Brisbane metalcore outfit Revoid release their foreboding new single Burn With Me ahead of live dates supporting metalcore stars Dayseeker (US) and an AM//PM Emo Night show with Stepson.
Armed with livid intensity, and rife with emotional charge, magnetic vocals, and catastrophic breakdowns, Burn With Me is the group’s heaviest single to date. Featuring catchy choruses and vibrant synth accompaniments to juxtapose the heaviness of the underlying instrumentation driving the song, the track beautifully straddles the dark and light elements of metalcore.
Frontman Dale Dudeson delves deep into the cycle of narcissistic abuse and the pervasive self-sacrifice, frustration and hopelessness that comes with it. “Burn With Me illustrates the strain, tension, and crushing frustration in the way we are constantly forced to make sacrifices for the people we love, and the breaking point we’re pushed to when we can’t give anymore,” tells Dudeson. “Burn With Me is the personification of the disappointment I have in those who I have given everything for, only to have them to bury me like a bad dream.”
Engineered and mixed by Mark Williamson at Keywork Audio (Inertia, Broken Earth) and mastered by Kris Crummett (All Time Low, Sleeping With Sirens), Burn With Me further highlights the groups affinity for high quality production and emotive songwriting.

Adding to their impressive resume of support slots with the likes of Void of Vision, Bloom, alt., Saviour and more, Revoid announced two massive upcoming shows where they’ll share a collection of new tunes. Revoid will play Brisbane AM//PM Emo Night on Saturday June 10 supporting hometown heroes Stepson alongside friends in East Capri. Tickets on sale here. In addition to this, the lads have unveiled they will also play their biggest show yet on Friday July 28, supporting California’s Dayseeker at an exclusive Brisbane headline show alongside Inertia. Tickets on sale via Destroy All Lines.
