The Revivalists have released a brand new single, “All My Friends“, marking their first release of new music since 2015’s Men Amongst Mountains. The New Orleans eight-piece skyrocketed to massive success in 2017 with their hit single “Wish I Knew You”, which hit #1 at Alternative and Adult Alternative Radio, reached the Top 15 at Hot AC, and spent 9 consecutive weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart—though they’ve been mainstays in the contemporary jam scene for the better part of a decade. While fans have been eagerly awaiting the new record for quite some time now, The Revivalists have been road-testing new material over the last several years. Now, the band is officially ready to present the studio versions, as well as never-before-heard tunes, on a new album, their fourth full-length studio release, due out this fall.First up is “All My Friends”, a groove-filled anthem praising friendships over heartbreaks. The soulfully empowering lyrics will make you miss your 20s while also inspiring you to live life like you’ll never grow up. Striking, sharp, and soulful, with swaggering piano and boisterous horns, “All My Friends” introduces the band’s next chapter with confidence and charisma. Bump this:The Revivalists – “All My Friends”“All My Friends,” produced by GRAMMY-nominated producer/songwriter Dave Bassett (Elle King, Vance Joy) and co-written by Bassett and frontman David Shaw, signals the band’s newfound depth and ambition.For the first time, The Revivalists recorded and co-wrote with multiple producers and writers, enlisting the talents of Dave Cobb (Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapleton), Andrew Dawson (Kanye West, Fun., Sleigh Bells), and Bassett for sessions in New Orleans as well as Nashville, where they recorded at the iconic RCA Studio B, soaking up the aura of one of the most storied studios in music.Representing a vast swath of the country and defying regional pigeonholes, David Shaw’s (lead vocals, guitar) roots are in the Rust Belt, while Zack Feinberg (guitar), Ed Williams (pedal steel guitar) and George Gekas (bass) hail from the Tri-State area and Michael Girardot (keyboard, trumpet) and Rob Ingraham (saxophone) come from the Southwest. Andrew Campanelli (drums) cut his teeth in the D.C. scene, and newcomer PJ Howard (drums, percussion) made his bones in Chicago. Since forming in New Orleans, the group quietly ground out one gig, song, and album at a time.The Revivalists are currently on the road and gearing up for a fall tour full of festival dates and headline shows, which will include a special show at Red Rocks on September 13th, a New Orleans performance at Voodoo Music and Arts Experience on October 26th, and David Shaw’s 3rd Annual Big River Get Down at RiversEdge Amphitheatre in his hometown of Hamilton, OH. Shaw’s annual festival has quickly become a not-to-be-missed music and community event.Head to the band’s official website for more information.THE REVIVALISTS 2018 TOUR DATES:August 3 Lowell, MA @ Lowell Summer Music Series at Boarding Park HouseAugust 4 Freeport, ME @ LL Bean Discovery ParkAugust 5 Hampton Beach, NH @ Hampton Beach CasinoAugust 17 Portsmouth, VA @ Union Bank & Trust PavilionAugust 18 Cockeysville, MD @ Hot August Music FestivalAugust 19 Vienna, VA @ Wolf TrapAugust 25 Cleveland, OH @ Incuya Music FestivalSeptember 1 Chicago, IL @ North Coast Music FestivalSeptember 8 Hamilton, OH @ Big River Get Down at RiversEdge AmphitheaterSeptember 13 Morrison, CO @ Red Rocks AmphitheatreSeptember 15 Atlanta, GA @ Music Midtown 2018 at Piedmont ParkSeptember 22 East Aurora, NY @ Borderland Music FestivalSeptember 27 Louisville, KY @ Iroquois AmphitheatreSeptember 28 Indianapolis, IN @ Garfield ParkSeptember 29 Kansas City, MO @ KC Power & LightOctober 2 Pittsburgh, PA @ Stage AEOctober 3 Columbus, OH @ Express LiveOctober 5 Black Mountain, NC @ Marcus King Band Family Reunion @ PigsahOctober 6 Bloomingburg, NY @ Catskills Wine & Food FestivalOctober 20 Dallas, TX @ Toyota Stadium National Soccer Hall of FameOctober 26 New Orleans, LA @ Voodoo Music & Arts ExperienceOctober 28 Live Oak, FL @ Suwanee HulaweenView All Tour Dates
New Delhi: Mahendra Singh Dhoni is one of the most successful cricketers in India. He was also the most sought after sportsman by marketers for brand endorsements – from consumer durable to automobile, retail and life insurance. When he retired from international test cricket in mid-2014, there was not much impact on his brand value. In 2016 Forbes list, he featured at the 10th spot and his net worth was around $31 million and brand endorsements formed a large part of it. He used to charge between Rs 8 crore and Rs 12 crore for each endorsement. His total annual earnings from brand endorsements were Rs 120 crore to Rs 150 crore at that time, according to estimates. What will be the impact of his retirement from ODI cricket? Once a player is not seen in the field his value goes down drastically. This is exactly what happened when Sachin Tendulkar retired. A TAM AdEx data showed that the number of brands endorsed by Tendulkar dropped from 12 to four in one and a half months. It means that his income dropped at least proportionately if not more. Can we expect similar decline in income for Dhoni? After all, companies like young emerging stars.

Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on February 19, 2012 at 12:00 pm Comments Tommy Palasek’s confidence in Syracuse’s attack never waned.After the Orange yielded two early goals on man-down situations to start the game, Palasek knew it would take one simple spark to overcome the adversity early in the first quarter.‘You just have to have a short memory with it,’ Palasek said. ‘They score two goals on you and get out on you quickly. There’s nothing you can do about it. You have to move on, and I think you just have to go back out there and remember the confidence we have in our offense and work on executing our plays and our sets.’And with a calm determination, No. 7 Syracuse (1-0) found its scoring rhythm and never looked back. The Orange scored 10 unanswered goals, including six in the second quarter, to breeze past Albany (0-1) 12-7 in front of 5,805 in the Carrier Dome on Sunday. As the Orange defense stymied Albany, holding them scoreless for more than 40 minutes, Syracuse’s offense picked up the rest and overwhelmed the Great Danes.Albany outplayed the Orange early on, winning four of the first five faceoffs and outshooting SU by four in the opening quarter. And less than seven minutes into the game, the Great Danes put pressure on SU to fire back.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAfter SU defender David Hamlin sent Albany attack Joe Resetarits on his back near the SU goal, both he and fellow defender Matt Harris were called for illegal body checks in the scrum. The Great Danes took advantage of their man-up situation and scored two goals within eight seconds.‘We’ve tried to be competitive because we haven’t had the success in the faceoff that we’ve wanted,’ head coach John Desko said, ‘so some of that comes from working a little extra hard to try and get the ball, and Albany could have had more of a lead I think in the first quarter because of the penalties.’But SU stuck to its game plan, and after three early penalties, the Orange finally found some chances at the net.Hakeem Lecky scored Syracuse’s first goal on a contested shot from the right side of the field to pull SU within one.And with a little more than three minutes remaining in the first quarter, Palasek found the spark he was looking for.As he held the ball behind the cage, midfielder JoJo Marasco raced off the sidelines in the middle of a line change. He filled the empty space right in front of the goal, and Palasek connected with Marasco, who put the ball in the net in one swooping motion to tie the game at 2-2.‘We work on getting open on those chances when we get opportunities, and I saw a chance there,’ Marasco said. ‘Tommy was smart enough to hold the ball and not rush it and give me some more time to get clearance on my man, and he was able to put the ball on my stick, and he made it pretty easy for me to shoot it.’And once the Orange was at full strength, Albany had trouble finding answers for SU’s offense. Five different midfielders scored goals in the first half, and SU went into halftime with an 8-2 lead. Marasco scored all three of his goals in the first half, Ryan Barber added two scores and Lecky, Luke Cometti and Scott Loy each scored one.‘We were dodging from up top, and they must have had a game plan going in, probably not knowing a lot of our middies,’ Desko said. ‘They weren’t quick to go to them. I’m guessing they wanted to see if we could dodge to score, and fortunately, the guys did in the first half.’ By the time SU stormed back to take control of the game, the Great Danes couldn’t recover. When Albany finally cracked the defense early in the fourth quarter for its first goal since the opening minutes, the Orange had already secured a 10-2 lead.With a balanced attack highlighted by eight different goal scorers, Syracuse put the Great Danes away.‘That’s huge because they’re going to have to start sliding earlier,’ Marasco said. ‘And as long as we dodge really hard and start throwing it behind and working other plays, it let’s the offense relax and settle down, and then we can trust in each other and start opening up plays for one another.’[email protected]
Published on April 16, 2016 at 6:12 pm Contact Jon: [email protected] | @jmettus No. 9 Syracuse (7-4, 2-2 Atlantic Coast) clinched a berth in the conference tournament by beating No. 11 North Carolina (6-5, 2-1), 13-7, at the Carrier Dome on Saturday.The Orange had lost four of its last five games coming into the match and was 0-3 against teams ranked No. 11 or better, but broke the streak with the six-goal win over the Tar Heels.Here are three observations from the game.Holding onSyracuse ran out to a commanding 8-2 lead over North Carolina in the first half. But a four-goal third quarter for the Tar Heels cut the Orange’s lead to two.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn three of the SU’s last five games it had blown second half leads on the way to losses. It was up by two to Cornell on Tuesday and fell in overtime. The Orange had a five-goal lead at one point when it played Duke on March 26 and dropped the game in overtime. Syracuse had a two-goal lead in the fourth quarter against Johns Hopkins on March 19 with and blew that one, too, losing in overtime.But on Saturday, the Orange avoided the trend of dropping games and held on. Jordan Evans found the back of the net early in the fourth quarter to end UNC’s four-goal run and Nick Weston scored with just under seven minutes left to stretch the lead to four.The Orange took control of the fourth quarter to outscore UNC, 4-1, in the final frame.Stuck in limboSyracuse goalie Evan Molloy’s job was still in limbo prior to the UNC game. He had allowed 16 goals and made 13 saves in his first two starts after taking over for beginning-of-the-year starter Warren Hill.Through the first half on Saturday, Molloy turned in the best half of his career. Against the fourth-highest scoring offense in the country, Molloy made five saves and let in just two goals. Twice he passed the ball quickly up the field, which led to transition goals for the Orange.None of Molloy’s success from the first half carried into the third quarter, though. Almost all the shots that the Tar Heels took wound up in the back of the net.His three saves in the fourth quarter, though, were enough to help stave off the Tar Heels comeback.SurgeMidfielder Sergio Salcido once again led the Orange offensive attack with a team-high five points (three goals and two assists). He’s now second on the team with 32 points.Salcido netted two of the Orange’s first three goals using his speed to get around defenders. When the North Carolina defense adjusted to slide faster when Salcido had the ball, he dumped it off and found open players for assists. Comments Facebook Twitter Google+
