Scarlet Rebels & Revival Black – LPL
24th January 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Melodic hard rock band Scarlet Rebels were formed from the foundations of Welsh rock band V0iD.
The band have released three official albums under the name of V0iD – Ballads For Beauties And Beasts (2009), Zer0 (2010) and Keep Fighting (2015).
In 2018, singer-songwriter Wayne Doyle, energetic and powerhouse drummer Gary Doyle and harmonic, rhythmic bassist Wayne ‘Pricey’ Esmonde we’re joined by blistering lead guitarist Chris Jones and on second guitar/keyboards, Josh Townshend, who has rock royalty flowing through his veins, being the son of The Who guitarist Simon Townshend and the nephew of rock icon Pete Townshend.
And with the re-energised and re-imagined line-up came a new name – SCARLET REBELS
‘Show Your Colours’ is the debut album by Scarlet Rebel, showcasing an array of songwriting talent, coupled with real sonic weight, making it a stunning record from start to finish, never losing the focus that the song is always served best.
With the expert ears of Tim Hamill (Lemmy, Girlschool, George Michael) controlling the desk, the recording process started with drums and rhythm guitars before then handing over to the rest of the band to put their stamp on the songs.
The outcome was 14 songs of soaring melodies, anthemic choruses, blistering guitars and heavy-duty drums.
Scarlet Rebels prove on this album that songwriting, melodies, guitars, solos, bass and drums won’t ever go out of fashion.
Scarlet Rebels are on the march.
Revival Black (previously known as ‘Black Cat Bones’) are a classic sounding hard rock band, striking out of the cultural heartland that is Liverpool, England.
They are signed to management agency, TMR and plan a sonic incursion on the public with their forthcoming 10-song debut album – STEP IN LINE – released on Friday 11 October 2019.
With their own brand of honest rock n roll, drawing upon the classic sound of the 70’s with a strong foothold in the modern day, Revival Black have firmly planted themselves within `The New Wave of Classic Rock`.
They recently closed the HRH Road Trip festival in Ibiza. Opened up the inaugural Call Of The Wild Festival. Were Top 3 finalists in the Virgin Music ‘Manchester to LA’ competition and now TNT Wrestling have adopted, Hold Me Down, as their official event anthem.
Revival Black’s debut album Step In Line is like the bastard son of Slash & Alter Bridge, British Rock is in safe hands.

This band likes a riff. The new single is ‘Wide Awake’ and you will be when you have heard it.

Bursting out of the speakers are Liverpool’s Revival Black with ‘Wide Awake’. Blistering lead lines plus a catchy riff! Hard Rock gloriousness!
