Colour Revolt

The indie rock-band Color Revolt was formed by five university students from Jackson and Oxford, MS: lead singer, guitarist, and keyboard player Jesse Coppenbarger; guitarist Jimmy Cajoleas; guitarist, key pad player, and vocalist Sean Kirkpatrick; drummer and vocalist Len Clark; and bassist Drew Mellon. Previously referred to as Fletcher, the music group got its current name from Edwin Abbott’s 19th hundred years cultural commentary Flatland. Programs to record a debut EP within a friend’s cellar in Jackson had been disrupted in August 2005 by Hurricane Katrina, which stuffed the area with evacuees; rather, the bandmates proved helpful in the family room of who owns the neighborhood Esperanza Plantation label, which ultimately released their self-titled disk on the small-scale basis in Dec 2005. Color Revolt undertook a five-week nationwide tour starting for COMPLETELY NEW in the summertime of 2006. Tiny Bad, an imprint of Interscope Information, found the EP and offered it a nationwide release on Oct 31, 2006. After shifting to Body fat Possum in 2007 (and after Patrick Addison changed Drew Mellon on bass), the music group released its 1st full-length recording, Plunder, Beg and Curse, in Apr of 2008. Color Revolt’s sophomore work, The Cradle, adopted this year 2010.
