Chart-topping rock band The Revivalists have released a new politically charged album track “The Long Con” today from their forthcoming studio album Pour It Out Into The Night (out June 2 via Concord Records), as lead radio single "Kid" is rising fast, jumping into the Top 10 at AAA and trending Top 10 at Alternative Radio after being #1 most added at both formats in its first week, and starting to buzz at Hot AC, with more than 1.3 million streams to date.

 Featuring a gospel-style chant and a punchy groove amped up by waves of distortion, “The Long Con” acknowledges the deep divisions in our country with the hope that we can hold onto the power of love. PRESS HERE to listen to “The Long Con” and pre-save/pre-order Pour It Out Into The Night HERE. Each pre-order includes an instant download of “The Long Con” and “Kid.”

“‘The Long Con’ is a song for the marginalized, the underrepresented and taken advantage of. It’s heartbreaking to see what’s happening in our country. I wanted to write a song that we could all sing together at our concerts, and truly feel connected and aligned. It’s a song for the people,” says vocalist/guitarist David Shaw.

The Revivalists’ lead single “Kid,” which sees the band featured on this week’s cover of Apple Music’s ALT CTRL playlist, is a hopeful anthem invoking the zest for life, self-belief, catharsis and “living for the spirit now” as the song declares, featuring an infectious melody and piano peeking through bright acoustic guitar as intricate layers of the band's distinctive instrumentation power a euphoric chantable chorus. Directed by Johnny Chew, the graffiti-inspired music video features artful, eye-popping stop-motion animation of the band against a backdrop that pays homage to the architectural and artistic aesthetics that define the band’s home of New Orleans. PRESS HERE to watch the “Kid” video.

“Kid” introduces Pour It Out Into The Night, a life-affirming album about living in the moment that offers both an unburdening and an appreciation for the here and now, 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. The band’s process for this record was the most self-guided one yet, and was produced by GRAMMY Award-winning producer Rich Costey [Muse, Foster the People, Death Cab for Cutie] with co-production from David, Zack, and the rest of the band.

The Revivalists are renowned for their live prowess, soulful alt-rock anthems, and distinct mix of many of the classic styles of American music, led by the incredible voice of front man David Shaw. will deliver a big hometown set at New Orleans JazzFest in April and Bonnaroo in June before embarking on their North American tour, including co-headline dates with The Head and The Heart beginning June 30th followed by co-headline dates with Band Of Horses beginning July 28th.
