The Revivalists have released a brand new single, “All My Friends“, marking their first release of new music since 2015’s Men Amongst Mountains. The New Orleans eight-piece skyrocketed to massive success in 2017 with their hit single “Wish I Knew You”, which hit #1 at Alternative and Adult Alternative Radio, reached the Top 15 at Hot AC, and spent 9 consecutive weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart—though they’ve been mainstays in the contemporary jam scene for the better part of a decade. While fans have been eagerly awaiting the new record for quite some time now, The Revivalists have been road-testing new material over the last several years. Now, the band is officially ready to present the studio versions, as well as never-before-heard tunes, on a new album, their fourth full-length studio release, due out this fall.
First up is “All My Friends”, a groove-filled anthem praising friendships over heartbreaks. The soulfully empowering lyrics will make you miss your 20s while also inspiring you to live life like you’ll never grow up. Striking, sharp, and soulful, with swaggering piano and boisterous horns, “All My Friends” introduces the band’s next chapter with confidence and charisma. Bump this:
The Revivalists – “All My Friends”
“All My Friends,” produced by GRAMMY-nominated producer/songwriter Dave Bassett (Elle King, Vance Joy) and co-written by Bassett and frontman David Shaw, signals the band’s newfound depth and ambition.
For the first time, The Revivalists recorded and co-wrote with multiple producers and writers, enlisting the talents of Dave Cobb (Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapleton), Andrew Dawson (Kanye West, Fun., Sleigh Bells), and Bassett for sessions in New Orleans as well as Nashville, where they recorded at the iconic RCA Studio B, soaking up the aura of one of the most storied studios in music.
Representing a vast swath of the country and defying regional pigeonholes, David Shaw’s (lead vocals, guitar) roots are in the Rust Belt, while Zack Feinberg (guitar), Ed Williams (pedal steel guitar) and George Gekas (bass) hail from the Tri-State area and Michael Girardot (keyboard, trumpet) and Rob Ingraham (saxophone) come from the Southwest. Andrew Campanelli (drums) cut his teeth in the D.C. scene, and newcomer PJ Howard (drums, percussion) made his bones in Chicago. Since forming in New Orleans, the group quietly ground out one gig, song, and album at a time.
The Revivalists are currently on the road and gearing up for a fall tour full of festival dates and headline shows, which will include a special show at Red Rocks on September 13th, a New Orleans performance at Voodoo Music and Arts Experience on October 26th, and David Shaw’s 3rd Annual Big River Get Down at RiversEdge Amphitheatre in his hometown of Hamilton, OH. Shaw’s annual festival has quickly become a not-to-be-missed music and community event.
