WHEN THE REVS won the METEOR AWARD the Irish equivalent of a GRAMMY for Best Newcomer in 2002, bassist RORY GALLAGHER accepted the award on behalf of ``all the young bands and songwriters who were struggling to get a break in the Music Industry''.

``This time last year I was sitting at home, watching these awards on TV, just wishing we could achieve that,'' Gallagher said at the time.

``Now . th. th. we are here it is a very moving moment for us.'' Fast forward to just over a year later and things continue to shine brightly for the band.

The Revs are set to embark on a second trip to Australia, kicking off a five-date tour at the NORTHERN STAR HOTEL tonight.

Touted as the next big thing out of Ireland, The Revs formed in 2000 with Gallagher, JOHN McINTYRE and MICKY O'DONNELL. The trio churns out a powerhouse mix of pop and rock which has drawn comparisons with SUPERGRASS, THE WHO, GREEN DAY and SMASHING PUMPKINS. The Revs released their debut album Suck earlier this year, with the track Death of a DJ peaking at number seven on the Irish charts and scoring regular airplay on TRIPLE J. Following The Revs' brief Australian tour the trio will return to the UK to prepare for an extensive tour that will include an appearance at the UK's huge READING and LEEDS festivals in August.

The Revs will be supported tonight by STARKY.
