Today is the day!  City of Sound, with the live bonus disc is in stores everywhere.  City of Sound is a record that has meant a lot to us as we’ve grown as a band over the last few years.  As we’ve traveled all over playing shows we have constantly been asked to put out live material, but because we were playing and touring so much, we didn’t have a chance to record anything that lived up to our expectations until this past year.   After we signed to Wind-up and started talking about re-releasing City Of Sound we jumped at the opportunity to include these live tracks for free.  It gives our fans a chance to go back and listen to the album but now they get a bit extra with it as well.

So go pick up City of Sound, and thanks for all the continuing support:

One week from today, City of Sound will be re-issued with a bonus live disc and from now until then USA Today is streaming the entire album right now at  We’re especially proud of the way that the live disc (which is included in the package for free, and streaming as well) turned out, and are excited that you can finally hear it.

We are incredibly excited to tell you that Wind Up Records will be re-releasing City of Sound on Tuesday March 4th (Mardi Gras Baby!) with a SECOND disc containing over an hour of live tracks that we recorded last Fall. We spent a lot of time sifting through our shows and selecting our favorite performances, and we could not be prouder of the result. We as a band are and always have been really proud of City of Sound, and it has helped us go a long way. We want to thank all of you for helping us along the way.

We have a PRE-ORDER up and running right now where you can get your copy of City of Sound, and also pick up some bundles with exclusive pre-order t-shirts (two shirt color options), and/or a show poster signed by the band from our album release Mardi Gras show on 2/28 at Tipitina’s in New Orleans. And since it is Mardi Gras all pre-orders will come with City of Sound Mardi Gras beads. Also there will be a vinyl edition of City of Sound (printed on Swamp Green colored vinyl) released on April 15th.

We are pleased to announce that we have signed a deal with Wind-up Records. They will be re-releasing City of Sound in early 2014, packaged with a live disc. We’re about to start working on our next album, which we plan on releasing in the late summer or fall . Wind-Up is one of the largest independent record labels in the known universe and we’re truly excited for what we can do together. We see this partnership as an opportunity to advance and empower the beautiful thing we have been working on for the last six years. Thank you guys! We could not have done it without all of your love and support.

The Revivalists

Full press release with some newly announced tour dates at the bottom is below.


NEW YORK, NY (November 13, 2013) – Wind-up Records is proud to announce the signing of New Orleans band The Revivalists.  The guys have spent the last few years touring all over the country, playing countless sold out shows from California to New York and places in between.  They have become a must see band on the festival circuit, performing in featured slots at Bonnaroo, Jazz Fest, Voodoo Music Experience, Governors Ball, The Hangout Festival, Mountain Jam and many more.  David Fricke of Rolling Stone says “…a Crescent City-rhythm spin on jam-band jubilee…”  Relix adds “…the group’s powerful and accessible sound…with funky grooves and danceable beats…The singer wails with an Eddie Vedder-intensity…”

The Revivalists will showcase their musical prowess when featured in the upcoming fourth and final season of HBO’s acclaimed drama series “Treme” in an episode called “Sunset on Louisianne” airing December 22nd.  In the episode the band performs “Concrete (Fish Out Of Water)” off their 2008 self-titled EP at the Always Lounge in NOLA where Davis McAlary (played by Steve Zahn), a part-time DJ, aspiring songwriter and music scenester goes to see them perform.

The Revivalists will release their Wind-up Records debut album in 2014.  Until then, they will be touring throughout the United States in support of their album City of Sound. The tour includes a stop in Brooklyn to perform to their third straight sold out crowd at Brooklyn Bowl on November 22nd. Their first stop at the Bowl featured a guest appearance by guitarist Warren Haynes going outside the box with a cover of “Forgot About Dre” – watch it here.  Upcoming and new tour dates are listed below.  More dates will be added soon.

The Revivalists have been playing nonstop since 2007, crafting a genre-hopping sound that rounds out traditional rock instrumentation with horns and pedal steel guitar and mixes the divergent backgrounds of its individual members with the humid, funky undercurrents of the band’s New Orleans home.  The result is like English spoken with an exotic accent: familiar, yet difficult to pin down.  Religion aside, a revival is all about the tangible electricity that can only be created when enough like minds are crammed under a single roof for a singular purpose. It’s a spiritual spectacle, a carnival of the divine, a whole greater than the sum of its parts.

The Revivalists are David Shaw (Vocals), Ed Williams (Pedal Steel Guitar),  Zack Feinberg (Guitar),  Rob Ingraham (Saxophone), George Gekas (Bass), Andrew Campanelli (Drums) and
Michael Girardot (Keys/Trumpet).
