The Revs went their separate ways in 2006 after a lengthy innings which saw them unable to build on their Irish popularity.

Lead singer Rory Gallagher is about to get back in the game with the release of his debut solo album in August.

Gallagher, who is shortening his name for this project to Rory, to avoid confusion with another Donegal-born musician, has spent the last couple of years since the demise of The Revs living and working in the Canary Islands.

The new album, God Bless The Big Bang, was recorded in Germany and will be released on new indie label Buddy Records, on August 15th. Gallagher kicks off a lengthy Irish tour at the Rathmullan Summerfest in Co Donegal on August 3rd.
