The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

The Revs went their sep­a­rate ways in 2006 af­ter a lengthy in­nings which saw them un­able to build on their Ir­ish pop­u­lar­ity.

Lead singer Rory Gal­lagher is about to get back in the game with the re­lease of his de­but solo album in Au­gust.

Gal­lagher, who is short­en­ing his name for this project to Rory, to avoid con­fu­sion with an­other Done­gal-born mu­si­cian, has spent the last cou­ple of years since the demise of The Revs liv­ing and work­ing in the Ca­nary Is­lands.

The new album, God Bless The Big Bang, was recorded in Ger­many and will be re­leased on new indie la­bel Buddy Records, on Au­gust 15th. Gal­lagher kicks off a lengthy Ir­ish tour at the Rath­mul­lan Sum­mer­fest in Co Done­gal on Au­gust 3rd. More info at www.ro­ry­mu­sic.org
