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: Purify
Smoke and mirrors
Peel off the veil
Tear down the wall
Before you all fall down...down

Meat off the bone
Flesh of the soul
Come out of your house
See who's not around anymore...now

Don't follow me
Don't rescue me
Don't wipe my tears
Don't cry my dear
Walk away
Don't stay with me
The devil may care
But not today
Purify
Our actions in fire
The Ashes glow
And we get thrown

Wrecking ball
Breaking through the ground
The future has arrived
Just in the nick of time...yeah

When lightning strikes
And sometimes twice
You feel the burn more
Leave your old skin behind...close the door

Don't follow me
Don't rescue me
Don't wipe my tears
Don't cry my dear
Walk away
Don't stay with me
The devil may care
But not today
Purify
Our actions in fire
The ashes glow
And we get thrown

--into the wind
--into the sea
--into the fire...alive again

--into the wind
--into the sea
--into the fire
--Purify
--Purify again
--Purify again
--Purify again
Track Name: 1,000 Dreams
To the beat of a hundred drums
Believe in a thousand things
To the beat of a hundred drums
A sky of prayers that falls on me

Who is your God
Don't pray to me
Or the "prophet" on TV
Who will save you
From yourself
Your faith in faith
And nothing else, if nothing else

To the din of a million schemes
The beat of angel wings
To the cry of a billion screams
I will sing--yes I will sing

Prove to me
Why you believe
I know there's something that we can't see
It's what we feel
And what we dream
It's in our minds...
1000 dreams

To the street paved with golden dreams
The Virgin's children leave
In the heat of the desert mosque
The hiss of the war machines...ssssssst

Prove to me
Why you believe
I know there's something that we can't see
It's what we feel
And what we dream
It's in our minds...
1000 dreams...believe in me 1000 dreams
It's what we feel not what we see
1000 dreams believe in me
it's what what we see not what we feel
It's in our hearts, it's in our minds
1000 dreams believe in me
Believe in me
Believe in me!
Track Name: Terminission
We-we signed our leases
Bought our coffins
For the end
And we-we dug our own graves
Made our own beds
To lie in

We talk in riddles
We worship false idols
And single out the weak
We shoot black smoke in the sky
Numb ourselves by getting high
And turn the other cheek

We-we filed our papers
Prayed to Jesus
Save our skin
And we-we gave the children
All the problems
To deal with

Terminission
If we terminate the mission
We can save our skin
Terminission
If we terminate the mission
We can save our skin
...Our skin

We-we signed our leases
Bought our coffins
For the end
And we-we dug our own graves
Made our own beds
To lie in

Terminission
If we terminate the mission
We can save our skin
Terminission
If we terminate the mission
We can save our skin...
...Our skin
...Our skin
...Skin
Track Name: Dark Naked
Dark Naked by a fireplace
By a roaring hearth
--fire and ice

Dark Woods by a trickling stream
By a starving deer
--blood and water

Crouched and Naked by a soft-lit lamp
With a hand outstretched
And a glimmer of hope
Just a glimmer of hope

The sound of a newborn's scream
Back from a trip to pain
...Pain

Dark Naked by your own accord
By an open door
--Bitter and cold

Stark Naked in a hole somewhere
Deep in a core
--No one can hear

Buck Naked by a burning house
Where fear is a taste
You can smell the decay
Can you smell the decay?...

The sound of a newborn's scream
Back from a trip to pain
...Pain
Sex and Death lie alone by yourself
The roses the thorns the lies
--The lies
--The cries
--The lies
--The cries
Sex and Death, sex and Death
Death and Life, death and life
Track Name: Before I Disappear
I need some help
I've fallen overboard
Reach for me
Before I disappear...Before I disappear

Stand in for me
I need a rest now
The party's over
Before I said my goodbye's...Before I said my good bye

The Fall is long
How far I've traveled
Wish for me
Before I disappear...Before I disappear

They tried to hold me down
But I have broken free
I slipped out through the handcuffs
Shackled inside of me
The chains have been undone
The doors have opened wide
I'm splashing through the darkness
I'm walking to the lights

And it leads me home to you
It leads me home to you
Takes me all the way to Heaven\
And it leads me to your arms
one more time
--(Repeats over and over til fade end)
