The Revellions

The Revellions are a garage-based rock and roll band formed in 2006 in Dublin, Ireland. In 2008 the band released their eponymous debut album on Dirty Water Records.[1] The album was recorded at Circo Perotti studios in Gijon, Spain. The album received widespread critical acclaim throughout the world leading to extensive touring and festival work throughout Europe during in 2009.

The Revellions have enjoyed extensive magazine and radio coverage including an invite over to London's BBC Maida Vale studio to record a live session with television and radio personality Mark Lamarr;[2] which and aired July 2008 on BBC 2 show God's Jukebox. They have subsequently been featured regularly by him on his Radio 2 show.

Their debut album featured at number 7 on US DJ Bill Kelly's best albums for 2009.

Later on the band released in 2014 their second and long awaited album on Dirty Water Records called Give it Time; after 6 years the long wait saw its end and they released the album playing it live along Ireland and abroad, recorded locally in Dublin in James's studio.

After 2 and a half years of total silence, but fronted by Dublin rock and roll veteran James Lister, over the years members have come and gone. And after the departure of two core members the band's line-up now has a multicultural magic touch added to these garage surf psychedelic tunes (Irish, Estonian and Spanish) taking the band to the next level after two well known garage sound albums called The Revellions and Give it Time, that were presented along several tours in Germany, France, United Kingdom and Norway.

The band is now working on the recording of their 3rd album with the sound of garage influenced rock and roll and with a side order of surf guitar with that psychedelic touch that the band has always created with their tunes to be presented on vinyl and cd next year (single to come later on this year), and already being presented in the core of the garage clubs of Dublin.
