    The "Revolution Time" will not be televised.

    ARTISTdirect has teamed up with Love Crushed Velvet to premiere the song "Revolution Time" from Delusions, out September 24.

    Think of it this way. If James Bond was a post-punk, neo new wave musician, this is the type of music he would make. It's got some '80s flair but not in a nostalgic or retro way. It's just an influence. It's pretty smooth, too!

    "Revolution Time' was written during the Arab Spring two years ago," the band told ARTISTdirect. "We were really moved by the images of young people rising up in revolt to fight for things that we take for granted on an everyday basis. Two years later, the same script appears to be unfolding once again in the Middle East. With the current events in Egypt coinciding with the release of our new album, we felt that putting out this song first was an appropriate way to introduce our new material while sending a strong message of support to freedom fighters everywhere — it's Revolution Time!!!"

    Mixed by Mark Needham (Blondie, Fleetwood Mac), Delusions will cement the band's place in the world of dark, melodic rock. If you like H.I.M. or The Killers, trust us. You will crush on Love Crushed Velvet.

    Driven by lead singer/songwriter A.L.X., Love Crushed Velvet show off exceptional emotional and stylistic range in lyric and musicality.



    Are you crushing on Love Crushed Velvet?
