Making music is personal and the writer’s own personal experiences are often the subject that come out through the lyrics. It’s no secret that frontman, Poffe Roxx has struggled with addiction over the years. He started writing this song during his addiction battle while he was in a downward spiral. Life was out of control, the addiction consumed every part of his life and today the experience is the muse that inspired the song.
Poffe Roxx has this to say about the single: “When I first wrote it, I was in my drug-using days, which I can tell when I read them today. It was all about having fun, but deep down inside I knew I was skidding out of control. I just chose to ignore it”.
The band doesn’t shy away from this topic. There has been a major shift over the years in how the music community looks at addiction and what was once glorified has now shifted to many artists getting healthy and being able to be open with their fans on their journey to sobriety. Today Poffe Roxx celebrates 10 years of sobriety and has a new outlook on life. He continues to put passion in the music along with his bandmates who are also close friends and who’ve been a part of his sobriety journey.
Revolverlution are still writing and recording the rest of their debut album which has been pushed back to a release date in early 2021. Look for the band to be out on tour as soon as gigs start back up!
The band recorded the new single in drummer Micke Rosengren’s studio, Loud Drums Studio. It was mixed and mastered by Anders “Theo” Theander at RoastingHouse Music in Malmö, Sweden.

With their years of combined experience, Poffe, Filip and Micke where hungry to write something together and out of that desire Revolverlution was born. It is personal, powerful and a revolt to any who dare try to tame their hunger to make music that they want to make.
With the mix of glam, modern and hard rock bands they have played in over the years; Dirty Passion, Sinthia Doll, Damien, Royal Acid Orchestra and Bai Bang plus their personal musical influences, they were ready to do things their own way without holding back.
Experiences they’ve had on stage with past bands have led to performances at festival gigs such as Wacken Open Air, Rocklahoma, Hard Rock Hell as well as tours throughout Sweden, UK, Europe, Russia and other gigs that led them to Canada and the USA.
The band released their first single, ‘Going Out With a Bang’ in February 2020 and followed it with their second single ‘Set the Night on Fire’ in June 2020. What will follow remains to be seen, but it’s going to be a great ride!
