Brisbane metal outfit Revoid are still gliding on the high from the announcement of their debut EP ‘Sleepless Still‘ due out Friday April 29, and as a second teaser from the upcoming extended release the band share haunting new single, “Ghost“.
Following on from their latest track “Gloomsayer”, Revoid jump head-first into a place many know all too well. “With its many faces, and unknowable depths, depression turns us into what we hate the most,” explains vocalist Dale Dudeson.
The single debuted with a first play on triple j’s short.fast.loud on Wednesday night and draws comparison to roaming the rooms of a house like a ghost when struggling through emotionally and psychologically trying times, particularly when the torment comes from within those walls.
Teaming up with Mark Williamson of Keywork Audio (Inertia, Closure, Keepsake) to engineer the release as well as welcoming Kris Crummett (Dance Gavin Dance, Hail The Sun, Sleeping With Sirens) to master, Revoid have set a new standard for themselves.
For fans of Architects, Polaris and Wage War, ‘Sleepless Still’ is a glaring, personal insight into modern society, and the coping mechanisms adopted to make it through. To celebrate the debut release, the band have teamed up with Anti Vinyl Vinyl Club to print a handful of exclusive vinyl pressings, on sale now.
“Gloomsayer” leads the way for the EP and came out the gates swinging on release. Soaring to over 23,000 Spotify streams within a couple of weeks and finding its way into triple j Unearthed rotation with a handful of 4.5 star reviews on their artist page, “Gloomsayer” showcases Revoid at their strongest. Wall Of Sound highlighted: “we are on the edge of our seats waiting for what else they have to offer this year”.
Revoid is Dale Dudeson (vocals), Jack Carey (guitar), Josh ‘Krusty’ Gudgeon (guitar) and Nick Watson (drums). After playing in bands respectively since high school, Revoid’s current formation came to be in early 2020. “Cut Me Down” released in November and saw success on triple j Unearthed, Triple M Hard N Heavy, Hysteria Mag, HEAVY Mag, Wall Of Sound and more. The band ended their 2021 playing main support for fellow Brisbanite’s Headwreck on their EP launch December 18, showcasing their energetic new material to a near sold out audience.
