Band to make American TV debut on June 11th in advance of June 12thalbum date
Making a triumphant return to the states after opening for the legendary Jane’s Addiction on their theater tour of the states and a headline run of large European clubs, critically-acclaimed Belgian duo BLACK BOX REVELATION begin their own U.S. on May 12th.  (
Well-known in their native Belgium – where they have headlined festivals with north of 180,000 attendees –  BLACK BOX REVELATION made noise and fans here in the States several months ago as the opener for the Jane’s Addiction theater tour.  The press certainly took notice with the Riverfront Timessaying that BLACK BOX REVELATION “heaved with fervor as rock guitar riffery met John Bonham-like thunder. It’s a tough job to open for such a legendary band, but Black Box Revelation soldiered on, matching perfection with passion.”  Creative Loafing noted, “Black Box Revelation, a heavier, garage-rock version of The Black Keys who played a …set full of furious drumming and plenty of low-end riffs. . . the music … leaned more toward punk than the bluesy base of The Black Keys, offering plenty of howls and Cobain rasp in the vocals.  Where so many opening acts are often dismissed or ignored, it didn’t take long for BBR to win over the crowd.”  And perhaps the most succinctly – Tulsa World proclaimed, “Black Box Revelation, a Belgian garage duo of drummer Dries Van Dijck and guitar-singer Jan Paternoster wowed the crowd.”
The band will release their Alain Johannes-produced (Queens of the Stone Age, Chris Cornell, Them Crooked Vultures) album , My Perception on June 12th, a day after they make their American television debut on The Late Show with David Letterman.
