Santa Barbara’s Rebelution have forged an indelible place in the realm of reggae/rock over the past decade. Five studio albums in, they’ve crafted a niche for themselves thanks to their unmistakably original sound and vocalist Eric Rachmany’s lyrics and vocal style.
On June 15, they’ll release Free Rein, their sixth full-length to date. Its first single, the uplifting and empowering “Celebrate,” can be heard below, via Spotify:
While Rebelution have risen among the ranks of the reggae/rock scene thanks to their singular sound, they’re no strangers to experimentation — which they’re trying on the new record, per the press release:
Free Rein takes experimental leaps, welcoming old fans and new audiences alike. The band teamed up with acclaimed Jamaican producers Don Corleon (Rihanna, Sean Paul) and Winta James (Damian Marley, Chronixx) on three of the 12 exciting new tracks.
