Pour It Out Into The Night is The Revivalists’ fifth full-length album featuring their best material to date. Together for fifteen years, and known for their soulful Alt-Rock anthems, distinctive mixing of classic styles of American music, and outstanding live performances, the band has played at some marquis venues like Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado, Radio City Music Hall in New York City, as well as the usual hole-in-the-wall clubs, but never losing sight where they came from. “Music, art and creativity are a rallying point,” Andrew Campanelli observes. “That’s what our band and songs try to speak to. Being in communion with other people is what this is all about. That we can share with others through music is something that we are so grateful for.”
Following 2014’s City of Sound, the band broke through with 2015’s Men Amongst Mountains that featured the double-platinum #1 Alternative Radio and the Billboard Hot 100 hit “Wish I Knew You.” The follow-up, 2018’s Take Good Care yielded two #1 Alternative hits “Change” and “All My Friends,” with their total streams exceeding half a billion, a rarity for any rock band.
In 2020, the band wrote, recorded and shared ideas with one another while David Shaw (lead vocals, guitar) and Zack Feinberg (guitar) began writing together at Shaw’s home studio, resulting in Pour It Out Into The Night’s lead single “Kid,” as the band spent countless hours crafting the music between themselves before taking it to a producer. They laid down demos in their practice space in New Orleans at Fountainbleau and at Marigny Studios. After this explosion of creativity, The Revivalists escaped to the magical beauty of Vermont for a two week recording session with Grammy Award-winning producer Rich Costey (Muse, Foster the People, Death Cab For Cutie), who produced Pour It Into The Night, with the rest of the band co-producing.
“For us it was about getting back into a room and playing together,” says Shaw. “I wrote with Zack a lot for this album. It was so nice to be able to get back into pure Revivalists form. It feels like a coming home kind of vibe.” Pour It Out Into The Night, is about unburdening from things that cause us concern and how to let them go in order to find peace of mind and moving forward, while airplay moves forward at 75% of the panel, including WXRT, WXPN, The Spectrum, WAPS, KINK and many, many more.
