about

The follow up to our EP, "The Beating of the Wings", "The Station" expands and cements Revel Hotel's sound. As an album that harkens back to the days of turntable & headphone dedication, we want people to sit down and listen from start to finish. There is a journey to take here and we hope that you enjoy it.

about

Revel Hotel New York, New York

Formed in Spring 2008, Revel Hotel was birthed by several prominent New York musicians. The band shifts in sound and style, drawing inspiration from dark glam rock, venomous post-punk, meandering psychedelic atmospherics, and shameless synth pop.

The band released their debut studio EP, The Beating Of The Wings , in early 2010, followed by a full length LP entitled The Station in fall 2011.

Track Name: Emptiness
EMPTINESS


There's nothing to hold you

Nowhere to run to

Nothing much left to say


There's no one to talk to

No arms to enfold you

No voice to tell you to stay



There's no place to hide you

No way to disguise the fact that you are in this alone

There's no fear just questions

No plan just protection from the things that might lead you astray



Emptiness



There's no one to judge you

Nobody to punish you

No fingers pointed at you


Nothing to cling to

No line to fuse to

No beginning and no end



There's nowhere to hide you

No way to disguise the fact that you are in this alone

There's no fear just questions

No plan just protection from the things that might lead you astray



Emptiness



There's someone who loves you

Somewhere to go to

Someplace beyond your mind


There's something to wish for

Someone to die for

Someplace beyond your mind



Emptiness
Track Name: Phantasm
PHANTASM


Phantasm-She hangs above my bed

pulls off the covers and sees my naked flesh

Phantasm-She hides within my dreams

open my eyes-and I'm breathing heavily



Phantasm--She's walking through the rain

Smiling grotesquely framed in my windowpane 

Phantasm--She takes my breath with hers

Sealing my fate-reborn with eternal kisses



Phantasm--light and shadow move

I knew that you'd return to my darkened room

Phantasm-in the candle dance and sway

In light and shadow play with me 



Phantasm--She's walking through the rain

Smiling grotesquely framed in my windowpane 

Phantasm--She takes my breath with hers

Sealing my fate-reborn with eternal kisses



Phantasm-our night is almost done

embrace my mind for another turn

Phantasm-you're fading in the early light

You slip away through dream time 



Phantasm-You're walking through the rain

Smiling grotesquely framed in my windowpane

Phantasm-You take my breath with yours

Seal my fate-I’m reborn to eternal kisses

Track Name: Evolutionary Men
EVOLUTIONARY MEN


We are different

We are unusual

Individualistic

pragmatic dogs
T
he sum of our parts

Four directions

Outside and in your heads

We're dancing visions 



We are the Alter Boys

We'll hold your hands and walk you down the aisles

We'll drink the sacred blood

And we'll swallow the body whole



Into the future
We throw the past at you

Unlock the ancient secrets

Ring the bells, bells!

We know what moves you

Shakes you to the ground

Inner monotheistic

We'll be your Gods tonight



We are the Alter Boys

We'll hold your hands and walk you down the aisles

We'll drink the sacred blood

And we'll swallow the body whole



We are alien

We know no space or time

Connected

Evolutionary Men

We like the deep end

Of the cosmic pool

Subterranean singing

We're drawing down the moon
Track Name: All I Never Wanted
ALL I NEVER WANTED


Just let it go

Don't pick it up off the floor

Don't take it home leave it alone

Just walk away and let it go



Let it die

Don't save it's life don't even try

say your goodbyes-bury it tonight

And let it die



Soaring to the edge of the sun

I leave behind

All I never wanted



Well it might drown

It can't swim up from underground

It won't grow anymore-it's not allowed

So let it drown without a sound



Watch it burn

Don't lose your turn to win a hand in this round

See what you've learned

Throw a match to the ground-and watch it burn



Soaring to the edge of the sun
I leave behind

All I never wanted



Lest we never forget

Last week I'll never forget
Track Name: The Station
THE STATION


At The Station

Across the hall

I remember

When we depart



At The Station

They call our names

I don't see our friends all gathered here

Where have they gone?



And the World is shrinking every day

Through the viewfinder I see the flames



At The Station

Waiting in line

Flashing lights are everywhere

Don't be afraid



At The Station

We have arrived

We’ve found our way out of there

Together my love



And the World is shrinking every day

Through the viewfinder I see the flames



And the World gets smaller in your eyes

I will follow you forever my love
Track Name: Edge Of Infinity
EDGE OF INFINITY


Pierce the sky

Divide the night

Peer into the eternal chasm


Look over

Above the abyss

The Edge Of Infinity

...Awaits
Track Name: Moongarden
MOONGARDEN


The Moon wept

And the sister cried

The Moon bled

And the sister died



Her flesh

was painted blue and red

The moon leapt

And the sister went
She went home



The garden

Was wet and sweet

With candy

And icicles swinging

She was swinging



The garden

Beneath the sea

The garden

And she was free

She was free

She was free

To go home
Track Name: Flood
FLOOD


Why do I play this game to win?

How much does sympathy cost?

I walk downstairs to the underground

There's no more room at the inn



Too many people

wandered to nowhere

Too many lovers are lost



Too many tears roll down

Black and blue skin

Too many lovers are gone



So many children

No mother or father

Too much blood on our hands



Too many babies

Not enough arms to

Hold all the love in the world



The mirror reflection is not the same

I live beyond this realm

A sea of people drowning in themselves

I swim my way up through the crowd



Too many people

Wandered to nowhere

Too many lovers are lost



Too many tears roll down

Black and blue skin

Too many lovers are gone

Too many bodies

Make all the wrong choices

Too many lives to save



Too many babies

Not enough arms to

Hold all the love in the world



Too many people

Too many bodies

So many children

With no mother or father



Too many tears roll down

Black and blue faces

Too many babies

Not enough arms to

Hold all the love in the world
