Brooklyn, New York’s The Reveling finds itself gearing up for a virtual takeover of the Sirius XM Radio air waves this week. The band will tackle guest DJs duties, partake in interviews and even crank out a few live and recorded songs on shows such as E Street Radio, Liquid Metal, Faction’s DIY Sunday and “Kick Out The Jams” with Dave Marsh.
Featuring drummer Jay Weinberg – son of Max Weinberg, long time drummer for Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band, as well as bandleader for The Tonight Show With Conan O’Brien – the punk rock quartet’s latest four-song offering, 3D Radio, will see an official street date of December 1st. However, The Reveling will be playing an early release show this Friday (11/06) at the Knitting Factory in NYC with A Wilhelm Scream, Living With Lions and The Riot Before. As an added bonus, anyone who arrives at the show before the band’s 8pm set will receive a free copy of the record.
At its core, 3D Radio is a driving, brash take on mid-90’s melodic hardcore and punk, melded with the urgency of today’s post-hardcore sound. But the songs also touch on elements of roots, soul and good old blue-collar rock ‘n’ roll. There’s an unmistakable swing and bounce to it, embracing Americana-tinged spirit of forefathers like Social Distortion while incorporating rock ‘n’ roll elements from punk contemporaries like The Gaslight Anthem or The Loved Ones.
