The second annual REVIVAL TOUR 2009–a nationwide trek founded by Chuck Ragan, the singer/songwriter/guitarist and Hot Water Music co-frontman–is set to launch October 13 in Louisville and wrap November 21 in St. Petersburg. Drawing from a diverse group of established musicians in indie Americana, rock, punk, Irish folk, Cajun, zydeco and blues, THE REVIVAL TOUR will take the band of traveling musicians through 32 U.S. cities including New York City, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Chicago, Minneapolis, Denver, Seattle, San Francisco, San Diego, Austin, Dallas, Atlanta and many more. In traditional revival fashion, once the music starts, this new guard of young, genre-defying, musicians keep it rolling, teaming in and out through each others’ sets until the final farewell of the night.

THE REVIVAL TOUR 2009 will include: CHUCK RAGAN (of Hot Water Music), Jim Ward (of Sparta and Sleepercar), Kevin Seconds (Nov. 3-5 only), Frank Turner, Tim Barry (of Avail), Dave Hause (of The Loved Ones), Jenny Owen Youngs, Possessed by Paul James, Jon Snodgrass and Chad Price (of Drag The River), Joey Cape (of Lagwagon), Bob Lucas, Austin Lucas, Audra Mae, Tom Cook, Steven Brodsky (of Cave In), Water Tower Bucket Boys, Anderson Family Bluegrass Band, members of The Zydepunks performing acoustic, Jon Gaunt (of Whiskey & Co) on fiddle, Digger Barnes on the upright bass and more.

Last year’s inaugural REVIVAL TOUR featured Tim Barry of Avail, Ben Nichols of Lucero, Tom Gabel of Against Me! and Jesse Malin, among many others. “As artists we go on tour together and then in the final days of the tour–after everyone is familiar with one another–you’re playing songs with your tour-mates and having a blast,” states founder CHUCK RAGAN. “I thought, why can’t we get together, rehearse before the tour starts and perform together during the entire tour?” RAGAN says of his inspiration for THE REVIVAL TOUR. “Some of our set for that night’s show is chosen in advance, but everything else evolves organically onstage,” he elaborates. “It’s truly one of the most special tours I’ve ever been a part of.”

Likewise, Jim Ward adds, “It’s a real joy to be included on the revival tour this year. The idea of going on the road with some old friends and some soon-to-be friends, learning new songs, playing my songs with other folks is just a dream, to be honest. If you could add up the collective years on the road between the lot of us, and mix in the stories to be told, as well as the stories that will be made, it just seems almost overwhelming, almost too good to be true–I seriously cannot wait.” British folkster Frank Turner, who will take a second turn on the trek, adds, “I did a few dates on Revival last year and I can honestly say, it was closer to my vision of how a music tour should be than any other I’ve ever been part of, as well as involving medically inadvisable levels of fun. Can’t wait to get involved again this year.”
