbing Shoulders With the Devil’ is a stepping stone to bringing back guitar driven music.

The result of the band’s work at core are four new songs (this is the third) to be released during 2019. Each song is quite different from the other but retains Revolvers laser-like commentary on matters of youth culture, politics and art.

The heavier groove coupled with often soaring and anthemic choruses create an entirely original yet accessible sound.

Summary

'Rubbing Shoulders With the Devil' has AM like choruses and Catfish (and the Bottlemen) like riffs that make this the perfect blend of rhythms and vocal harmonies which contain twists and winks.
