Album opener “Otherside of Paradise” came to life in just one vocal take bolstered by fingerpicked clean guitars and cathedral-size harmonies. The guttural grooves of “Oh No” spiral towards a fret-burning solo as wild and gritty as David Shaw’s delivery. “Hate To Love You” is tender and gorgeous and “Change” climaxes on a raw howl. “You Said It All” illuminates the dynamics at the heart of the record. The Revivalists also recently released a limited edition 7″ “Shoot You Down” vinyl single powered by RPM, benefitting Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund. The Revivalists felt compelled to put pen to paper and speak to the overwhelming gun violence problem in our society, creating a powerful song that serves as both an emotional balm and a call to action. The vinyl, which is orange – the color of the gun violence prevention movement, is available exclusively at independent record stores around the country. Everytown is leading a movement of more than 4 million Americans working to end gun violence and build safer communities. PRESS HERE to read David Shaw’s exclusive interview with Salon. Find record stores near you at
