Black Box Revelation is Jan Paternoster (25, vocals & guitar)and Dries Van Dijck (23, drums). This duo began jamming together during their college years and were picked up directly by the press during two national rock contests. They immediately got to sign a record deal. Since then they released three albums: 'Set Your Head On Fire' (2007), 'Silver Threats' (2010) and 'My Perception' (2011).

Black Box Revelation had several radio hits ('High On A Wire', 'Never Alone, Always Together', 'I Think I Like You', 'My Perception' ...), received platinum and were released in more than twenty countries. Their third album was recorded by Alain Johannes (Queens Of The Stone Age, Cris Cornell, Them Crooked Vultures) in his studio in LA.

Black Box Revelation toured Europe with their own headlining shows and toured extensively in the United States sharing stages with Iggy Pop, Jane's Addiction, Meat Puppets, Beady Eye, The Eagles Of Death Metal, The Raveonettes, dEUS ...

But above all they are known for their live performances: the unbelievable sound they create on stage is hailed by press and public. 2015 saw the release of their long-expected new album: 'Highway Cruiser'.
