Formed in late 2009, The Electric Revival, consisting of three longtime friends, hit the ground running with the release of guitarist Ian Dillon's independent E.P. With the inclusion of longtime friends Dallas Lobb on drums, and Dan Toews on bass, the group began playing local Calgary gigs until enough material had been created to release the full length album Presenting: The Electric Revival in 2012. Due to demand, the group kept fans entertained by releasing a new single every week for 13 weeks in the summer of 2012. Following this ambitious undertaking, The Electric Revival released its second full length album Pirate Radio in the summer of 2013 and then a follow up E.P. 5 Songs by the Electric Revival later that same year. As a result of these albums, The Electric Revival was picked up by Cruzar Media to aid in the distribution of the band's current catalog.
With the bands ability to create and perform material that appeals to a wide audience, Ian Dillon's ingenuity of his theremin guitar solos, and musical experience of the members, The Electric Revival has seen an increase in its fan base. The group's first North American tour was well received in 2013, which only fueled the band's desire to consistently provide listeners with quality material and an unforgettable performance.
