Not only will Boston's thrashy tech-death titans Revocation be part of the Summer Slaughter tour_ which has really become the metal road show_ but also will be busting out new tunes along the way. Revocation guitarist and singer Dave Davidson says the band's fourth full-length album is done and should be ready to ship in time for Summer Slaughter, which so far has Dillinger Escape Plan, Animals as Leaders, Periphery, Norma Jean, Cattle Decapitation, The Ocean, and Aeon. More bands are expected to be added, and dates are forthcoming (last year the Slaughter landed at the Palladium in Worcester).

Even if the follow-up to 2011's "Chaos of Forms" is not available by tour time, Davidson says, "We'll definitely be playing some new material on that tour, can't wait for people to check it out!"

Me too. Hopefully we'll get a shot of the new stuff as well when Revocation plays the kick- off party for the 15th annual New England Metal and Hardcore Festival. That bash happens at the Palladium on April 18 with Acacia Strain, A Life Once Lost, Fit for an Autopsy, and others.
