Feedback Revival / Press

“Feedback Revival released their newest self-titled album on January 30th, taking over the High Watt with a cast of friends to rattle some jaws in celebration. The album is 12 tracks thick with the guitar fuzz and heavy bass that the band has become known for. Some of the same faces from the stage lend their talent to the album: Matthew Page of Blackfoot Gypsies and Brian Bandas of The Low Down to name a few. Dan Fenton’s vocals lend satisfactory levels of badassery, and liberties with the English language such as “-she done walk with swagger-“ drive home the fact that things are more interesting a little raw (save for poultry). The same goes for the recording quality, where some tracks max out and sound better and more authentic for it. The band's sound is just to rough and tumble to be contained by conventional means. Rock as it may, it is not an uplifting album. It is run through with themes of bad women, alcohol, misbehavior, suicide, and backlash against one’s origins. It ”

“When Dan Fenton and his bandmates pondered where to pursue rock stardom post-college, they must’ve been at least a little swayed by the home addresses of the Kings of Leon. An added incentive: They’d already forged a connection with a Nashville production team from the Christian rock world. That latter affiliation might explain why the band now known as Feedback Revival seems to have so many more songs that wrestle with the consequences of giving in to temptation than songs that flaunt rock ’n’ roll hedonism. That doesn’t mean they play nice — Fenton’s a raw-throated yowler, and the guitar riffs are industrial strength.”

“Dan Fenton’s shredded voice is the perfect vehicle for Feedback Revival’s songs about Camaros, women who mess up your mind and rock ’n’ roll — don’t forget rock ’n’ roll. A New York native, Fenton began making noise as part of hard-rock band Education of Monkeys. These days Fenton and his quartet live in Nashville, and their music derives from Led Zeppelin, The Red Hot Chili Peppers and other masters of the massive riff. “I Wanna Be Your Man” isn’t the Beatles tune, but Feedback Revival are smart enough to quote the Lennon-McCartney song before roaring ahead. “Money” follows a similar path — it sounds familiar, but the riffs take on a life of their own: “Take your hands out of my pocket / Before you lose them for good,” they sing. These guys make loud, mean rock ’n’ roll, so you might want to take them at their word. ”

“Dan Fenton, originally from New York, started his musical adventure into rock & roll apart of a hard rock band called Education of Monkeys. Since the days of teaching primates how to rock, Fenton journeyed down to Nashville to form the quartet Feeback Revival. Compared to acts that range from Zeppelin to The Chili Peppers with a mix of the White Stripes and The Black Keys, Feedback Revival is without question a proud & loud rock band. Just ask Ed Hurt over at Nashville Scene - "These guys make loud, mean rock ’n’ roll, so you might want to take them at their word." Last week the guys were featured on the Local Lightning Spotlight with both some radio air-time and a section on Lightning 100's website. Hell or High Water is the band's debut LP that was released in January. Thirteen tracks total with titles that conjure up visions of gritty southern angst with a fast and loud style. Not bad for a New Yorker! ”

“No “official” bio here for Tennessee’s own Feedback Revival. All I can tell you is some good southern blues hard rock. Check out hteir latest album on the Bandcamp player below. Fans of The Black Keys, Led Zeppelin, or Maylene and the Sons of Disaster are really going to dig these guys.”

“Their highly anticipated EP, being produced at Dark Horse Recording, will be released this coming fall. They are heavily influenced by classic rock bands such as Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and the recent Red Hot Chili Peppers. Their Southern bluesy rock ‘n roll folkie sound has even led some to relate their music to fellow Nashvillians The Kings of Leon. The response to Feedback Revival's musical talent and high-energy shows has been phenomenal.”

“Feedback Revival is rapidly becoming a match in the proverbial haystack. Home to thousands of aspiring musicians, business men, con men, artists, producers, sinners, and saints; the group settled in Nashville, Tennessee and instantly began writing new music. From a unique blend of rock with classic roots, mixed with northern funk, and southern soul- an absolutely massive wall of sound emerged. This smoldering cloud of rock n’ roll that could only be the concoction of a mad scientist, is led by New York born, Bible belt raised, front-man Dan Fenton..... Grammy award winning audio engineer John Yosh said, “Feedback Revival: a befitting name for a group that takes their styling from the MC5, The Stooges, and God only knows what else… and blends it into their own 21st century schizoid music. Thank God for giving them the guts to do it!””
