REBEL INC. is an intense fusion of metal, punk, hip-hop, and alternative rock music, formed on the outskirts of Detroit, MI, now residing in Baltimore, MD. This four piece is 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, TOOL, Disturbed, Rob Zombie, 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, and Breaking Benjamin.
Their self-released debut EP has had every song played on terrestrial radio on more than 20 stations in the USA, as well as Canada, and Australia. 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.” These reviews seem to be confirmed as Pandora Radio has accepted their music to begin airing in the summer of 2011. The sophomore album is in the works to be released in the spring of 2012.
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), Anti-Flag, Cold, Otep, 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.
In order to truly EXPERIENCE this band, you must see them LIVE.
