[press release] †HYMNS† announce DVD, "Revelations" to be released on 22nd August via Big Scary Monsters & Function Records
†HYMNS† is a 2 piece atheist rock band comprising of Samuel Manville and Peter Reisner. †HYMNS† is an interpretation of classical music through the medium of vocals, guitar and drums. Taking inspiration from the classical works of Arvo Pärt, Ludovico Einaudi and Steve Reich fused with the garage rock of Forget Cassettes, Des Ark and Nick Cave.
†Hymns† create a unique, yet timeless sound. Live is where †Hymns† excel, rigging the guitar through two guitar amps and a bass amp. They slip between bold and brittle, brash and delicate with precision and conviction putting most bands of more conventional member numbers to shame.
With their début album set for release in October 2011, the live DVD “Revelations” is a short taster of what to expect.
