REBEL RAMPAGE Announce Midwest Summer Tour and Issue Rallying Cry with New Album, Divided We Fall
"Rebel Rampage is on the one, and their brain and informativity is the ammunition for the gun! Check the music, check the record, check the knowledge!" - Angelo Moore (Fishbone)
“Melding metal, punk and funk together, the power trio’s latest video “Red Star” features the legendary Angelo Moore of Fishbone on sax and general funkiness.” -Buzzbands LA
NEW YORK, NY -- Los Angeles protest rock power trio, Rebel Rampage, announce a Midwest Summer Tour in support of their debut album Divided We Fall. They are partnering with A Voice For The Innocent on the tour to raise funds and awareness for the org, a non-profit community dedicated to the support of those affected by rape and sexual abuse. Check out the band’s tour dates here. Chicago native Graham Czach, lead singer/bassist, and Milwaukee native Dylan McGee Jones, guitarist who also plays with Gallant, will be joined by Gorillaz drummer Gabe Wallace, also from Chicago, for special hometown shows on this tour.
This past year has seen great opportunities for the band including performances with Angelo Moore (Fishbone), who also appears on the album, a partnership with the ACLU and performance at their 100 Year National Tour event in Grand Park, Los Angeles opening for Tom Morello (Rage Against The Machine), and features on reputable media outlets including LATV National Television, Loudwire, Buzzbands LA, idobi Radio, Pure Grain Audio, among others. They also won The Deli Magazine Los Angeles “Artist of the Month” (November/December 2018) and are currently planning new content for 2019. Rebel Rampage is endorsed by internationally recognized music companies D’Addario, Guild, VOX/Blackstar Amps, Eden Bass Amps, and Paiste cymbals.
Rebel Rampage are on a mission to galvanize and inspire the public to engage in the democratic process by upholding civil and constitutional rights, and enforce accountability for the actions of those in power. They rally behind the motto, “United We Stand, Divided We Fall! Respect my existence, or expect my resistance!” Front man Graham Czach elaborates, “This project was born out of feeling helpless and hopeless with the current abomination of an administration and government especially Trump. It's our reaction to the outrageous corruption and darkness that has fallen over this country and is dividing it, hence the name of the album. Ultimately, it’s up to the us, we the people, to decide if we take action and unite to restore common sense and decency, or further the divide.”
Divided We Fall is a collaboration of industry heavy-hitters, and its collection of politically charged and controversial songs are a fiery addition to L.A.’s historic lineage of protest music. In an effort to bring the creative process to life, Rebel Rampage retreated to the famed Rancho De La Luna recording studio in Joshua Tree, CA with owner Dave Catching (Eagles of Death Metal, Queens of the Stone Age) and engineer Jon Russo (Mojave Lords). Talented L.A. natives Angelo Moore (Fishbone) and Emily Armstrong (Dead Sara) guest star on the tracks “Red Star” and “I Am The Power” respectively. Vocals were tracked at Attic Recording in Nashville, TN with engineer Greg Magers (Lupe Fiasco, Umphrey's McGee). Four-time Grammy Award winner Adam Kasper (Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Soundgarden) mixed the album at Studio X in Seattle, WA, and all mastering was done by Grammy Award winner Reuben Cohen at Lurssen Mastering in Burbank, CA.
Divided We Fall was preceded by the single and video releases of the timely “Immigration Man” and “Red Star (feat. Angelo Moore)”. The latest video release for “Scorched Earth” is dedicated to all the victims and first responders of the disastrous effects of climate change world-wide and specifically, the CA wildfires.
CD and vinyl copies of Divided We Fall, as well as Rebel Rampage t-shirts, posters and stickers are available direct from the band at rebelrampage.com.
About Rebel Rampage
Band Mission Statement: "Armed with words and music to resist oppression by the government and inspire change for equality and justice."
Rebel Rampage was born on January 21st, 2017 in Los Angeles, 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.
