American denim brand Lee supports The Revival Tour while making its first steps to Europe this fall. Initiated by Chuck Ragan in 2008, guitarist and vocalist of punk act Hot Water Music, the tour brings together some of the hottest names in rock music, performing acoustically in intimate club venues.

After the growing success in the last years and the tour’s first international run to Australia in 2010, this year the tour will hit the UK and venture all over Europe. Brian Fallon from Gaslight Anthem, Dave Hause from Loved Ones and Dan Andriano from the Alkaline Trio will join Ragan, all accompanying each other throughout the event, and opening and closing each show together with Jon Gaunt on the fiddle and Joe Ginsberg on the upright bass.

“There’s no hierarchy; it’s about sharing music together and bringing it to people in an extremely honest and grassroots fashion,” explains Ragan. “We are going to do everything in our power to keep this tour going for years to come because we believe in the music; we put our hearts, souls and energy into it and the ethics we live by aren’t going anywhere.”
