Revocation is a 17-year-old band that has gained the respect and love from the metal community by coming from humble origins in Boston, MA to become one of the most notorious metal acts in the world, at the same time it seems that guitar player/vocalist David Davidson has enjoyed a similar treatment as his fame as one of the most skilled guitar players in metal still raising.
Most recently David Davidson in close collaboration with Jackson Guitars developed and released his first signature guitar, the USA Signature Special Edition Dave Davidson Warrior 7 is the only 7-string in the Warrior Jackson series and it is a faithful copy of the one David plays in Revocation.
But good news are not only coming out from David and his new Jackson artist signature series guitar, Revocation is planned to have a busy 2017, which they kicked off a couple of weeks ago as the band made their debut at the infamous 70000 Tons of Metal, with two kick ass shows while at sea, 70000 Tons was the perfect send off before the band departed for Australia as they are currently on tour with King Parrot and Psycroptic, after that it seems Revocation will be doing a few dates in Canada before embarking on a full US tour with Morbid Angel, Suffocation, and Withered, then they will be going back to Europe for the summer festival season.
During NAMM 2017 we had the chance to speak with David Davidson about his new Jackson Signature Special Edition Dave Davidson Warrior 7 guitar, Revocation‘s latest album Great Is Our Sin, the Australian and North American tour and his thoughts on 70000 Tons of Metal.
