Changes: For fans of Wind-up Artists’

Wind-up Records recently completed a deal to sell its legacy master recordings to The Bicycle Music Company, the Concord Music Group and their affiliates.  The library includes master recordings, albums and multimedia produced by Wind-up and its artists over a 16-year period, including seventy-six RIAA gold, platinum, multi-platinum and diamond award certifications from artists that include Creed, Drowning Pool, Evanescence, Finger Eleven, Seether and many more.

"Today is a great day for Wind-up and our amazing group of artists,” said Wind-Up CEO & President Ed Vetri about the move.  “Our roster of platinum, multi-platinum and diamond artists will now be able to call Concord and Bicycle their new home.  I am confident with the experience of their staffs and scale of the combined companies our artists will find continued growth and achieve even greater levels of success. The future of Wind-up is diverse, exciting and strong.  We continue to build our strength as an artist-driven independent label with our growing roster of amazing new talent with the goal of developing career artists."

Wind-up Records currently has a roster of over fifteen acts including Civil Twilight, Jillette Johnson, The Griswolds, The Virginmarys, Young Guns, Strange Talk, The Revivalists, James Durbin, Five for Fighting, Scott Stapp, The Darkness, Crobot, Filter, Genevieve and Aranda. The company now owns countless masters copyrights; it also includes a management company with a dozen clients, a publishing operation and a merchandising company.


Wind-up Records is proud to announce the signing of New Orleans band The Revivalists.  The guys have spent the last few years touring all over the country, playing countless sold out shows from California to New York and places in between.  They have become a must see band on the festival circuit, performing in featured slots at Bonnaroo, Jazz Fest, Voodoo Festival, Governors Ball, The Hangout Festival, Mountain Jam and many more.  David Fricke of Rolling Stone says “…a Crescent City-rhythm spin on jam-band jubilee…”  Relix adds “…the group’s powerful and accessible sound…with funky grooves and danceable beats...The singer wails with an Eddie Vedder-intensity...”

The Revivalists will showcase their musical prowess when featured in the upcoming fourth and final season of HBO’s acclaimed drama series “Treme” in an episode called “Sunset on Louisianne” airing December 22nd.  In the episode the band performs “Concrete (Fish Out Of Water)” off their 2008 self-titled EP at the Always Lounge in NOLA where Davis McAlary (played by Steve Zahn), a part-time DJ, aspiring songwriter and music scenester goes to see them perform.

The Revivalists will release their Wind-up Records debut album in 2014.  Until then, they will be touring throughout the United States in support of their album City of Sound. The tour includes a stop in Brooklyn to perform to their third straight sold out crowd at Brooklyn Bowl on November 22nd. Their first stop at the Bowl featured a guest appearance by guitarist Warren Haynes going outside the box with a cover of “Forgot About Dre” - watch it here.  Upcoming and new tour dates are listed below.  More dates will be added soon.

The Revivalists have been playing nonstop since 2007, crafting a genre-hopping sound that rounds out traditional rock instrumentation with horns and pedal steel guitar and mixes the divergent backgrounds of its individual members with the humid, funky undercurrents of the band’s New Orleans home.  The result is like English spoken with an exotic accent: familiar, yet difficult to pin down.  Religion aside, a revival is all about the tangible electricity that can only be created when enough like minds are crammed under a single roof for a singular purpose. It’s a spiritual spectacle, a carnival of the divine, a whole greater than the sum of its parts.

The Revivalists are David Shaw (Vocals), Ed Williams (Pedal Steel Guitar),  Zack Feinberg (Guitar),  Rob Ingraham (Saxophone), George Gekas (Bass), Andrew Campanelli (Drums) and Michael Girardot (Keys/Trumpet).
