Full Scale Revolution reunite for tour February 2016 + Announce Supports

Ezekiel Ox (Mammal, Over-Reactor, The Nerve) and Jimmy Tee (Helmet, Sleeping Giant) are about to continue what they started in 1998 with FULL SCALE REVOLUTION, after discovering a lost track and are releasing it online for streaming just in time for the “Fuck, Sony” Tour in February 2016.

When the powerhouse ballet dancing front-man and ex-cop riff-maestro met in a Perth beach house two decades ago, they, along with Forrester Savell (Karnivool, Dead Letter Circus, Mark Of Cain) and sibling rhythm section Christopher Frey and Nic Frey formed seminal hard-core freak show Full Scale Deflection, who unleashed their brutal debut album Symptoms Of Chaos in 2000. The band then imploded the week after.

Jimmy and Zeke shed the first skin and emerged musically victorious on the 2003 studio release of their self-titled debut, which was released in the US only, and spawned the live hits “16 Today”, “Party Political” and “Empty Texas”.

This period also nurtured and created the feature length documentary about the project, “Colour, Light Movement, Sound!” made in New York, by independent film maker David Krebelj, which follows the drug fuelled binge of the bands signing to a major label, and recording and releasing their self-titled opus.

After the release of the film, Jimmy and Ezekiel parted ways, Ox festival bound with funk-laden Mammal, and Tee briefly joining groove rock pioneers Helmet as live guitarist.

After holidaying with their wives and children together away from their homes in Los Angeles and Melbourne in 2014, the initial spark was reignited and Ox and Tee decided to play live again.

After consulting with their lawyer, then conferencing between Australia, Europe and the United States, Chris Webb (Sleeping Giant) and Leigh Miller (Vdelli) have been recruited as the fierce and schooled rhythm for this project that defies all monikers. This live show is not to be missed or underestimated.

The only question left is: “DO YOU SEE BLACK ARROWS OR WHITE ARROWS?”
