REBEL INC. is an intense blend of metal, punk, hip-hop, and alternative rock music, formed on the outskirts of Detroit, MI, now residing in Baltimore, MD. They are known for their raw, passionate, and explosive stage presence, powerful guitar rhythms, and thought provoking social and political lyrics. These characteristics put them in the realm of bands such as Rage Against the Machine, System of a Down, Korn, Rob Zombie, TOOL, Papa Roach, Linkin Park, and groups of this sort. Their sound also bridges the gaps to Rise Against, Anti-Flag, Metallica, Hollywood Undead, Three Days Grace, Five Finger Death Punch, and Breaking Benjamin.
Their self-released debut EP has had every song played on terrestrial radio on more than 40 stations in the USA, as well as Canada, Australia, and the UK. It has rave reviews across the globe, from many radio DJ’s, and magazines, including Germany and Italy. In fact, HELLO MUSIC says REBEL INC. is “On the cusp of greatness!” and Kendra Beltran from Bryan Farrish Radio Promotion says, “They would fair well with the commercial crowd at the Van’s Warped Tour, the metal heads at Ozzfest, and the eclectic crowd at Coachella.” Wisconsin radio DJ Gary Schmaltz calls the album “A national treasure.” REBEL INC.’s music was added to the PANDORA RADIO library in the winter of 2011. The sophomore album is in the works to be released in the spring of 2012, and the first 4 singles released have already received radio play.
REBEL INC. joined some elite names as their song, “Killin’ The Future,” has been released on the compilation album “A Soundtrack For Refusal” with Tom Morello, Rise Against, Anti-Flag, Strike Anywhere, Jim Page, Ryan Harvey, and many more great artists to benefit the Civilian-Soldier Alliance. The band has also had songs placed in a few films, and has provided support for national artists such as Seether(sold out), Fuel, Anti-Flag, Cold, Kottonmouth Kings, Otep, Hed PE, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus(sold out), Psychostick, Green Jelly, and Nashville Pussy.
REBEL INC. is currently unsigned, and touring as much as possible through the mid-Atlantic, Midwest, and along the east coast on their own dollar. The response has been extremely positive in every city along the tour route, and the fans are increasing rapidly. Radio DJ’s, venue owners, production managers, booking agents, music reviewers, sound engineers, and most importantly, THE LISTENERS, have given the band great feedback on the live show as well as the album. The band played it’s largest show at the 2011 Seattle Hempfest in August, with the Kottonmouth Kings and over 100,000 people in attendance.
In order to truly EXPERIENCE this band, you must see them LIVE.
