Rev Theory Explain Their ‘Enemy Within’ — Exclusive Video
To say that the last six months have been hectic for Rev Theory would definitely be an understatement. The high-octane rockers not only wrote and recorded ‘Justice,’ their second album for Interscope Records, they also kicked off a headlining stint on the inaugural Monster Energy Outbreak Tour — which also features Pop Evil, Hail the Villain and others. ‘Justice’ hit stores today, and Noisecreep got our hands on an exclusive behind-the-scenes video filmed during the making of the album.
In the clip, bassist Matt McCloskey and guitarist Rikki Lixx tell us how to they came to write the scorching track ‘Enemy Within.’ Explaining the song’s lyrics, McCloskey offers, “We all have dark forces that live within ourselves. You try to live the best you can and try and be a good person. But at the same time, [you] really live it up and experience everything that life has to give you.”
Produced by Terry Date (Pantera, Deftones), ‘Justice’ features more of the hook-driven hard rock that Rev Theory are known for. Songs like its title track and ‘Hangman’ shouldn’t have a tough time finding their way onto active rock radio in 2011.
