Co-founded by Godsmack drummer Shannon Larkin and guitarist Tony Rombola, and featuring vocalist Ray “Rafer John” Cerbone and bassist Brian Carpenter, the quartet honors blues traditions while etching their stamp on the genre. Larkin offers, “As far as Blues goes, Apocalypse Blues Revue is a little heavier, a little darker, and has some punk rock attitude in the lyrics. We wanted to make something deep that will provoke thought, while showing the world what a phenomenal guitar player Tony is.” Rombola adds, “It’s back to basics. I wanted to be able to go to a gig with no production—just an amp, a pedal board, and a guitar—and play.”
