Love & Revenge featuring Damon Kelly to release debut album ‘Karma’ on April 4th
Kivel Records has signed a “new” band by the name of Love & Revenge who will be releasing their debut album Karma on April 4, 2017.
The following message was posted by Kivel Records principal John Kivel via Facebook earlier today (with slight edits):
“Ok folks!!! Some news from the Kivel Records Desk!!!
We’ve always prided ourselves on Quality vs Quantity. There are plenty of other outfits out there to meet that demand. We want to focus on being selective with our bands, product and sound. In order to make sure we can offer the listener the best that Kivel Records has to offer.
With that said, we are happy to offer you something that is NEW to the Kivel family, while at the same time someone from our past. We always try to leave the door open for some of our artists that have moved on to other things. Life has a funny way of working out and sometimes new paths lead to previous destinations.
Now before we announce “who” this is, let me preface this with, music is sometimes about channeling emotion and feelings. Which can range from happy and sad to frustration and anger. All making ingredients for an art that is driven not only by talent, but passion.
So, what better name for a band than wearing two powerful emotions on it’s sleeve. So, we are happy to announce a band that we promise will not disappoint fans of arena guitar driven rock!!
Ladies and Gentleman, I give you…… LOVE & REVENGE.
The new band featuring Singer, Guitarist and Songwriter, Damon Kelly.
The new album KARMA is due April 4th on Kivel Records. Produced and mixed by musical mastermind Vic Rivera who delivered something that is nothing sort of sonic ear candy for the lovers of this genre. Proving once again that his talent as a musician is rivaled by his abilities as a great producer. Which he has left his distinctive sonic fingerprint on this great slab of music.
Of course, when having a meeting of elements such as, songs, band and producer. You need that guitar “hero” to complete the equation. John Lisi is nothing short of that title, and quite deserving we might add. All these ingredients combined = arena guitar driven rock at it’s finest.
Also…please note that anyone that pre ordered this release through Damon Kelly. Kivel Records will be honoring those pre orders on behalf of the band.
We will unveil the artwork later today. Monday expect to hear a song sample. Including pre order details”
