Social conscience wrapped in numetal.
IT STARTS WITH
An Endless Passion for Music
For Purpose, for People, for Life...
Having played throughout the province of Alberta testing out songs in the band’s growing repertioire, Revolution Engine set out to capture the energy that had become a hallmark of their live shows. Playing many of Alberta’s great venues (The Starlite Room, Station on Jasper, Shakers Roadhouse, Forge on Whyte, Studio Music Foundation, Bohemia, Bo’s Bar & Stage, The Vat, Distortion, The Blind Beggar Pub) and a number of the festivals, the band set its sights on a raw and visceral feel for this new album: “Fist & Flame”.
Revolution Engine’s sound is driven by fat grooves, grinding riffs, and compelling verse. This alchemy of hard rock, hip-hop, and spoken-word influences, fused with a unifying message on many issues of the day, has produced an arresting experience for everyone that encounters this band.
Many of the tracks on this album serve as clarion calls to the conscience of the listener. The first single, “Business Suit Bonfire”, is a call to not allow the wills of the corporate machines to consume and destroy, while burying their misdeeds. The track features hard hitting riffs, righteous anger, and a call to change.
When asked about a Revolution Engine show, fans consistently site the band’s energy, passion, and sincerity.
The band set out from the start to build a sound around a message of hope and purpose, drawing influence from Rage Against The Machine, P.O.D., Linkin Park, and Papa Roach, but with a twist on the concept of protest music by promoting that the listener rise above rather than against.
WHAT PROMOTERS ARE SAYING
From the standpoint of a music fan, they put on such an incredibly high energy show! I was immediately a fan and will be following this band’s growth wherever they may go. From the business end, I highly recommend working with these guys. They bust their ass behind the scenes to ensure the success of the venue and are insanely easy and fair to work with. 11/10 on behalf of both myself and Station on Jasper.

Revolution Engine is a shining example of a hard working band who knows what it takes to build a brand.
These guys not only have a message, they have a great sound, great stage show, and are all around great people.
It’s impressive to see how hard they hustle to gather friends, family, and fans around a unifying message.
It blows my mind to see them on the street selling the last of their tickets to people walking by the venue even when the venue is filling up from their pre sales.
