In 2010, Canada’s hard-rocking duo the Unravelling released their debut album to critical acclaim; the press dubbed it an “industrial-infused metal masterpiece.” They showed true promise of channeling venerated bands like Tool, NIN, the Dillinger Escape Plan, and others. Then, one year later, they were forced to put their dreams on hold when lead singer Steve Moore fell ill. He spent the next year and a half in surgery and recovery. The future of the Unravelling was, indeed, unraveling.

But, behind the scenes, Moore’s partner in crime, Gustavo De Beauville, was honing his production skills and working on keeping up the momentum and even released some solo work. Then, as Moore recovered, the duo came back together and began to work on their first new tracks in years. One might expect a band that’s been on hiatus to ease themselves back into the game, but not these guys.

Their first single, “Revolt,” is perhaps the most aptly titled comeback song of all time. As Moore says, “The song was the first piece of new material Gus sent me, and it immediately struck me on a very deep level. It seems suitable that we’re releasing it now.”

”The lyrics to ‘Revolt’ convey a rejection of the false and a need for inner change,” says the recovering Moore. “This is an inner revolt that we are talking about.”

Check out “Revolt” from the Unravelling and keep your ear to the ground for their next batch of material. I’m sure it won’t take long.
