Liverpool’s Revival Black, are delighted to announce their new single – ‘Wide Awake‘, released on Sat 20 April 2019.
‘Wide Awake‘ will be available worldwide, across all digital download and streaming services. It’s accompanied by a full promo video.
Following the addition of vocal powerhouse, Dan Byrne, the band were revitalised and re-imagined, bringing a whole new attitude and drive that warranted a new name and fresh identity. Previously known as Black Cat Bones, Wide Awake is just the second single to be released under their new name of Revival Black.
Guitarist, (Alan) Rimmer, explains, “Having Dan join us has just taken us to another level. I mean, just listen to his vocals on Wide Awake and you will hear why we wanted him to join us. It’s insane. One night we were road-testing the song and Dan got caught up in the moment and just let loose on the lead vocal melody several octaves higher than written, creating what is now the standout vocal from the album.”
He went on, “We toyed with pace of this song as it has a real country rock vibe to it. The riff you hear in the chorus was intended to be the main song riff but we worked with it and found that the stabbing rhythm worked better across the verses and the pedalling guitar melody should underpin the chorus.
“Tying that all together was a joy, just two or three live run-throughs in the studio for the musical backing and then we let Dan do his thing. It’s one helluva rock anthem, a real fists-pumping-in-the-air moment. It’s our STATEMENT song that says who we are.”

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 have recently signed to leading management agency, TMR and plan a sonic incursion on the public with their forthcoming 10-song debut album, dated for release later in 2019.
Having toured around the UK with Marco Mendoza (The Dead Daisies) the band have already established a strong following. 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 phenomenon, known as `The New Wave of Classic Rock`.
A Revival is coming.
