The group began playing in early 2000 using the name Orco. They moved to Los Angeles in July 2001 and began playing venues, which eventually caught the attention of record labels. In January of 2002, the band signed with Epic Records. It was during the five weeks of recording that the band changed its name to Revis because a European band was already using Orco. The end result of their efforts was a debut album titled Places for Breathing, which was released on May 20, 2003. The band's hometown of Carbondale announced May 19, 2003 "Revis Day" in tribute to the group.
After some touring with popular groups like Evanescence, Fuel, and Cold, Revis scored two rock radio hits, "Caught in the Rain," which was initially featured in the movie Daredevil, and "Seven." Their album debuted at #1 on Billboard's Heatseekers chart and peaked at #115 on the Billboard Top 200. Despite the band's rising popularity, Revis announced that they were disbanding in 2005.
In February 2010, Revis announced a reunion and plan to record two new cds, Titled "Fire And Ice" and "So Long Gone"
