Alpha Rev at SXSW

Alpha Rev will be in their hometown of Austin, Texas for the SXSW Music Conference, and will hang around the week after - when the band releases their third album, Bloom (March 19/Kirtland Records). Details on all their upcoming Austin plays are included below.

Bloom’s first single - “Sing Loud” (listen here) - currently has them at #5 on the radio charts and still climbing. The band was 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).

Indeed, Alpha Rev has 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.
