Revocation was formed in 2006 by childhood friends Dave Davidson (guitar/vocals), Anthony Buda (bass/vocals), and Phil Dubois-Coyne (drums). The Boston-based trio quickly started gigging throughout New England, and recorded their first demo, the three-track ‘Summon the Spawn’, by years end.
No sooner was ‘Empire…’ released than Relapse Records was calling, and the band was signed in early 2009. By spring the band was studio-ready once again, and entered Damage with Rutcho to record ‘Existence is Futile’, their Relapse debut.
2010 saw Revocation add touring guitarist Dan Gargiuolo, and the newly-expanded band hit the international tour trail hard. Revocation logged miles in Japan supporting Behemoth, Europe supporting Dying Fetus, and the US and Canada playing alongside the likes of the The Black Dahlia Murder, Whitechapel, Misery Index, Veil of Maya, and many more. All in all, the band covered 13 countries with over 150 shows.
