Black Box Revelation is a Belgian rock band. It was formed in 2005 by vocalist and guitarist Jan Paternoster and drummer Dries Van Dijck. The band achieved great reviews with their debut Set Your Head on Fire and second album Silver Threats.
In 2011, the band released their third album My Perception, including the hit singles “Rattle My Heart” and “My Perception”. After three years of silence, the duo announced their new studio album ‘Highway Cruiser’ with hits ‘Gloria’ and ‘War Horse’.
After releasing 4 amazing albums, supporting Meat Puppets, Beady Eye, Jane’s Addiction, Iggy Pop & Seasick Steve, playing exciting tours through the US and Europe, recording in L.A. with producer & Queens of The Stone Age guitarist Alain Johannes, their music turning up in TV series such as Sons of Anarchy and True Blood, not to mention a guest appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman, they released ‘Tattooed Smiles’ in 2018. This was an album that Jan Paternoster & Dries Van Dijk could only have written at that point and place. A powerful and emotional record, embracing the raw beauty of their cradle Brussels, and brutal aesthetics of a lost generation looking for ways to survive in their homestead.
