NEW YORK, NY — Following months of anticipation, critically acclaimed Austin, TX indie-Americana duo JAMESTOWN REVIVAL– Jonathan Clay and Zach Chance – release their second full-length album, The Education of A Wandering Man [Republic Records], in stores and at all digital retailers today.
Get it HERE.
On the musical evolution towards The Education of a Wandering Man the band noted: “(Our last album) Utah, took us far and wide, but on our restless minds the entire time was chapter two. We took the journey, the road travelled, and the wisdom gained and we did our best to put it to song. Another snapshot and another page in what we hope is a journey you'll continue to share with us.”
Jamestown Revival recently premiered the music video for “Love Is A Burden” this week which was inspired by legendary nature photographer Ansel Adams. The video also gives nods back to their previous single “California (Cast Iron Soul).” It’s a breathtaking and brilliant visual companion to the song.

Adding to their busy schedule, last week - for the first time on television - the band performed their hit single “Love Is A Burden” on CONAN. They also joined Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats for a sold out show at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles- receiving a standing ovation for their performance. All of this has led to “Love Is A Burden” reaching Top 25 at AAA radio and continues to storm up the charts.
The band is currently gearing up to head back out on the road for their “Wandering Man Tour,”crisscrossing the country in support of the album. They added a final date November 10 at the El Rey in Los Angeles. Check out all dates below. Tickets can be purchased here.

In 2014, JAMESTOWN REVIVAL emerged with their breakthrough full-length album UTAH. Blending literary storytelling, rock ‘n’ roll grit, indie spirit, and country soul, iTunes crowned UTAH the “Best of 2014: Singer-Songwriter Album of the Year.” With the band’s popular anthem, “California (Cast Iron Soul)” leading the way, everyone from Rolling Stone and KCRW to the Wall Street Journal and The Boston Globe featured the band. JAMESTOWN REVIVAL then made their national television debut with rollicking performances on Conan, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, and Last Call With Carson Daly, and brought a whole lot of live ruckus to festivals such as Coachella, Stagecoach, Austin City Limits, Bonnaroo, and Bottlerock Festival, among others.
