New Orleans rock band The Revivalists have dropped a surprise release for their new live studio EP, Made In Muscle Shoals, along with an accompanying documentary (recorded and filmed at the legendary FAME Recording Studio), and a live studio video for brand new song titled “Bitter End.” 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 band 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. “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.
