rebel inc. is an intense energetic political rock band formed on the outskirts of Detroit, MI, now residing in Baltimore, MD. The original members, Kevin(guitar) and Adam(vocals), relocated with another Detroiter, Brian(drums), and found their bass sound in Benny, an Iowa native who also moved to the Charm City. They are known for their high energy live shows, thought provoking political lyrics, and powerful guitar rhythms. The resulting sound is a mixture of rock, rap, alternative, funk and heavy metal. You can find their You Tube channel here.
With their self-released first EP in March, 2009, and the positive feedback from industry professionals and listeners alike, rebel inc. is movin’ up the charts. Every song on the album has been played on terrestrial radio in multiple states in the USA, as well as in Canada and Australia. The album has had good reviews across the globe, too, including Germany and Italy.
The group toured US military bases under the sponsorship of Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) in 2008, who also sponsored Rage Against the Machine for a stop on the same tour, in Denver, CO, at the Democratic National Convention.
rebel inc.’s latest recording “Killin’ The Future” is being placed on a compilation album with Tom Morello, Rise Against, Anti-Flag, Ryan Harvey, and many more great artists to benefit the Civilian-Soldier Alliance. The album, “A Soundtrack For Refusal,” is due out in June of 2010.
rebel inc. is a must-see live act, for although their recordings are refined, they do not capture the band’s true passionate sound and their ability to transfer their passion into the crowd with their explosive stage presence.
