Colour Revolt Debut

(PR) Oxford, MS gloominaries Colour Revolt are extremely excited for the release of their long-awaited full-length debut, Plunder, Beg, and Curse on new label home, Fat Possum on April 1st. For this album, the band has collaborated once more with producer and friend Clay Jones (Modest Mouse, Elvis Costello) at Sweet Tea Recording studio in Oxford. Plunder is the followup to the band's self-titled EP, released by local label Esperanza Plantation, with a re-release by Tiny Evil, an imprint of Interscope (Nine Black Alps, Jimmy Eat World) in October, 2006.

Colour Revolt's name is derived from Edwin Abbott's 19th century social commentary, Flatland, an exploration of life in two dimensions. But Colour Revolt is far from two-dimensional, eschewing Fletchers familiar sonic assault of unorthodox song structures and time signatures for a more melancholic though equally guitar-driven aesthetic of the post-grunge Southern gothic. The band's thematic impulse reflects the literary heritage of their native Oxford, Miss., channeling the jagged emotionality and moral ambiguity of the locales forefathers, William Faulkner and Barry Hannah.

Colour Revolt has toured with Dinosaur Jr., Brand New, Black Lips, Okkervil River, Menomena, Explosions In the Sky, Malajube, and Manchester Orchestra among others and will be performing at several showcases at SXSW before heading out on the road again in 2008.
