The Reverence is a Brighton-based rock band that formed in September 2008. They have recorded an EP and an album, made a music video, played several live shows to an already dedicated fan base across the South East (including support for James McCartney) and recently had some radio play which has invoked positive responses from DJs and listeners. They released debut single My Town on 15th February 2010, for which they collaborated with short-film director, Liam Creighton, to make a music video to accompany it. The video is available to view on www.thereverence.co.uk and the song is in all good mp3 download stores. Debut mini-album Monument was released on 29th March 2010 and can be purchased from http://thereverence.bigcartel.com/
The influences in the band range from post-punk (Joy Division, Queens Of The Stone Age) to anthemic indie (Interpol, Editors) to epic Brit-rock (Radiohead, Elbow) to alternative/modern Americana (REM, The National). When listening to their music you can also hear touches of 80s electronica, 21st century indie-dance and out-and-out punk-rock. But The Reverence don’t set out to reproduce anyone else’s music; their music is entirely their own and transcends genres. They prefer the idea of setting trends, not copying them.
The members of The Reverence write about the dark things in life that affect everyone – fears, frustration, worry, anger, loneliness and uncertainty. But they write to make things better, not to depress. Their songs are filled with hope and are brightened by a light at the end of the tunnel. Their energetic live shows aim to bring people together, excite them, help them forget their worries and enjoy themselves. They are excited about the music they write and play and at the potential they have to be a truly great band.

Um.. at one gig my synth stand kept breaking and it ended up falling on my feet so I kicked it off the stage. It\'s expensive...
Lots of energy and passion and bizarre guitar noises every now and then.
Yep! Just the once. Didn\'t really enjoy it to be honest.
We are loud. We are energetic. We are different. We are anthemic. We are (sometimes) drunk.
...not be sitting in the office I am in right now.
Not sure about this one.
Through extensive deliberation . . . over many months . . .
Ideally . . . some people to share the experience with!
Friends and friends of friends.
I would like to say world domination, so I will - \"WORLD DOMINATION\".
We have got so much better in every way and still are. We are always excited about new stuff that we come up with as it is always an improvement.
No and... no.
Currently we have, on our non-existent rider, beer, biscuits, DVDs, 100 guitars, groupies.
We don\'t try and be like any other bands. We intend for our influences to run naturally through our music rather sounding like imitation.
