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 Festival, Governors Ball, The Hangout Festival, Mountain Jam and many more.  David Fricke of Rolling Stone calls them “…a Crescent City-rhythm spin on jam-band jubilee…” and 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. New and upcoming tour dates are listed below with more dates to 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).The Revivalists Tour Dates:11/13 - Live Oak, FL - Bear Creek Music & Arts Festival (Benefit Show)11/15 - Live Oak, FL - Bear Creek Music & Arts Festival11/16 - Charleston, SC - The Pour House11/18 - Raleigh, NC - Southland Ballroom11/20 - Richmond, VA - The Capital Ale House11/21 - Washington DC - The Hamilton11/22 - New York, NY - Brooklyn Bowl11/23 - Philadelphia, PA - The Blockley11/24 - Port Chester, NY - Garcias @ The Capital Theater12/05 - St. Petersburg, FL - Local 66212/06 - Orlando, FL - The Social12/07 - Miami, FL - Willcall (Art Basel Afterparty)12/08 - Key West, FL - Ocean Key Resort Sunset Pier12/09 - Key West, FL - Ocean Key Resort Sunset Pier12/27 - Pensacola, FL - Vinyl Music Hall12/28 - Pensacola, FL - Vinyl Music Halll12/31 - New Orleans, LA - The Civic Theatre1/04 - Miami, FL - Jam Cruise1/10 - Boca Raton, FL - Funky Biscuit1/31 - Austin, TX - The Parish2/01 - Dallas, TX - The Prophet Bar       2/04 - Fort Collins, CO - Hodi's Half Note                          2/05 - Breckenridge, CO - Three20South2/06 - Aspen, CO - Belly Up Aspen2/07 - Avon, CO - Agave2/08 - Denver, CO - Bluebird Theatre2/10 - Lawrence, KS - The Bottleneck2/11 - St. Louis, MO - Old Rock House2/12 - Nashville, TN - Mercy Lounge2/13 - Athens, GA - Georgia Theatre2/14 - Live Oak, FL - Aura Music Festival2/15 - Mobile, AL - Soul Kitchen
