and here's where it ends
and it seems so what it is
for all that it is can never it be this again

slowly we move and circle ourselves
nothing gets through and nobody else
touch me and make this whole

and here's where it ends
and it seems so what it is
for all that it is can never it be this again

stumble and fall but stick to the plan
suffer it all as long as we can
trust me to break this hold

and here's where it ends
and it seems so what it is
for all that it is can never it be this again
so here's where it ends
and it seems so what it is
for all that it is can never it be this again

everything heals in spite of the pain
everything yields to the weight of the strain
but it's so far away

and here's where it ends
and it seems so what it is
for all that it is can never it be this again
so here's where it ends
and it seems so what it is
for all that it is can never it be this again

This Saturday Night, we are releasing our first new record in FOUR years.  So very much went into the making of this, and it's amazing that we finally made it to the end. 

Our CD Release show will be a Halloween bash to end all bashes!  It'll be at our home bar: Even Flow Bar & Grill. 150 E. Main Street in Bay Shore, NY.  We'll be joined by many of our musical brothers & sisters in Craving Strange, Midnight Mob, Jackknife Stilleto, Last Turn of Broadway & Jahsh (and the clique-like posse) while RenegadeRadio runs the whole circus!  It's going to be GLORIOUS!

If you can't join us for the CD Release show, you'll be able to find The Reality Crush everywhere you get music come Monday morning, and you can always get all of your REVEL 9 nonsense at

Thank you for your patience and your support.  We couldn't have done this otherwise.

~DJ, Kaz, Nidal & Tony


The Reality Crush

Definition: The moment when you understand that everything you want may not actually be possible. The moment when your hopes and dreams become prayers and struggles. The moment when you find that what you knew to be true, isn’t.

As children, we can believe in anything. We can be anything. We can do anything. Somewhere along the way, some of us lose pieces of that. And some of us lose quite a bit more. The Reality Crush is a collection of those stories; of times when the weight of the world has won. For many of us, it can be a devastating experience. A true crush. For those of you who have been there, alone and scared on the floor or curled up into a ball, shivering in the corner, surrounded by nothing other than fear and hopelessness, we offer you this; you are not alone and you are not the only one to be right where you are. And it will pass.

If you are like us, let the music be the soundtrack of your life. Let these stories share your world with you. Take from them what you need to, in order to get by whenever you falter.

We write because we have to and we share because we want to.
We thank you all for allowing us into your world and we hope you enjoy what we have for you now.
We are proud to finally release: The Reality Crush

...yes, really.

In the moments when we are truly alone; alone with our insecurities, our passions, and our demons, we are engaged in the very real struggle of facing what we are.
And facing what we are without.
To achieve peace in those moments could quite possibly be the goal of our time here:
To finally know a quiet mind.

From The Reality Crush, this is “Quietmind”

  REVEL 9, Live from Arlene's Grocery in NYC


To all of our immediate and extended REVEL 9 family, whether it's your thing or not, we want to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas, and may the true spirit of this time of year find you well and happy and whole.

For all of modern history the creative among us - the authors, the painters and the musicians - have been so much more likely than the rest to leave us too soon. And with them, invariably, goes that specific light that they bring into our world. And while we mourn the loss of that light, there are times when the dark left behind does far more damage than anything else could ever repair. Once these people have slipped through our fingers they are gone forever. And that is the tragedy.
You’re not alone in this.
Get help.

From the program director at SHEP FM:

...and as the sunny mist of August leaves us we must salute Edisun while they depart, and we all bow to welcome the Real Rock of REVEL 9 as the featured artist for September.

We are very excited to announce that "All I've Become" by REVEL 9 is the new official theme song of The Quinn Spinn!

We will join TQS on next week's One-Year Anniversary Show to introduce the track. After that, it will serve as the opening theme for every piece of Quinn Spinn programming for the foreseeable future.

Thank you so much for the honor, may it serve you well!

Check out the new opening theme here!

Hey Gang,


If it seems like it's been a really long time without a REVEL 9 update, well, you're right.  And that's completely on me.  Truth is, we've been so busy with the releases from the new record, that we just have a chance to sit and reach out to all of you.

That stops now (hopefully).

We're going to be making every effort to keep our core group of fans (that's you) up to date and in the know on all things REVEL 9... and that starts with telling you about the Liberty Music Fest.

This Saturday, Aug 23rd, REVEL 9 returns to Philadelphia and the Liberty Music Festival - a FIVE day music concert and conference being held at Finnigan's Wake, 537 North 3rd St (3rd and Spring Garden) Philadelphia, PA 19123.

We'll be taking the stage sometime in the 8PM hour, and there will be additional performances by Midnight Mob, Steve Haley Band, Stealing Fame, Mile Marker Zero, Satellites Fall, Angel Vilvaldi, In the Presence of Wolves and PLENTY more... so you KNOW it's going to be a great show!

We hope to see a bunch of you there, otherwise, we've got plenty more on the horizon, including our next show with Bobaflex and the release of The Reality Crush.

We'll be back in touch soon, promise!

~dj (kaz, nidal & tony, too)  / REVEL 9

revel in it!

As we have done at countless live performances across the Northeast, we would like to dedicate this song to our service men and women overseas and their families still here at home that try and get through every day without them.  It is through their sacrifices that the rest of us can enjoy our everyday lives. It is because of their sacrifices that we can do any of this at all. It is for their sacrifices that we wrote this song.


It is our pleasure to release to all of you:
