2001 – 2012 (11 years)
Carbondale, Jackson County, Illinois, United States
Justin Holman (vocals), Robert Davis (guitar), Kevin Haaland (guitar), Brad Smith (bass), and David Piribauer (drums) comprise the infectious post-grunge sounds of Revis. They came together in the late '90s and played local gigs in their native Carbondale, IL, under the Orco moniker. A move to Los Angeles in 2001 gave them a new direction and a name change and motivated them to record a demo. Epic Records was impressed with their tight presentation and inked Revis a deal in 2002. Producer Don Gilmore joined them in the studio for their full-length debut later that summer. The end result was the guitar-laden Places for Breathing. Just as it was ready to hit stores in late May, the city of Carbondale christened May 19, 2003, as "Revis Day" in tribute to their young hometown heroes. The album went on to sell 10,000 copies during its first week of release and debuted at number one on Billboard's Heatseekers chart.
After some touring with popular groups like Evanescence, Fuel, and Cold, Revis scored two rock radio hits, "Caught in the Rain," which was initially featured in the movie Daredevil, and "Seven." Despite the band's rising popularity, Revis announced that they were disbanding in 2005.
In February 2010, Revis announced a reunion and are currently finishing up their second full length album, to be released in the Spring of 2011.
