The Revivalists Release Made In Muscle Shoals Live Studio EP & Accompanying Documentary

The Revivalists have surprised fans with the release of their Made In Muscle Shoals live studio EP and accompanying documentary, which was recorded and filmed at the legendary FAME Recording Studio in Muscle Shoals, Alabama and directed by Jay Sansone of Human Being Media. CLICK HERE to watch and CLICK HERE to stream/download. Capturing the essence of The Revivalists at this exciting time in their 10-year journey, the documentary gives the deepest insight yet into what makes the band tick against the backdrop of Muscle Shoals, a location steeped in the many classic styles of American music that informs the New Orleans – based band’s signature sound. The Revivalists bring us into the studio with them as they record the Made In Muscle Shoals EP, which features brilliant re-imaginings of the band’s hit “Oh No,” “You & I,” “Change,” and “All My Friends” from their latest studio album, Take Good Care (Loma Vista Recordings), as well as a soulful rendition of The Bee Gees’ “To Love Somebody” and a gorgeous stripped down piano-and-vocal take of their platinum-selling hit “Wish I Knew You.” The EP also includes a never-before-released, brand new song “Bitter End” about being stuck in a one-sided love – CLICK HERE to watch the full live studio video.

“We went to Muscle Shoals to capture that special kind of real and raw that only a place like that can provide. There’s a certain kind of magic that occurs when you’re amongst the spirit in that room. All the history, all the hurt, all the passion and perseverance that went into making what is now one of the most iconic studios in America was ever-present and always felt,” shares front man David Shaw.

The Revivalists’ Into The Stars headlining tour kicks off February 28th and will include a stop at Radio City Music Hall in NYC on March 21st, a hometown show at The Fillmore on May 2nd following their appearance at Jazz Fest in New Orleans, and a return to Red Rocks Amphitheatre on June 12th for the third consecutive year after selling out their headline shows at the famed venue in 2018 and 2019. $1 of every ticket sold will be donated to a variety of organizations through the band’s newly established umbrella fund, Rev Causes, which supports the essential work of organizations dedicated to reviving and investing in our communities, health, and environment.
