“Breakout rockers…” – Entertainment Weekly
“Nostalgic soft rock ‘n’ roll.” – Buzzfeed

The Revivalists are set to perform their massive hit single “Wish I Knew You” (PRESS HERE) on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday, July 19th. Be sure to tune in to ABC at 11:35/10:35c!
After claiming the #1 spot at Adult Alternative Radio last Fall, the chart-topping single went on to reach #1 at Alternative Radio this past spring, and even set a new record for most single-week spins ever at the format. “Wish I Knew You” continues its unstoppable climb breaking now at Hot AC and landing major Top 40 adds such as Los Angeles‘ KIIS-FM. First released in July 2015, the enduring tune has had a remarkable trajectory and a staying power rarely seen in music today. Featuring wistful lyrics, front man David Shaw‘s unmistakable soulful rasp, an indelible melody and a mix of bluesy rock and Southern R&B swagger not usually heard at the Alternative format, “Wish I Knew You” has earned the New Orleans seven-piece multiple national TV appearances on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, TODAY and Conan.
The Revivalists are currently in the midst of a whirlwind summer of festival appearances and their Fire Into Light headlining tour, including a very special performance at New York City’s Central Park Summer Stage on August 10th. Full routing below.
Selling out back-to-back headlining tours, The Revivalists are recognized as a stellar live band featuring pedal steel guitar, sax and trumpet, and are praised for their eclectic Southern mix of jazz-funk grooves, blues rock grit, warm melodies and masterful musicianship.
