US thrash/tech death metal band Revocation are currently recording their new as-yet-untitled full-length album at Damage Studios in Southbridge, Massachusetts with engineer Pete Rutcho. The follow-up to the band's break-through Relapse debut Existence Is Futile is expected to see its release in summer 2011.

Guitarist/vocalist David Davidson recently checked in from Damage Studios with the following: "We are currently wrapping up the recording process for our third studio album and we firmly believe that this is our strongest material to date. The songs on the new release are incredibly varied and all have the own character. They range from technical thrash to groove laden death metal, there's even a song with a full horn section this time around. We can't wait for people to check it out!"

Additionally, Revocation has recorded a cover of Death's classic "Pull the Plug" track for Decibel Magazine's monthly Flexi Series. Revocation's take on "Pull the Plug" will be included in the March 2011 issue of Decibel, on sale in early February, and is streaming online at this location.

Davidson commented as follows: "We are extremely honored to be a part of the Decibel tribute to Death. Anyone who knows us is well aware that we're huge Death fans and we're very pleased with the way the song came out."

In other news, Revocation has recently announced that they will join legendary technical metal band Atheist for a handful of US tour dates in March. Revocation will also be performing regionally in the northeast surrounding their dates with Atheist. A listing of confirmed tour dates can be found here.

Continues Davidson: "We're also very excited to hit the road with another legendary death metal band, Atheist. Growing up I never thought I'd actually see them play, let alone tour with them. We can't wait to share the stage with them as well as A Life Once Lost and Last Chance To Reason. It's gonna be a killer tour indeed!"

Existence is Futile sure took me awile to get into, but grew on me over time. Hopefully this is good experimentation rather than "we're out of ideas, fuckit it, put s horn in there

the cover is pretty good as well. they managed to keep that good ol' Death sound rather than try to do a more "br00tal" version of it.
