Following lead singer Steve Moore’s fight with cancer, Canadian metal and prog rockers tackle deeper issues.
New York, NY – Independent Music Promotions announced the release of “Revolt,” the intense first new single from Calgary’s The Unravelling since lead singer Steve Moore’s successful battle with cancer. Suite 101 calls The Unravelling a band who “combines the alternative stylings of Tool with the adventurousness, ambition, and refusal to compromise of The Dillinger Escape Plan.” The Unravelling have opened for acts such as Helmet and Bison BC, topped the CJSW Metal charts, and been nominated for three 2010 Alberta Metal Awards, winning in the Best Album Production category.
The band released 24 separate art pieces, each with lyrics to “Revolt” in celebration of the single, ending with the full cover.

Described by Pure Grain Audio as “overflowing with a bloodthirsty passion,” The Unravelling’s debut full- length, psychoanalytic concept album 13 Arcane Hymns, was listed in Suite 101’s Top Heavy Metal Albums of 2010. Metalunderground.com, called the release “a surprising firebomb of an album,” while Pitch Black Magazine called it “a 13 track emotional and industrial infused metal masterpiece.”
Lead vocalist Moore was diagnosed with cancer in 2011. He was forced to spend the next year and a half in surgery and recovery, thus sending his collaborative partnership with the project’s founder and instrumentalist, Gustavo De Beauville, into a hiatus.
Anyone familiar with the two men behind The Unravelling might have known that Moore’s troubling diagnosis would merely delay the duo’s progress. During this time, De Beauville honed his production skills on a wealth of soundtrack work and solo material. He released Volume 1 in February of 2014, and was soon featured in Guitar World.
Following Moore’s recent recovery from cancer, The Unravelling are now back and more focused than ever. It is fitting that the newest song from Calgary’s heavy rock heroes is called “Revolt.” According to Moore, “the song was the first piece of new material Gus sent me, and it immediately struck me on a very deep level. It seems suitable that we’re releasing it now.”
Having experienced more than their share of physical challenges over the past few years, Moore and De Beauville are now much more aware of their inner health. Moore explains: “The lyrics to “Revolt” convey a rejection of the false and a need for inner change. This is an inner revolt that we are talking about.”
