Based in Birmingham, England and originally founded in the USA, Revolution Reality Midlands is an inclusive community of people who love music loud, heavy & alternative. We exist for all people but especially the misfits, the broken, the hurting and the outcasts.
We're a community of people with open minds, open hearts and open arms. We accept all people from all walks of life, but the reason we sing, shout, scream, mosh and headbang is because we've found healing, love and hope in Jesus Christ.
Founded by Tommy Green, vocalist of USA Hardcore bands Sleeping Giant and Holy Name, Rev is a place where you can come exactly as you are- no catch, no strings attached. If you’re looking for hope, healing & love, we’ve got it. If you’re looking for a group of people to hang out with, we’ve got you covered. Regardless of the music scene or culture you’re from, whether you have tattoos, piercings or none, whatever your beliefs or opinions, you’re always welcome here.
Welcome to the family. Welcome to The Rev Crew.
Matt & Sarah
Meet Matt & Sarah McKay, the Rev Midlands community leaders! They love to meet new people and create an atmosphere of acceptance, victory & love.
This pair have a passion for music & the people in the metal & hardcore culture. With an understanding that church and heavy metal haven't always had the best of relationships, Matt & Sarah set up Rev Midlands to be a safe space for those who have been hurt by the church and a place for those who feel like misfits to call home.
Vocalist of Meet Your Maker, you'll find Matt jumping around on stage at Rev, screaming with the band... be prepared for those mic grabs!
If Sarah isn't too busy crowd surfing you'll likely find her munching on some pizza or ready to greet you when you arrive!
Beth & Davey
Beth and Davey Burch have been on our core team since Rev began in 2018 and have a calling on their lives to love people through their passion of metal and hardcore.
Davey is the founder of 'JXC', through which he has interviewed bands, promoted shows and published zines based around the alternative Christian music scenes. He has also been in many bands & you’ll find him flailing in the pit and mic grabbing to give Matt a hand on vocals!
Beth loves bringing the breakdowns and reps the girls on guitar in the Rev band. She is also part of the badass mamas club and loves encouraging the kids to join in with the head banging and moshing!
