Revis
Submitted by Johan Wippsson on 2005-08-08
Hey there Justin how are you?
Justin Holman: Im great , How are you?

Its been a pretty long time since we head anything from Revis. Youre still together?
Justin Holman: Not the whole band. Nathaniel Cox and I are definetly in the band for sure. We have talked to David Piribauer, about playing drums. If he is already promised to another project by the time we show case for the next deal we may miss our chance in getting him. We will see,he is an amazing drummer. He is definetly on our mind. We are going to change the line up with the rest of the members. I dont know who. Ill let everyone know when we decide.

But youre not five-piece band anymore since Robert and Davis are in Hensley these days, or?
Justin Holman: Thats true. but David is no longer in Hensley. I think Robert still is though. I dont know

What actually happened with the band? There were some notices that you where demoing with Tommy, then that you quit and then no news at all. Was it just rumours or?
Justin Holman: The band has been through alot of tough times. We got dropped from our label and then we had to get new management. Not to mention all the leagal bullshit we had to go through. We made it though. Alot of it was rumors, Robert and I did start the idea of demoing again as Revis but without Nathaniel it was going to be almost impossible. I decided that I wanted to go back home and get back into the same headspace I was in before we did our first album. Nathaniel and I started hanging out alot and it just happened naturally again. We started writing songs without anyone else and it sounded like REVIS .We are very inspired by the world we live in right now. I hope that what we are writing is what people have been waiting for

Was it harder to keep the band together when all the time on the road etc, compared to when you where unsigned and played on smaller clubs. I mean was the pressure from being on major label something negative for the band?
Justin Holman: Not at all, we got along great! We were brothers and sometimes brothers fight but it was never anything too deep.No pressure at all.

Do you have any contact with the other guys in the band?
Justin Holman: Everyone

Youre not at Sony anymore right? Your album did pretty well there, but that wasnt apparently enough for them. Did you get any good explanation?
Justin Holman: I think it was poor management and the merger between BMG and Sony

Isnt it strange that you have to sell like 1 million to be safe?
Justin Holman: Yes it is sad, but thats planet earth!

I think I read something like a year ago that you where working on album #2 and that you planned to work with some new producer. Dont know his name, but maybe Im totally wrong, or had Sony some plans for you?
Justin Holman: Yes, we did record a second demo with Tony Berg, It had alot of good songs on it,Nathaniel was definetly in a different head space when he wrote them. We may rerecord some of those over again for our second record .

Is being signed to a major a new goal for you or have you changed opinion after been there once?
Justin Holman: I dont know.

Youre currently in the studio with Tommy Henriksen working on 5 new songs. Can you tell us a little about them? Any titles to confirm?
Justin Holman: Yeah!

Theyre freakin amazing songs.
Here are a few of the titles

New Ways

Red Letter Day

Taste in the Flash

Are there any other ones on the way except those five?
Justin Holman: Yes we have about 12to 15 all together that we are sorting through. all new!

When you where in Stockholm you played a really great tune that wasnt on the record. Do you remember which one it was and is there any chance that it ever will be recorded?
Justin Holman: I think that it was Untitled No. Yes there is a chance that it could be on something in the future

The sound on "Places For Breathing" was amazing, very powerful and well produced by Don Gilmore. Would you like to work with him again or do you have any other on top of your list? Think you said Ken Andrews name backstage!
Justin Holman: No we will not be working with Don. or Ken Andrews. I dont know. thats all I can say.



What will happen after you have finished the recording process? Search for a new home for the band?
Justin Holman: If by home you mean label , Yes. We will have to see where the best oppurtunity is at.



Will there be any shows the coming fall or later this year?
Justin Holman: I dont know,maybe in the states.



Thanx Justin for your time and hope to see you in Stockholm again.
Justin Holman: Thank you so much, I cant wait to sing for you again. It will be alot of fun
