Grammy-nominated reggae/rock band Rebelution have released their 6th studio album Free Rein (87 Music/Easy Star Records). PRESS HERE to purchase & HERE to stream. The 12 tracks on the LP fuse Rebelution’s classic reggae sound with genres spanning R&B, rock, jazz and folk; this is Rebelution’s most diverse album to date. The collection of songs shines a spotlight on the band’s evocative songwriting, incendiary playing and timely lyrical commentary. The bold move from the powerhouse band proves their artistry and experimental prowess, though their signature laidback Summery reggae sound still shines through (thanks in part to collaborations with acclaimed Jamaican producers Don Corleon [Rihanna, Sean Paul] and Winta James [Damian Marley, Chronixx]).
“Reggae-influenced group Rebelution are on the upswing, lifting the hearts and spirits of many all over the world through their music with acoustic, R&B, jazz and rock influences.” – Billboard
“Reggae band Rebelution have become full-on stars in the genre. ‘Free Rein,’ the band’s sixth effort, is a collection that showcases the band’s comfort with diverse styles and tempos.”– Forbes
Rebelution (singer/guitarist/lyricist Eric Rachmany, keyboardist Rory Carey, drummer Wesley Finley, and bassist Marley D. Williams) formed in Isla Vista in 2004. After their debut album Courage to Grow reached #4 on the Billboard Reggae Chart, there was no stopping them. Their 2012 release, Peace of Mind, debuted at #13 on the Billboard Top 200, hit #1 on both the Reggae and Independent Charts, and was the #4 iTunes album overall. 2014’s Count Me In continued the momentum, entering the Reggae Chart at #1 and the Billboard Overall Chart at #14. Then came the Grammy-nominated album Falling Into Place and the Rebelution concert experience, Live At Red Rocks. The band boasts an impressive 85 million+ spins on their Top 5 Spotify tracks alone, and will continue playing sold-out shows and taking coveted headlining slots at some of the nation’s top festivals this season.
