Alpha Rev Releases Bloom This Week, Tour Begins

Alpha Rev’s brand new release Bloom hit streets this week - March 19 (Kirtland Records). Hailed as “emotionally raw…a potent record” (Dallas Morning News)and as “a pick-me-up…empowering and inspirational” (Sun-Sentinel), Bloomhas been climbing the radio charts for several weeks now. The band premiered the video for the album’s first single, “Sing Loud”, at mtvU.com last week. Having recently debuted the new material live during a handful of performances at SXSW, the band now heads out on massive 30+ date spring tour. The complete list of shows is included below.

“[Alpha Rev’s Casey] McPherson is just getting started…on the layered and complex Bloom” (Something Else! Reviews). Recently chosen "Artist Most Likely to Break in 2013” at the tightly curated Sunset Sessions (credited for helping discover artists including Fun., The Zac Brown Band, and The Black Keys, among many others), Alpha Rev has indeed armed themselves with a stunning collection of songs; Bloom delivers a set of personally transformative and redemptive songs - born in the spirit of creative expansion - and a mandate to blossom and grow.

“To bloom implies something beautiful is going to happen, but it’s a process – like all our journeys,” says Alpha Rev singer-songwriter Casey McPherson.

With a glistening rock sound that is at once fragile and tough, Bloom picks up threads from the past while it takes a big bite into the eternal here and now. Drawing from the wellspring of American history, the grandeur of its landscape, and life's sweet and tragic mysteries, Texas-born McPherson leans into his personal challenges as well as the wages of the 21st century and emerges with a triumphant and timeless statement.
