Formed back in 2007, The Revivalists have established a loyal following over the years, much of it derived from their energetic live shows. Like many bands, they hit the festival circuit hard early on and continue to do so, especially around their hometown of New Orleans.
Their music, too, also drew people in. On one song, they could be the second-coming of The David Matthews Band and another they’ll break out into a neo-soul number. What allows the band to move seamlessly across genres is the size and talents of the band. For The Revivalists are a seven-piece collective that includes pedal steel, trumpet, and saxophone along with the traditional band instruments.
On their latest single, “Keep Going“, The Revivalists go the soul route. It’s a rousing, euphoric number made for the upcoming festival season. The song’s message of perseverance also fits perfectly with the southern sound and the history of the Bayou city, and it could be the anthem for New Orleans.
“Keep Going” is the lead single from The Revivalists’ forthcoming new album, Men Amongst Mountains. It can be pre-ordered now as part of the band’s PledgeMusic campaign, and this track can be downloaded immediately with each purchase. The album comes out July 17.
The Revivalists are David Shaw (vocals/guitar); Zack Feinberg (guitar); George Gekas (bass); Ed Williams (pedal steel guitar); Rob Ingraham (saxophone); Andrew Campanelli (dums); and Michael Girardot (keyboard, trumpet).
“Keep Going” is also part the June 5th Edition of The Weekend Showcase, a weekly playlist of new music from around the globe.
