Label Obscura To Reissue Basement Revolver’s Self-Titled Debut EP In Limited Vinyl Run

February 27, 2018 in news

The heralded atmospheric work will be available for the first time on vinyl on Feb 27th. Formed in the honest grit of Hamilton, ON, the band has seen a quick and notable ascent into the spotlight with their unique brand of 90’s infused indie-rock. Basement Revolver has been able to formulate a captivating and refined hypnotic aural experience typically found with those who are well beyond their years. Rarely captured in first works, the band exhibits this maturity and ensures promising future releases.

Before the release of their debut, Basement Revolver was already opening for accomplished acts such as Dave Monks (Tokyo Police Club) and others. Sensing something special between the band, six months into the project they seized the opportunity to record with local studio, TAPE (Memoryhouse, The Dirty Nil, Single Mothers). Together with Adam Bentley and Jordan Mitchell they began to sculpt and carve out their signature atmospheric sound. Gaining momentum, they soon decided on releasing their debut single, “Johnny”, which encountered an unstoppable wave of support with grassroots endorsements from sites such as The FADER, DIY, Indie Shuffle, CBC, Exclaim! Magazine, and numerous others.

Basement Revolver’s self-titled debut proved to be a success eventually being released via Memphis Industries’ UK sub-label Fear Of Missing Out. The band continued this momentum with the release of their follow up EP Agatha in 2017 which received overwhelming support from fans and critics both old and new. Grab a copy over here.
