More on The Revivalists below:

The Revivalists have been on an unbelievable ride where ten years of tireless hard work was unexpectedly revved up by the wrongly dubbed “overnight success” of the gold-selling #1 single “Wish I Knew You.”
Since forming in New Orleans, the group quietly grinded one gig, song, and album at a time.  Seven years in, the lead single “Wish I Knew You” from 2015’s Men Amongst Mountainsbecame a slow-burning hit, racking up more than 200 million streams and ascending to #1 on Adult Alternative as well as Alternative radio where it set a record for most single-week spins ever at the format. A mainstream phenomenon, the song found traction at Hot AC and Top 40 and spent nine weeks on the Billboard Hot 100. The band performed on Today, Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!, Ellen, and Conan amongst acclaim came from the likes of Billboard, USA Today, Entertainment Weekly, Forbes, Flaunt, Nylon, Buzzfeed, Uproxx and more, with Rolling Stonenaming them among “10 Artists You Need To Know.” A Billboard Music Awards nomination and two nods at the iHeartRadio Music Awards would follow, capping off three years of back-to-back sold out headline tours.
