Originally formed in Santa Barbara, CA in 2004, Rebelution’s strong DIY mentality, relentless touring and deep connection to their fan base via social media, has led them to being one of the best-selling reggae artists on the planet. Since the 2007 release of Courage to Grow, the band’s first full-length album, Rebelution’s music has been praised for its crafty melodies, socially-conscious lyrics and savvy musicianship. Courage to Grow was selected as the iTunes Editors Choice for Best Reggae Album, went to #4 on Billboard’s Reggae charts, and the track “Safe and Sound” was in rotation at powerhouse radio stations such as San Francisco’s Live 105, San Diego’s 91X and KROQ in Los Angeles.
Bright Side of Life, the band’s second album (2009), took the #1 spot on iTunes in the Reggae music genre, charted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Reggae Albums, and #54 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums charts. With the band’s 2012 album having debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Reggae and Independent charts, and at #13 on the Top 200 Albums chart, Rebelution will follow up with Count Me In, their fourth full-length release, on June 10.
The album will be released on Rebelution’s own label, 87 Music, in partnership with Easy Star Records.

Rebelution chose the album’s title as each member is a strong believer in the sense of community and collaboration. “Over the past ten years as an independent band,” Rachmany explained, “we have felt a strong connection to the many people who have been incredibly supportive, and could not be more thankful to be a part of such a like-minded, positive and inspiring community.” While the music and lyrical content varies on Count Me In, the album’s11 tracks provide positive inspiration, encouraging fans to create a pro-active and optimistic impact on society and life. “A lot of what we hear every day is that money measures success,” added Rachmany. “This new album is a reminder to spread love and positivity to the people around us – these are the true measures of success.”
