GULF RESTORATION CHARITY VINYL SALE

April 22nd, 2014

Happy Earth Day everybody!  As long time residents of New Orleans, and a band that has played shows all up and down the Gulf of Mexico from the Keys of Florida to Texas, we have seen first hand how important the Gulf is to the people and the culture of the entire region.  One of the many organizations that has done a great job helping to support and protect it is The Gulf Restoration Network.  In honor of Earth Day we’re going to donate 25% of all sales of The Limited Edition Swamp Green ‘City of Sound’ Vinyl (and anything else you buy at the same time) through The Revivalists Online Store from now through the end of April to the GRN.  We also encourage you to check out their organization and the work that they do at https://healthygulf.org.

ABOUT THE GULF RESTORATION NETWORK
The Gulf Restoration Network is committed to uniting and empowering people to protect and restore the natural resources of the Gulf Region.

The GRN’s vision is that the Gulf of Mexico will continue to be a natural, economic, and recreational resource that is central to the
culture and heritage of five states and three nations. The people of the region will be stewards of this vital but imperiled treasure, and
they will assume the responsibility of returning the Gulf to its previous splendor.

Within this vision, we see the mission of the GRN as one of uniting and empowering people to protect and restore the resources of the Gulf Region for future generations. To this end, the GRN works to provide technical support and mentoring to grassroots groups, to connect our members to developments on national and regional issues of importance to their work, and to provide coordination, when needed, of member activities across the region.

The GRN’s staff also pursues campaigns on priority issues affecting the entire Gulf region, including water quality, wetlands, sustainable fisheries, smart energy, hurricane rebuilding, and species-at-risk. The GRN partners with other organizations on common initiatives within these arenas.  The GRN also engages individuals through information sharing, publications and an e-mail action alert network.  In this way, the GRN intends to play a pivotal role in providing our members and others with the technical information, Gulf-wide networking opportunities, and communication that will empower them to successfully address the environmental threats that the Gulf faces.

CITY OF SOUND IS AVAILABLE NOW

March 4th, 2014

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:

iTunes & Amazon MP3
