Onslaught Radio conducted an interview with guitarist Chris Green of the Welsh quartet REVOKER at the U.K. installment of the Sonisphere festival, which is being held July 8-10, 2011 at Knebworth House. You can now watch the chat below.
REVOKER released its debut album, "Revenge For The Ruthless", on May 2 via Roadrunner Records. The CD was completed at Nott-In-Pill and Junkyard studios in Newport with producer Benji Webbe (SKINDRED). A single, "Stay Down", was made available on February 27.
"Stay Down" captured the attention of the British Association of Mixed Martial Arts (BAMMA), which adopted the song as its official theme tune for 2011. The track made its theme debut at the BAMMA 5 event at Manchester's M.E.N. Arena on February 26 and the band was there to witness it. The video for the tune which was shot in London on February 24 stars one of BAMMA's top fighters and can be viewed below.
With its fist-pumping refrain and bombastic guitars, "Stay Down" 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."
