It's been 10 years since The Revivalists released their debut album Vital Signs, and though times may be dark right now, the folk rockers are giving fans something to look forward to by pressing the record on vinyl for the first time to celebrate the milestone. On Tuesday (March 31), the band reminisced about their first album on Instagram.
"It’s hard to believe that it’s been 10 years since the release of our debut LP Vital Signs," they wrote. "It was in these sessions that Rob Ingraham and Ed Williams cemented their places in our group with their 'weird instruments' as they like to say. Michael Girardot also made his first recording input for us with trumpet on 'Shot of Tears' leading to his full membership after."
"We're still proud of this early effort and more proud that we've grown and stuck together as a group for this awesome milestone among others," they continued. "To commemorate this anniversary (and because why not?) we’re pleased to announce we will at long last be pressing Vital Signs on vinyl. Release date TBA! Which tunes on this bad boy resonate most with you? And just for kicks, which ones did you completely forget existed and still couldn’t care less about!? Haha. Let us know!"

Like many bands, The Revivalists' tour dates have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic. Though they had to put their tour on halt, they've already announced rescheduled dates.
