By now you’ve probably seen a video or two of Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian and his 11-year-old son Revel Ian performing together. The father-son duo have performed a plethora of awesome covers together, with the Anthrax guitarist uploading said covers to his personal Instagram account. Together, Revel and his dad have covered songs from Sepultura, System of a Down, and have more recently paid tribute to the late Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins. (You can find the videos for these performances below).

But now Revel is stepping things up in his musical career; while he still may be performing covers with his dad, the son of the Anthrax guitarist has now joined a full band!

Said band is a rock act called Honeybee and they have released a new song called “Get Out Of My Head Now.” Along with the 11-year-old Revel Ian on drums, Honeybee consists of 16-year-old guitarist-vocalist Liam Williams and 15-year-old bassist/vocalist Theo O’Gara.

You can check out the song “Get Out Of My Head Now” from Revel Ian’s new band Honeybee below:

Per the band’s official website:

“The venerable HONEYBEE is a three piece real live Rock and Roll band armed with cosmic talent beyond their years. Formed in 2019 by Revel Ian (drums), Liam Williams (guitar/vocals), and Theo O’Gara (bass/vocals) deep in the Santa Monica Mountains of Southern California, HONEYBEE has already begun devastating the hearts and minds of audiences with their explosive cocktail of Hard Rock and Metal, a dash of Prog, and an alt-Folk edge.  Struck by the otherworldly Bonham-like beats that he heard rising from his little sister’s basement band rehearsal, Liam Williams, who had been looking to form a band of his own, discovered the natural-born talents of young drummer Revel Young Ian, and promptly asked if he could join him on lead guitar in an impromptu jam. Immediately the two boys gelled in sound and vibe. Realizing that they needed to carry on making music together, they quickly joined forces with Liam’s classmate, and bass-master Theo O’Gara and the trinity was formed.  With all three members of HONEYBEE being true multi-instrumentalists each born into musical families all with slightly different styles, Liam, Revel, and Theo recognize collectively their individual musical flavors and they bring them together to enhance their own music’s deep foundation through the spectrum of Rock and Roll, from Classic Rock to New Metal and everything in between.  Pouring together an avalanche of original song ideas, HONEYBEE quickly put together an album of brand new tracks that would have the likes of bands like Queens of the Stone Age afraid to follow them. All together they spent 4 days at the famous Studio 606 in Northridge, CA plugged into the legendary Sound City Neve console. There they let the organic waves of their inspiration flow and coagulate through great time worn channels creating their debut self-titled album releasing this spring 2022.”
