Rebelution's Good Vibes Summer Tour Kicks Off

Article Contributed by Press Here Publicity | Published on Thursday, August 5, 2021

Rebelution – one of the most successful reggae bands of the 21st century – will kick off their Good Vibes Summer Tour in Fresno, California TONIGHT and weave their way throughout the US until October, making stops in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Austin, Atlanta, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Boston, Asbury Park, New York City, Washington DC and more (full routing below). They will be joined by special guests Kabaka Pyramid, Keznamdi and DJ Mackle on select dates. Tickets are limited and fans can purchase by visiting www.rebelutionmusic.com.

Earlier this summer, the band released their highly anticipated seventh studio album, In The Moment, via the their own 87 Music Label and NYC-based Easy Star Records. PRESS HERE to stream/purchase and HERE to watch the official videos for singles “2020 Vision” and “All or Nothing.”
 
Recorded remotely in the midst of the pandemic, In The Moment is deliberate and wide-ranging, infusing the quartet’s soulful, exhilarating brand of modern reggae with addictive pop hooks, alt-rock grit, and hip-hop grooves. The performances are bold and self-assured, and the production is equally ambitious, drawing on swirling reverb and trippy delay to create an immersive sonic universe that’s both futuristic and vintage all at once. Strip away the intoxicating atmospherics, though, and what remains is a work of profound reflection, a probing, revelatory meditation that balances joy and introspection in equal measure as the band contemplates the meaning of time and how to spend what precious little we have.

“We wanted to make this the most diverse sounding record we could,” said Eric Rachmany. That sonic diversity also gets a boost from the album’s all-star cast of special guests, which includes Jamaican artists Kabaka Pyramid, Keznamdi, and dancehall star Busy Signal, as well as American soul singer Durand Jones. Ultimately, though, the record is pure Rebelution, a powerhouse collection of songs that challenges our perceptions and pushes us to live each day to the fullest; inviting fans to sit back, slow down, and live In The Moment.
 
Founded in Isla Vista, CA, the members of Rebelution (Eric Rachmany, Rory Carey, Wesley Finley and Marley D. Williams), have followed their instincts to remarkable success since the release of their breakout 2007 debut, Courage To Grow. In 2009, the band topped the Billboard Reggae Chart for the first of what would be five consecutive #1 records; in 2014, they boasted the highest-selling reggae release of the year; and in 2017, they garnered a GRAMMY nomination for Best Reggae Album. Relix hailed the group as “a leading voice in their scene,” while Billboard raved that the band “weaves hypnotic threads of alt-rock and pop, retro-funk, blues, dub, [and] even traditional Middle Eastern strains into their bubbling, one-drop reggae groove.” Rebelution’s transcendent live performances, meanwhile, have taken on legendary status, earning the group sell-out headline shows everywhere from Red Rocks to The Greek Theatre along with festival slots at Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, ACL, Glastonbury and even their own festival in Jamaica. By the time the COVID-19 pandemic brought things to a screeching halt, the band had been grinding it out on the road for more than a decade-and-a-half.
