IMMINENT SONIC DESTRUCTION
Wrap Up First Ever North American Tour!
IMMINENT SONIC DESTRUCTION recently wrapped up their North American tour with Pain of Salvation and Kingcrow It was quite an experience for everyone involved and ISD would like to share their gratitude for those who came out to support them and all the new fans that were made
"So, as we say in ISD, "Here, it's over." The tour is done and we're all back home. What an absolutely amazing experience this has been. We were floored every night by the reception of the incredible fans who came to see Pain of Salvation, but were also eager to soak up all the new music we were bringing them. We made so many new friends along this tour, there's nothing like an open-minded prog/metal crowd to make you feel at home! Also, we want to say a huge THANK YOU to the guys in Pain of Salvation and Kingcrow for pushing us to up our game at every show, and for being such outstanding people. We couldn't have asked for a better group of guys to tour with. Not to mention the tour manager, Brian, who ran himself ragged but kept it all rolling, and Milton at Intromental for having the crazy idea to ask us to join this tour in the first place! It means the world to us, and we're only looking to improve and grow from this point forward! The end of the tour, but if feels like the beginning of a new, better chapter in ISD. THANKS!! \m/(><)\m/"

Sandman-Thanks for the Sex-LIVE at Hideout, Chicago ChiIL Live Shows 4/26/12 (PG13 for content)
As referenced in our interview with Chris and Tony, here's the infamous, "red bathrobe", laugh inducing music video for Thanks For The Sex, shot at Tony's home last summer and "locked in the vault" till now. Sandman hasn't even put it out there on his own sites, but he gave us the thumbs up to run it. You've seen it here at ChiIL Live Shows, folks.Though tame by most standards, this one gets a PG13 for content, though it's more likely to crack you up than incense the censors. We also have a live version of the same song that we shot at Hideout on 4/26/12 above. Enjoy!
Sandman-Thanks for the Sex-music video at Tony's home, Chicago
(PG13 language alert) We dig this slice of Americana--a brand new song from Chris (Sandman) Sand of Roll Out Cowboy documentary fame.
Chris (Sandman) Sand--The Rappin' Cowboy--
performed LIVE at Hideout in Chicago on 4/26/12. His wife and infant
daughter, Stevie, are in Montana. His gigs as a musician and his
truck driver day job take him away from them for stretches, but provide
great material for songs that are simultaneously poignant, funny and all

Grab their latest release, "Chaos of Forms", if you haven't already. Revocation says "It's rippin' metal...about 45 minutes long. There's like 12 songs on it. The cover's got a redish hue. The logo's hard to read on the front. It's pointy too. And no one likes it." Oh yeah.
Biography on iTunes
MA trio Revocation is comprised of vocalist/guitarist David Davidson,
vocalist/bassist Anthony Buda, and drummer Phil Dubois-Coyne — all of
whom showcase incredible dexterity at their chosen instruments, even by
heavy metal standards, and came together as a group in 2005. Armed with a
super-technical thrash/death metal style prizing virtuosity as much as
heaviness and aggression, the group soon began attracting A&R men
from numerous labels with their self-released Summon the Spawn EP (2006)
and Empire of the Obscene album (2008). They eventually decided to sign
with Relapse Records, and delivered their second full-length, Existence
Is Futile, in September 2009, also to very positive reviews. Buy/Download Chaos of Forms and Revocation's past 2 CDs here.
