Grace Love and the True Loves
Chop Suey Presents
Industrial Revelation formed in 2005 with the collective interest to build a group that would have the ability to express freely outside a specific genre or label, and to play with the utmost passion. D’Vonne Lewis, Ahamefule J. Oluo, Evan Flory-Barnes & Josh Rawlings joined forces with a vision to follow in a similar musical vain of bands like Nirvana, Alice in Chains and Pearl Jam. They wanted to draw upon the power Seattle Grunge seemed to express boldly in the world during its heyday.
From the moment they first performed at spots like Lo-Fi Performance Gallery and Sea Monster Lounge, the group brought their fire to the stage — sending their audiences into an uproar, dropping musical bombs and displaying complete abandonment in the music. In just a short amount of time they went from an emerging Avant-Jazz band to a complete standard breaker that was truly capturing the hearts and minds of listeners from all walks — all genres. Over the next 3 years I.R. would release ‘It Can Only Get Better From Here‘ (a Live CD / Demo containing a single song running 21:44), and record their debut studio album ‘Unreal Reality‘ with start-up emerging indi-jazz label BrokenTime Records featuring local names Owuor Arunga on trumpet (Macklemore / Big World Breaks / Sounders FC Band) and the lovely Seattle Soul singer Choklate (Vitamin D / Jake One / Darrius Willrich / Jumbalaya) on vocals. I.R. also began playing large local rooms such as the Triple Door and pushing the envelop further in Jazz music after being invited to play at the internationally recognized Earshot Jazz Festival in 2006.
This February 2012 IR will embark on 2 regional tours for the first time, as well as release the much anticipated ‘Live at the Eastside‘ album from recordings at the incredible Eastside Club Tavern in Olympia. Before the end of March Industrial Revelation also has plans to record a brand new album of entirely new material.
2012 truly stands to be an unprecedented year for the group. Whether the Mayan calendar had it right and the world ends or not this year – you can count on I.R. to be playing their hearts out regardless…bombs away!
