The Revivalists Go Down The Rabbit Hole in New “Change” Video

“The Revivalists have a great vibe….good old-fashioned rock and roll….” – Variety
“… a raucous American band making big-hearted music with an ear for instant-classic hooks…a thick, soulful musical gumbo…” – Flaunt
 “…budding superstars who have tramped around Southern rock, classic soul, ’90s grunge and every iteration of Americana and roots music while stepping forward with touches of indie rock and hip-hop.” –Boston Herald
“… a creative, compelling blend of musical ingenuity and heart…” – Billboard
“…elements of just about every classic school of American music…it feels as new and engaging as it does familiar and comfortable…” – Uproxx
“The bridge between sounding contemporary and fresh and rustic and familiar has a home on the map of The Revivalists…They have brought their craft, inspiration, and creativity into coalescence to remind listeners of the joy of music and the joy of life.” – No Depression

“…Take Good Care rolls out like a pepper-forward home cooked meal, delivering plenty of sustenance and just enough heat to keep the dancefloor filled.” – All Music


Chart-topping rock band The Revivalists recently snuck away to Santa Fe with some RevHeads in tow for a crazy night at Meow Wolf’s mind-bending House of Eternal Return – or didn’t they? Not all is what it seems in their new video for single “Change,” much like Meow Wolfitself. The buzzed-about art collective’s House of Eternal Return (backed by Game of Thronesauthor George R.R. Martin) is a huge immersive multidimensional mystery dwelling complete with secret passages and portals to magical worlds amidst surreal and mesmerizing art installations.
After packing venues across the pond for their first-ever UK/European shows, The Revivalists,led by charismatic front man David Shawwill bring their rock n’ roll spirit, soulful essence and striking live presence to audiences around the country when their Take Good Care headlining tour picks back up stateside on March 8th at The Sylvee in Madison, WI, with several shows already sold out. For all ticketing details, please visit www.therevivalists.comA digital download of the band’s new studio album Take Good Care (out now on Loma Vista Recordings) is included with every ticket purchase for the U.S. tour.  The Revivalists also recently announced that they will tape an episode of Austin City Limits on April 9th and will play an epic hometown set at New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival on April 26th.
Following a big 2018 that brought the release of the New Orleans 8-piece’s long awaited fourth studio album, their biggest sell-out to date at Red Rocks, and the#1 Triple A and Top 5 Alternative hit single “All My Friends” which landed the band on The Late Show with Stephen ColbertThe Revivalists have already packed a punch in 2019. “Change” is a Top 3 Triple A radio hit and is quickly climbing at Alternative after several weeks of being the most-added song at the format. The band debuted “Change” onTODAY amidst a week of East Coast shows that included two sold-out nights at NYC’s historic Beacon Theatre, a show at Boston’s House of Blues that sold out in minutes, and a sell-out at DC’s 6,000-capacity The Anthem. The band also performed alongside Muse, The Killers, twenty one pilots, Weezer, Bishop Briggs and more at iHeartRadio’s ALTer Ego at LA’s The Forum last month.
The Revivalists had been grinding for 10 years when their now platinum-selling single “Wish I Knew You” took off. The new album Take Good Care captures the whirlwind that ensued, from celebratory anthems to cathartic moments and their most personal songs yet. On the anti-gun violence anthem “Shoot You Down,” The Revivalists speak out against the overwhelming gun violence problem in our society. The band released a now sold-out limited vinyl of “Shoot You Down” benefiting Everytown, and spoke to Salon about the message behind the song.
