“This was the 1st video we filmed for Revolver, and it was a blast! In a lot of ways, filming this video was a dream come true. We spend a lot of time dreaming about what it would’ve been like to have a band in the MTV days, so it only made sense to set the video in that vision. The song itself was heavily influenced by the sounds of the 80’s & we’re so excited to have a video that matches that vibe. We did our absolute best to pay homage to Slash & Guns n’ Roses by recreating (to the best of our ability) the November Rain solo. It was so great to be able to pay homage to those who paved the way for us, & throw ourselves into their image. We really hope you dig it! Keep the Faith.” – FAITH & SCARS

Faith & Scars is an American Rock band. With members hailing from all around the US, (North Carolina, Virginia, and Florida) they are currently based out of Selma, NC. They come at you with a southern flare and a touch of soul. Even through their most difficult times, Faith & Scars has found a way to stick together; bound by their mantra: Keep the Faith.

The band states: “We’ve found that if you hold faith in something, and hold it tight – be it your dreams, family, a significant other, yourself, or God – You’ll find yourself possessing a force that will push you to be the best that you can be.”

Faith & Scars has a profound love for music and finds inspiration through many bands & artists. They proudly wear their 90’s-2000’s rock influence on their sleeves, yet distinctly display classic sounds comparative to Guns n RosesJimi Hendrix, and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Blended all together, you get a sound that can be compared to bands such as ShinedownBon Jovi & Black Stone Cherry.

The band adds, “We just want to be the best we can be, and have a good time doing it. It’s a lot of hard work, and sometimes heartache to keep a band together, but if we can touch someone with a lyric, or affect anyone in a positive way by doing what we do… then we’ve done our job. We aim to put on the best show we can every time we step onto a stage. Whether it’s 2,000 people, or 2 people and the bartender – we play every show like it’s a sold out stadium.”

“We’re finding our way as an independent band. We’re working hard to reinvent ourselves at every step of the way. We believe we have done that with this record. We have full faith in Revolver, and we’re proud to have a product that we can stand behind. Our sights are set & we’re about to take our shot. We just hope you guys enjoy it as much as we do.”

We are Faith & Scars and this is Revolver”.

Keep the Faith

THE OCEAN: Excerpt From The Pelagial DVD Now Playing At Revolver

Revolver Magazine is pleased to reveal an excerpt from THE OCEAN‘s Pelagial DVD. The dramatic DVD, which is being screened as live video projections during the band’s current Pelagialworld tour, is a conceptual movie by Craig Murray, known for his work with Nine Inch Nails, Converge, and others. This movie, which offers up a year’s worth of meticulous shooting, cutting and editing, visualizes the journey into the depths and completes the holistic music and visual art project that defines the Pelagial concept. The film is inundated with spectacular oceanic footage, parts of which THE OCEAN‘s own Robin Staps, an avid scuba diver, filmed himself in Australia. In addition, Pelagialfeatures a female protagonist (who ironically goes by the name of “Arielle” in real life). The girl is seen enduring various stages of fear, lust, terror, pain and joy, as she sinks towards the inscrutable depths of the Hadopelagic zone at the end of the album, and metaphorically, deeper and deeper into the depths of her own psyche.

 

Comments Robin Staps: “The album concept follows two separate but related strains: One is the obvious journey from the surface towards the depths of the sea, crossing the five Pelagial depth zones. The second one is loosely based on Andrey Tarkowsky’s movie Stalker, which is also a journey through zones, but an inward journey, form the surface into the depths of the human psyche, towards the origins of our wishes and desires. This is the central theme that the lyrics of the album are orbiting around. The Pelagial movie takes up themes from and makes reference to both of these conceptual strains, and fuzes them together, in an abstract, artistic way.”

 

The Pelagial DVD comes with a 5:1 Dolby surround mix of the instrumental album and is currently only available along with the special limited edition acrylic box set versions of the album, which were released through the band’s own Pelagic Records, on both CD and 4×10″ vinyl formats, in April. These special acrylic boxes contained the CD digipak or the two vinyl gatefolds respectively; which were “buried” underneath five thick, silk-screen printed acrylic layers colored in different hues of transparent blue, again reflecting the individual pelagic depth zones. The vinyl box sets sold out within nine days in February 2013, by direct preorder only. A second edition, including a repress of the vinyl on three-color split wax, will be made available for preorder shortly, and released in December through Pelagic Records. The CD box sets are still available through http://www.pelagic-records.com/cds

THE OCEAN‘s wildly successful Pelagial full-length was released earlier this year via Metal Blade. Their most profound work to date, Pelagial is a 53-minute exploratory composition written, recorded, mixed and intended to-be-performed-live as one single piece of music. Centered around all five pelagic depth zones, Pelagial purposefully submerges its listeners into an aquatic journey that is at once tranquil and terrifying. Crowned “ambitious and textured” by Terrorizer and “brilliantly written, expertly executed and filled with the kind of songwriting most bands can only dream of,” by CravePelagialentered the Billboard Heatseekers Chart at #10 upon its first week of release and continues to reap critical accolades from fans and critics globally. The OCEAN is currently in the last stages of a three-month world tour promoting Pelagial, which included North America, Taiwan, China, and currently Russia.

Stay tuned for further THE OCEAN missives in the weeks to follow.
