Silver Wrapper and React announce that Rebelution will play Chicago at Congress Theater on Saturday, April 20, 2013! Last year, the Santa Barbara, CA based band Rebelution released "Peace of Mind" as a multi-length triple album which includes Acoustic and Dub versions of every song. The album debuted at #13 on the Billboard Top 200, #1 Reggae and #1 Independent albums as well as #4 on the iTunes overall album chart. "Peace of Mind" marked the first time Rebelution has expanded beyond their usual self-production enlisting producers Michael Goldwasser (Easy Star All-Stars), Amp Live (Zion-I), Yeti Beats (Kool Keith, George Clinton), Keith Armstrong and Errol Brown (Stephen, Ziggy, Damian, and Bob Marley). The album builds upon the band’s signature style while venturing into new musical genres from the lush strings incorporated into the gentle "Route Around" to the driving guitar and synths throughout "Lady In White".
Early 2013 will see Rebelution cross the United States yet again on their annual "Spring Greens Tour", with a stop in Chicago on Saturday, April 20 at the Congress Theater.
Rebelution has developed into a front-runner for grassroots, independent and tour driven music groups. Originally formed in 2004, members Eric Rachmany (vocals / guitar), Rory Carey (keyboards), Wesley Finley (drums), and Marley D. Williams (bass) met in college, while residing in Isla Vista, a popular beachside community in Santa Barbara. New Orleans saxophonist and multi-instrumentalist Khris Royal was recently added to the group. It was there that the seeds to Rebelution’s future were planted creating inspiring and engaging music that would leave their listeners with the sense that they have the power to make this world a better place. The band continuously tours across the USA, have ventured to South America, Guam, Hawaii, Aruba, New Zealand and Europe, and performed at Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits among others.
Doors @ 7:30pm. Show @ 8:30pm. Ages 18+.
J Boog & Hot Rain will open the show.
Tickets go on sale at Silver Wrapper Ticketing 2/1/13 at 10AM CST!
