Bio

REBEL INC. is this Generations Premier Protest Band! Having toured independently for over 4 years, REBEL INC. is driven by their passion to spread the music and message, and is no doubt the hardest working band in the movement today. They have been recognized by industry professionals and have shared stages with some of the biggest names in music today. If you get a chance to see rebel inc. live, you will share an experience that tens of thousands of people have enjoyed all across the country and have described as "absolutely captivating".

rebel inc. is an intense 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 Keni, a charm city native.

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.

They self-released their first EP in March 2009 and the feedback from industry professionals and listeners alike, is very positive.  Every song on the album has been played on terrestrial radio in multiple states in the USA, as well as Canada and Australia.  The album has also had good reviews across the globe, 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 (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 their recordings do not capture the band's true sound and their ability to transfer their passion into the crowd with their explosive stage presence.

The following paragraph is the opinion of the album by Kendra Beltran of Bryan Farrish Radio Promotion.

"Rebel Inc.’s self-titled, rebel inc., is high energy and not to be taken lightly. Their sound is much like that of Rage Against The Machine; a mix of heavy instrumentation paired with anti-political inspired lyrics. Rebel Inc. has an intense beat to their music that would make their audience breakout into a mosh pit instantaneously. They would fair well with the commercial crowd at the Van’s Warped Tour, pulling the same crowd as Anti-Flag. However, because of their Rage Against The Machine essence, their style would play well with the crowds of metal heads at Ozzfest and the eclectic crowd at Coachella. Their music is versatile and has a mass appeal to anyone and everyone that has a stand to take on political issues musically."
