AARON CARPENTER & THE REVELATORS RELEASE NEW ALBUM ‘PRETTY LIES’

Aaron Carpenter & The Revelators delve into their new-found swamp sound with their grinding and gritty debut album, ‘Pretty Lies’. Recorded in a barn on Waiheke Island with producer Nick Abbott (The Subways, Robert Plant, The Datsuns), the tracks conjurer up a raw rock incarnation of their deep-seated country and blues sound thats part The Bad Seeds, Tom Waits and The Cruel Sea as it is Steve Earle.

From fleeting romance kept secret and the effect of decisions made in the heat of the moment, Pretty Lies is an album that explores the frustrations of love’s fragility and much more.

Aaron Carpenter has a strong history in country and blues music since sneaking into famed Ponsonby venue The Glue Pot and nestling himself on stage with local blues legends like Midge Marsden. It wasn’t until he returned to New Zealand after traveling the world as a vagabond musician that Aaron began exploring his love of music and creating his own material for the first time, leading to the formation of his band The Revelators, made up of drinking buddies and fellow Waiheke Musicians, Derek Solomon, Lee Catlin, Nikki Ngatai and Miles Gillett .

Since their formation, Aaron Carpenter & The Revelators have become an integral part of New Zealand’s steadily growing Americana scene and has seen the band perform at Spark Arena’s Southern Fork Americana Festival alongside names such as Robert Ellis, Hayes Carll and Blind Boy Paxton.
