On the heels of The Revivalists’ epic return to Jazz Fest that saw them perform an electrifying set of hit songs and fan favorites to a sea of festivalgoers this past weekend, the chart-topping rock band has released a new track “You Said It All (Made In Muscle Shoals)” alongside a live studio video (out now via Concord Records). Recorded and filmed during the band’s sessions at the iconic FAME Recording Studio in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, “You Said It All” – a favorite in The Revivalists’ live shows – gets a fresh approach informed by the aura of the legendary studio. PRESS HERE to watch and HERE to listen.
“I started writing ‘You Said It All’ during a time in my life when I found the things surrounding me were receding. The song was sparked late at night during an underground Mardi Gras parade and I found myself in a surreal world I didn’t recognize only blocks from my house. The first lines of the song came straight from that experience of being in a place I knew so well but seeing it as an unknown landscape full of danger and possibility. The original demo was built on sounds referencing back to 90s rap but when we arranged the song for The Revivalists it got a more live band treatment. FAME Studios is known for making hits in an era where everything was played live and you can feel it in the room. Recording “You Said It All” there inspired us to bring the same energy we put into our live shows into this version of the song,” shares drummer Andrew Campanelli.
“You Said It All (Made In Muscle Shoals)” is the first release from the band’s Muscle Shoals sessions since their 2020 Made In Muscle Shoals live studio EP, which featured brilliant re-imaginings of fan favorites from the band’s last studio album Take Good Care including #1 Triple A and Top 5 Alternative hit “All My Friends,” a gorgeous version of their breakout platinum crossover smash “Wish I Knew You”, a cover of the Bee Gees’ “To Love Somebody,” new song “Bitter End,” and a mini-documentary that shared the deepest insight yet into the essence of the band against the backdrop of Muscle Shoals, a location that is steeped in the many classic styles of American music that now informs The Revivalists’ signature sound.
There is much more in store – stay tuned for an upcoming announcement!
The Revivalists – who are renowned for their live firepower and soulful alt-rock anthems and have more than 540 million global streams – are working on brand new music and have been on the road for their 2022 tour that included a sold-out show at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. On June 10, the acclaimed band will make their long-waited return to Red Rocks in Colorado for a sold-out headline show – their third consecutive sell-out at the storied venue. The show will be followed by several summer festival appearances including Peach Music Festival and Summerfest.
Additionally, front man David Shaw will hold his annual Big River Get Down in his hometown of Hamilton, OH on May 20th and May 21st at RiversEdge Amphitheater (making its return after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic). The two-day concert will kick off the 2022 RiversEdge concert season and feature The Revivalists, David Shaw, The Record Company, Maggie Rose, Judith Hill, Karina Rykman, Chris Gelbuda, and Raelyn Nelson Band. As a proud Hamilton, Ohio native, David created, produces, and hosts the Big River Get Down, a beloved local event that gives back to the ongoing renaissance of Hamilton, donating all proceeds to the City of Hamilton’s 4th of July fireworks and RiversEdge Concert Series.

Continuing their philanthropic efforts, The Revivalists are also donating $1 from each ticket sold on their tour to organizations that they have hand-picked for Rev Causes – their philanthropic umbrella fund that supports the essential work of organizations dedicated to reviving and investing in our communities, our health, and our environment. By donating a portion of ticket sales, through fan donations, and a variety of fundraising efforts, the band assists multiple national and local organizations in building a better future. Current organizations benefitting from Rev Causes include The National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty, Kids Join The Fight, the New Orleans Mission, Communities in Schools (Gulf South), and the ACLU of Louisiana.
