Revival was formed by Anthony Theodorakos and "Jesus" Jon Renner in the Spring of 2005. Both students at Berklee College of Music in Boston MA, they blended their influences of grunge, 90's rock and metal to create a fresh sound.

The sound and energy from their stage show and music amazed audiences when ever and where ever they played. They started playing shows in the surrounding towns of Boston including Framingham, Ashland, Providence RI, Hennicker, NH. In mid-2006 they released "Your Mom" a closet recorded CD.
