The Black Box Revelation, also known as the BBR, is a Belgian garage rock band from Belgium. Jan Paternoster and Dries Van Dijck, two friends, started playing together (with Jan's brother Tim Paternoster as vocalist and Marquez on second guitar) as “The Mighty Generators”, at the respective ages of 12 and 14 years old. It was during this period that the two of them started jamming together as well. These jam sessions would lay the foundation to their new group: The Black Box Revelation. In 2007 the duo released their debut EP. The EP was supported by a video clip for “Kill For Peace (And Peace Will Die)”. The Belgian press was unanimously enthusiastic and this resulted in lots of club-gigs. During the summer of 2007 the band played at the big open-air festivals Dour and Pukkelpop The Black Box Revelation started recording their album “Set Your Head On Fire” mid 2007. The album was produced by Triggerfinger drummer Mario Goossens, mixed in Los Angeles by Greg Gordon (who had previously worked with Wolfmother, Jet and Soulwax), and mastered in New York by Fred Kevorkian (Iggy Pop, U2, The White Stripes). Their single “I Think I Like You” rapidly rose to the top of the radio charts. Peter Afterman and the Major League Baseball club Pittsburgh Pirates later bought the rights to "I Think I Like You". In June 2008, the Black Box Revelation started their first tour in the United States. They did some gigs in San Diego, West Hollywood and New York. The Black Box Revelation is currently in the studio recording their third release with legendary produce Alain Johannes (11, Queens of the Stone Age, Them Crooked Vultures). The new album (unnamed for the moment) will be out in late April/early May.
