Revive (sometimes styled Rev!ve) was a Christian rock band based out of Atlanta, Georgia, which consisted of Dave Hanbury, Rich Thompson, AJ Cheek and Michael Wright. Formed in 2004, they had success throughout Australia, releasing two albums, as well as supporting Third Day on a national tour in January 2007. The band then relocated to America to pursue their career in Christian music. In August 2009, it was announced that Tyler Hall would be leaving the band on September 4. He was replaced by Nevertheless guitarist, AJ Cheek. Revive was featured in the 2010 Winter Jam tour along with several other Christian artists and bands such as Tenth Avenue North, Third Day, Robert Pierre, The Newsboys and more. In the fall of 2010, Revive teamed up with Hawk Nelson, Britt Nicole, and John Reuben on the "Fly Me To The Show" Tour. On October 25, 2010, Mike Tenkate officially announced that he would be leaving the band at the end of 2010. With the start of 2011 the newest member Michael Wright out of Nashville came on board to fulfill the drumming position. Shortly to follow came one of Revive's last national extents with Building429 on their "Listen to the Sound" tour with opening artist Anthem Lights.
On July 3, 2011, Revive announced on their website that they had decided to finish their nearly 10-year long adventure, and that they were saying farewell to the band.
