Black Box Revelation announce the release of their Alain Johnannes-produced LP, My Perception on June 12, the day after they make their American television debut on the Late Show with David Letterman.
Making a triumphant return to the States after bringing their scuzzy guitars, crashing drums, unabashed energy and depth of soul collision on tour with the Meat Puppets, Beady Eye, Girl in A Coma and Jane's Addiction in the last year, Black Box Revelation return this month for a run of headlining dates, dates with the Darkness and a set at Bonnaroo!
For a preview of what to expect from Black Box Revelation, get a peak behind the scenes of the recording of the title track on My Perception.
Combining Beatles-meets-Kinks British invasion pop with haunting melodies, pounding blues, thick ambience and driving beats, Black Box Revelation plot their foreign invasion and continue blazing across the US.
For a preview of their incendiary live performances, give a listen to live versions of tracks from their first US-released music on the Shiver of Joy EP, "High On A Wire," "Shiver of Joy" and "Sealed With Thorns" performed on MPR.

Press Praise for Black Box Revelation:
"Every so often they strip the music down to something slow and bluesy. But the Black Box Revelation isn’t purely retro. They are just as happy with a drum-machine beat and a heap of overdubbed percussion, as long as the music makes its happy, trashy crash." - New York Times
"A sinister slice of buzzing guitar noise concealing a beautiful pop melody beneath." - Playboy
"It’s a record that makes you want to throw on your leather vest and go boozin’ til the break of dawn." - Six Degrees, 4 stars
