Justice is more than a principle to hard rock legends-in-the-making Rev Theory. It is the sound of amplified thunder and the energy of the stage, harnessed in the studio and captured on an album that makes Rev Theory the standard bearer for rock that blends heaviness with heart.
For proof, check Rev Theory's eight-year history. They have toured relentlessly since Julien Jorgensen, Rich Luzzi, Dave Agoglia and bassist Matt McCloskey formed the group on Long Island in 2002. Between 2005 Truth is Currency and their initial breakthrough 2008 Light It Up ” whose title track became the theme for WrestleMania XXIV and launched Rev Theory's high-profile musical relationship with World Wrestling Entertainment the band spent hundreds of thousands of miles in a van to play roughly 250 dates each year. That trek included opening slots on tours with many of the artist's they respect, which included Avenged Sevenfold, and others.
"What we learned from being close to all those great bands was that we needed to define our identity, to pinpoint the qualities that truly make us Rev Theory," Julien explains. "That meant drawing on their deepest roots, as both musicians and men. We had to be honest about the music that inspires us, from punk rock to classic metal, and grunge to pop," he continues. "Then we needed to discover what we were really passionate about as people, and that is honor, truth, love and respect. Those are the qualities that define each and every one of us." As an album, Justice embodies these values. In Julien's words, "As a band, we have rallied around the belief that with this album our time has come and we are going to grab it."
