I welcome special music guest Flyleaf and Romantic Rebels. I’ll also cover the top movies, this week in Revelator history featuring Red Line Chemistry and much more.
Grab yourself a can of fava beans and nice Chianti! This week’s Revelator is jam packed full of outstanding female fronted rock bands.
The first guest is the band Flyleaf who has been cranking out high energy, well developed rock tracks for over 12 years.
The other is a new up and coming band called Romantic Rebel who will shake things up a bit with their debut album that has gritty, heavy guitar riffs mixed with the deep, personal lyrics and the howls of front woman KT Paige. This week’s Revelator has all you need! Rock, metal, hot chicks and great guitar licks!
Pat Seals joins to me talk about the bands upcoming tour with former guest Adelitas Way. On the show you’ll hear a few cuts off their 4th studio album Between The Stars, released on September 16, 2014 and was produced by Don Gilmore (Linkin Park, Three Days Grace, Avril Lavigne). The lead single “Set Me On Fire" kicks off the interview and closes out with the bands newest single “Thread”.
In addition to debuting in #1 spot on Billboard Top Current Alternative Albums, the album made it on to several charts including #3 Billboard Current Contemporary Christian Albums, #3 Billboard Top Christian/Gospel Albums and #4 Billboard Top Hard Music Albums, among others in the U.S. In Canada, Between The Stars debuted at #39 on Billboard Top 200 Albums, #30 on Billboard Top Current Hard Music Albums and #46 on Billboard Top Current Alternative Albums.
Flyleaf began over a decade ago with their self-titled debut platinum album that included their hit song "All Around Me” which has sold over one million digital downloads. Flyleaf spent 133 weeks in the Billboard Top 200, Top 15 on the Rock Albums & Alternative Albums charts. Its follow-up, Memento Mori, went Top 10 on the Billboard Top 200.
2015 SnoCore Tour will feature headliner Flyleaf, with Adelita's Way confirmed as direct support. Framing Hanley and Fit For Rivals will open the show. The SnoCore Tour first launched close to two decades ago, and from 1996 to 2010 staged annual runs filling a void of minimal touring activity during the winter months. In its first year, SnoCore showcased bands that included Sublime, Less Than Jake, Guttermouth and Shankin' Pickle. Over the years Blink-182, Incubus, Everclear, System of a Down, Seether, Shinedown and Alien Ant Farm amongst others participated in SnoCore. Now, after a brief hiatus, Wind-up Records and TKO are proud to be uniting to bring SnoCore back on to the road.
KT and Alex from Romantic Rebel join me on Revelator to discuss the band’s new album, tour and KT being featured in “Revolver Magazine” as one of the hottest women in rock & metal featured in the January 2015 issue – on newsstands now! We also get into their love for horror films and their work with Brendon Small. Not only will you hear the newest single “Believe” off their debut album. You’ll also hear one of my KT’s favorites off the album “Nothing Left to Say”
Chicago's ROMANTIC REBEL delivers a brand of female fronted hard rock with unparalleled, explosive energy that has been taking the scene by storm. The band released their self-titled album in April 2013 via Pavement Entertainment/Sony RED.
After playing numerous regional shows, the band started touring on a national level, supporting acts such as: All That Remains, Sevendust, Asking Alexandria, Avatar, Crobot, Nonpoint, Otherwise and Like A Storm, in addition to landing a spot on Wisconsin Metalfest and Rock Fest in Cadott, Wisconsin. In the summer of 2014, the band embarked on a four week tour with Bobaflex, as well as a national headlining tour.
Romantic Rebel’s self-titled album was recorded during late 2013 in Los Angeles, CA with renowned producer Ulrich Wild. The album was named REVOLVER Magazine's 'Album of the Week', only days after its release. Their self-titled debut is a modern rock anthem with some throwback vibes blending female vocals with classic overtones, which has given ROMANTIC REBEL an upper hand to the seemingly stale rock scene. A hybrid of modern and classic elements has turned the heads of fans and critics alike.

The week in Revelator History:
This week in Revelator history features Red Line Chemistry from Kansas City. The lead singer Brett joins me on Revelator #44 "Chemistry with Colby" . You’ll hear cuts off their latest album “Tug A War”. The band has been pretty quiet of late and I’m sorry to say it looks like their Facebook and website links are not functional. I took to their Twitter timeline only to find very little info about an upcoming album or EP release until I know more I say enjoy this cut off the Tug A War album called Paralyzed.
Upcoming Revelator guest include Nothing More, Otherwise, Elizabeth Marx, 10 Years and many more yet to be named. Remember to check out Revelator on iTunes. https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/revelatorrevelatorshow.com/id899746191?mt=2..
