California’s Rebelution will be bringing their chilled reggae-roots beats to Australia for the bands very first Australian tour.
Beginning as reggae enthusiasts in the college town of Santa Barbara, Rebelution quickly grew to the success story they have become, playing over 100 shows a year around the world, owning the stage at major festivals and selling out renowned venues such as Red Rocks and the Santa Barbara Bowl. The most impressive part is that they have achieved all of this without backing from any major label or media push.
Rebelution’s latest album Count Me In (2014) debuted on the Billboard Top 200 at #14 and marked the band’s third consecutive #1 Reggae Album. Despite all the accolades, it is all about the music for the band as guitarist/singer Eric Rachmany explains; “Rebelution is a great example of four friends who got together to play music for the fun of it, and still do that today. We just play music that we really enjoy.”
