R.E.V.O. features Walk Off The Earth's immensely popular cover of Gotye's "Somebody That I Used To Know" (which was the #2 trending YouTube video of 2012 with over 140 million views), as well as 10 original songs, including first breakout single "Red Hands," which has been added to radio stations nationwide and is quickly climbing airplay charts, approaching the Top 30 at AAA radio. The group is known for their elaborate videos, and in a nod to their most popular video with all five band members playing one guitar, the band have taken things a step further and covered their own single "Red Hands" with all five band members playing one GIANT guitar.
