Backline Revival

 London, Ontario, CAN

Backline Revival takes classic styles of music and gives them a street level Hard Rock Edge.

Biography

From the ashes of the burnt down and out London Ontario Rock scene rises the soulful and dynamic sound of Backline Revival. Combining a handful of styles with hard edge guitars and sinful rhythms this animated 5 piece entertains and engages audiences of all ages. Offering a wide range of shows with 2 sets of soulful rock originals and classic covers or for a more intimate venue or modest budget we also offer an acoustic set, perfect for private parties or coffee house settings.
Though this group hails from many different hometowns, they all met in London, Ontario the home of bassist Rmoney. Both from Northern Ontario, rhythm guitarist, Chuck Rocks of Dryden and drummer, A.J. of Kenora made their way south to London where they attended O.I.A.R.T. with lead guitarist and friend of Rmoney, Houndog Houle of St. Thomas. Not quite complete, the band began auditioning for a front woman and recording tracks for their debut album tentatively named ‘For the Love of it…’ However before recording was complete a star was found in the fresh new energetic front woman Nikki James of St.Thomas, Ontario.
Although Backline Revival has only been performing for a few short months, the sound and presentation of the band would indicate otherwise. Influenced by a broad spectrum of classic to modern Rock, Pop and Blues, they achieve a timeless quality in their songs while maintaining a fresh modern feel with catchy, sensibly written songs.
Having won over crowds of up to 300+ people, new fans await the release of their debut independent album.

P.S.
We’ll Rock Your Face!!

Lyrics

Soiled

Written By: N. Houle / C. Puddy

Soiled
VI

Got it all worked out
Need a change in direction
Without this change you can feel the same as I do
I knew my new route
Had a shift in direction
My sincerest acknowledgments to you
Pre-Chorus
Hold on to these moments
Before they slip away
Take another drink to ignore the pain
Hold on to these moments
Before they slip away
Take another drink and ignore your fate
Chorus 1
Like a stain I can’t get rid of
Every time I try to wash away
But no matter what, it still remains
And it’s growing bigger everyday
Pull the pin, press the trigger
There’s a thousand ways to end your life
And if suicide’s your only answer
Than you’re probably better off to die

V2
Can’t find my way out
It’s just a trick, a deception
If you’re playing games than your life’s in chains and mine too
There’s no new way out, a tricks a trick an invention.
My sincerest acknowledgments to you

Pre-Chorus
Hold on to these moments
Before they slip away
Take another drink to ignore the pain
Hold on to these moments
Before they slip away
Take another drink and ignore your fate

Chorus 2
Hissy fit with a pistol
Bring yourself to make the sacrifice
Cuz if you choose to make foolish decisions
You never really thought of thinking twice
Chorus 2 Con’t
Go ahead, I’d like to see it
I don’t think you’ve got the guts
And as long as you don’t make a mess
You’re free to do whatever you want
