RVIVR


RVIVR are a punk band from Olympia, Washington that formed in 2008. Their origins lie in the demise of Latterman and Shorebirds, both of which featured Mattie Canino. He formed a new band, along with Erica Freas (guitar/vocals) and drummer Kevin Rainsberry. Bassists in the band are the equivalent of Spinal Tap drummers. RVIVR (pronounced "reviver") have remained active for years, and have a number of EP's and two full-lengths under their belt. Stylistically, they have a lot in common with Latterman. Their chunky rhythm guitars, sharp lead guitars, pumping rhythm section, and catchy songs are still the norm here. However, RVIVR make full use of their two vocalists, which adds an entire other dynamic to their music. Both singers have very distinct voices, which work well either separate or together, and they balance each perfectly. The vocals are a big part of the band, since they write such catchy songs, with some awesome lyrics to back it up. Other comparisons can be made to punk/pop bands around now, including Iron Chic and Spraynard. However, RVIVR certainly stand on their own, by writing great songs and putting on amazing live shows. This band gets a ton of requests, so enjoy.
