The Revivalists Pour It Out Into The Night
Release Date: June 2, 2023
The Revivalists make the kind of rock ‘n’ roll that grabs you and doesn’t let go. Pour It Out Into The Night is a celebration of resilience, living for who you are and what you’re about.
The Revivalists retain an unbreakable union 15 years into their impressive career as they unleash their strongest material yet. Standing together, this eight-piece rock 'n' roll collective has made the journey from hole-in-the-wall gigs to sold-out shows at hallowed venues such as Radio City Music Hall and Red Rocks Amphitheater, multiplatinum success, numerous national television performances, and more than 800 million streams. Along the way, David Shaw (lead vocals, guitar), Zack Feinberg (guitar), Andrew Campanelli (drums), George Gekas (bass), Ed Williams (pedal steel guitar), Rob Ingraham (saxophone), Michael Girardot (keyboard, trumpet), and PJ Howard (drums, percussion) never lost sight of where they came from. It shows on their fifth full-length offering, Pour It Out Into The Night.
"Music, art, and creativity are a rallying point," Andrew observes. "That's what our band name and songs try to speak to. Being in communion with other people is what this is all about. That we can share this experience with others through music is something that we are so grateful for."
"This band is one of the biggest representations of love in my life. It's love personified. And what we've created has turned into something bigger than all of us. It's still mind-boggling to me to this day," marvels David.
The Revivalists – renowned for their live prowess, soulful alt-rock anthems, and distinct mix of classic styles of American music - make the kind of rock 'n' roll that grabs you and doesn't let go, whether for a joyful release or a pensive observation about life. Pour It Out Into The Night is a life-affirming album about living in the moment, fueled by lessons in gratitude and life realizations. As the world came to a standstill in the years since their last album, Take Good Care, personal experiences and life challenges abounded, with band members having their first children, getting married, and navigating the mental hurdles of lockdown.
"Art can revive and make life feel vibrant," says Andrew. "Live music can especially do that. When we first started out, we were watching New Orleans rebuild after Katrina, and fight to keep the city's spirit alive. In a way, that's what we're seeing now, except on a global scale. Everybody realizes what they almost lost, and it happens to be many of the things New Orleans is known for – being with friends, experiencing things good and bad, building fulfilling relationships, and going to concerts and restaurants. It boils down to the zest for life - that's what our band name and music are all about."
The Revivalists are an American rock band formed in New Orleans, Louisiana in 2007. Following their debut album, Vital Signs (2010) and the follow up, City of Sound (2014), the group broke through on their own terms with 2015’s Men Against Mountains. The smash single “Wish I Knew You” notably earned a double-platinum certification from the RIAA and crossed over to the Billboard Hot 100. The band has received acclaim in numerous publications including Rolling Stone, NPR, Billboard, SPIN, Entertainment Weekly, USA Today, Buzzfeed, and Forbes. On the road, they’ve headlined hallowed venues coast-to-coast, opened for the Rolling Stones, and graced the bills of Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Governors Ball, and New Orleans Jazz Fest, among others. They’ve also delivered standout television performances on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!, TODAY, Austin City Limits, and Ellen. Following 2018’s Take Good Care, the band’s total streams exceeded half-a-billion. In 2020, they unveiled the Made In Muscle Shoals
EP accompanied by a mini-doc.
