"The Best of Long Island & Queens - The Top 30"

Good Times Magazine & ReverbNation's Top 30 Music acts to follow in 2016 from Long Island & Queens. "Audio Revival (Rock), Astoria: A hint of folk, the words are a story to be told. The guitars and bass are steady as a rock, offering hooks and warmth" - Good Times Magazine


Audio Revival joins the Camplified tour for the first time this year, and we’re lucky to have them! This rock band came together in early 2012 in New York City. Influenced by greats such as Muse, The Black Keys and Foo Fighters, they seek to uphold the rock institution and note that, “Audio Revival’s sound is founded on the plethora of influences engrained in them by the music of their formative years and parents’ record collections. Through various styles, they leave no stone unturned in their quest to deliver something identifiable yet unparalleled.” - Camplified

"Music Submisson Monday with Audio Revival"

Thanks for sending all the music and keep it coming (except for EDM, please)! I found another gem amongst all those music for my irregular series “Music Submission Monday” where I feature my favourite song of an unsigned artist the submit their music. This time it’s from NYC Rockband Audio Revival.

The four piece consist of Jake Flaherty (Vocals), Ben DeFusco (Guitar, Vocals), Chad Flaherty (Bass) and Steve Purcell (Drums). They are making music together since 2012. When I first listened to “1095” I found the beginning and end quite irritation but the more I listened to more I was wondering why I was irritated at all. It gives the whole song a bit of “epicness”. Their musical influences are rather obvious: Foo Fighters, Led Zeppelin, Black Keys, Muse, Stone Temple Pilots.

Even though the band is not religious they refer to a rather religious event with this song. “The year 1095 refers to November 27th 1095 when Pope Urban II launched the First Crusade to "recapture the Holy Land”. The song is basically a plea to end all violent extremism", as singer Jake Flaherty explained to me. “The song was inspired by the tragic events of the Boston Marathon bombing that occurred last year.” - Heilewelt

"INTRODUCING - Audio Revival - 1095"

Great alt rock band from Astoria, NY. The band was founded in 2012 and they have a clear influence by Muse, The Black Keys or Foo Fighters. It is not easy, I guess, to be a remarkable band when playing on this genre, but Audio Revival have a solid base and they could make great things. - Jungle Indie Rock

We are all animals, but the quartet of musicians that form power rock outfit Audio Revival are a breed apart. With 'Animals,’ the band’s debut EP (Released September 1, 2016), Audio Revival has sharpened a distinct musical voice that combines angular, musical technicality with the rollicking, raw intensity of singer Jake Flaherty’s primordial vocals. Through various styles, they leave no stone unturned in their quest to deliver something identifiable yet unparalleled.

Formed in New York City in late 2012, Audio Revival is an unlikely collection of stoners, band geeks and one former All-American linebacker for the Syracuse Orange football team. With the help of three-time Grammy award-winning producer Dave Clauss (Shakira, Marin Morris, Justin Bieber, U2, Paul Simon), Audio Revival released a series of singles in 2015, to critical fanfare and spent much of the year playing shows across the Northeast.

‘Animals’, which was just nominated for the 15th Annual Independent Music Awards (Rock EP), marks another collaboration with Clauss, finding the band more at home in its sound. “I’ll Be Here,” the album’s first single, is friendly and fun while never straying from Audio’s Revival high-energy rock roots. The title track pays homage to the wild howler monkey that lives deep inside us all. The EP debuted on the CMJ Radio 200 Chart, quickly gaining support of over 100 stations across North America (list of stations below).

Audio Revival is on tour, starting with their EP release show at the historic Arlene’s Grocery in New York City. Visit to hear the latest tracks, check tour dates and sign up for the band’s mailing list.
