The Revivalists new album ‘Men Amongst Mountains’ out now!

Seven-piece New Orleans rock hybrids The Revivalists just released their latest studio offering, Men Amongst Mountains via Wind-up Records. Gaining critical acclaim from the likes of Paste Magazine, Yahoo Music, PopMatters, Relix, Baeble and more, the band return with a strong collection of tracks that blends indie rock and folk sensibilities that ooze with all the grit of their southern hometown.

Men Amongst Mountains is an album about growth. It is appropriate, then, that the band set out to challenge itself while writing and recording the album. The Revivalists cloistered themselves within the intimate confines of Bogalusa, LA’s Studio in the Country for nearly two weeks while recording Men Amongst Mountains, taking advantage of the studio’s generous acoustics by setting up in a single room and recording to tape in an effort to induce a more performance-based album. New Orleans’ Esplanade and Living Room Studios hosted the finishing touches to an album which leans first and foremost on capturing authentic moments in warm, rich tones and with a distinctly raw, old-world feel.

The band, known for their enigmatic live shows, is coming off two Sold Out album release shows recently in New York City at The Bowery Ballroom and Music Hall of Williamsburg, and continue to tour across the country throughout the summer and through the rest of the year. Highlights include performances at festivals such as Forecastle in Louisville, KY and the inaugural Kaaboo Festival in Del Mar, CA, as well as very special headlining shows at the legendary 930 Club in Washington DC for Halloween, and Atlanta’s Buckhead Theatre on New Years Eve.
