DEBUT ALBUM - DIVIDED WE FALL
Respect my existence, or expect my resistance!
Rebel Rampage was born on January 21st, 2017, the day after the presidential inauguration and the day of the Women’s March, the largest protest in American history. With fury and immediacy, Graham Czach (vocals, bass) wrote the flagship song “Resistance March” in defiance of the new rogue administration, whose constant output of disingenuous rhetoric fuels the content for what now is an entire album full of messages for the masses. Graham felt that resistance was absolutely necessary, and he made it his duty to fight this oppression with powerful music and inspirational words to transcend politics and inspire action.
With Dylan McGee Jones on guitar and Punky Balfour on drums, this powerhouse trio delivers heavy and unrelenting riffs anchored by bombastic ‘machine gun’ drumming. Graham delivers the message through lyrical originality and prowess, with high soaring melodic vocals reminiscent of the great sing-screamers Chris Cornell (Soundgarden) and Layne Staley (Alice In Chains). The ever-expanding list of topical issues addressed range from immigration and women rights to free press and the failings of the U.S. health care system. RR feels that rock music recalling the likes of Led Zeppelin, Soundgarden, and Rage Against The Machine in a current sound and format provides the best framework for this kind of content.
The album was recorded at the famed Rancho De La Luna studios in Joshua Tree which was featured in the Foo Fighter's documentary "Sonic Highways", where they recorded a song with Joe Walsh. It has also been home to Queens of the Stone Age, Kyuss, Arctic Monkeys, Eagles of Death Metal and others that have recorded some timeless music at this legendary studio.
RR definitely cements their place among the greats with one of the greatest bombshell protest rock albums of all time utilizing modern production techniques and musicianship while maintaining raw emotion and lyricism steeped in the socioeconomic struggles of the 21st century. Whether it is marching in protest, calling your elected representatives, drafting and signing petitions, voting, creating an open social dialogue, or community organization; this music will be a rallying cry for your struggle as Rebel Rampage stands in solidarity with you.
Rebel Rampage is a force to reckon with! Watch out for their campaign and tour supporting the release of this amazing rock album. Listen to the album loud and in charge and go see them live, you will not be disappointed, guaranteed.
