REBEL INC. is an intense blend of metal, punk, hip-hop, and alternative rock music, born in the outskirts of Detroit "Rock City", MI, and rising to prominence out of Baltimore, MD. They are known for their raw, passionate, and explosive sound and 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 music 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 45 stations in the USA, Canada, Australia, and the UK. It has rave reviews across the globe, from many radio DJ's and magazines, including Germany and Italy. 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. was named ReverbNation's "Featured Band" for June of 2011, and their music was added to the PANDORA RADIO library in the winter of the same year. The sophomore album is in the works to be released in the late spring or early summer of 2012, and the first 4 singles released have already received radio play.
REBEL INC. joined elite names as their song, "Killin' The Future," was released on the compilation album "A Soundtrack For Refusal" with Tom Morello, Rise Against, Anti-Flag, and Strike Anywhere to benefit the Civilian-Soldier Alliance. The band has also had songs placed in a 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), Straight Line Stitch, 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 music. The band played it's largest show at the 2011 Seattle Hempfest, with the Kottonmouth Kings and over 100,000 people in attendance.
In order to truly EXPERIENCE this band, you must see them LIVE. [+]
