Rebelution – one of the most successful reggae bands of the 21st century – have announced their annual Good Vibes Summer Tour for 2022, scheduled to kick off on June 1st at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre in Florida with special guests Steel Pulse (select dates), DENM and DJ Mackle. The tour will weave its way throughout the US until late August, making stops in Atlanta, Washington, D.C., Philly, Boston, New York City, Baltimore, Chicago, Austin, Berkeley, Salt Lake City and more. Full routing can be found below, and more dates will be announced soon. Pre-sales start today, and the public on-sale begins Friday, December 10 at 10am local time. For tickets and pre-sale details, please visit www.rebelutionmusic.com.

The band’s latest album, In The Moment (released earlier this year via their own 87 Music Label and NYC-based Easy Star Records), is deliberate and wide-ranging, infusing the quartet’s soulful, exhilarating brand of modern reggae with addictive pop hooks, alt-rock grit, and hip-hop grooves. The performances are bold and self-assured, and the production is equally ambitious, drawing on swirling reverb and trippy delay to create an immersive sonic universe that’s both futuristic and vintage all at once. Strip away the intoxicating atmospherics, though, and what remains is a work of profound reflection, a probing, revelatory meditation that balances joy and introspection in equal measure as the band contemplates the meaning of time and how to spend what precious little we have. The album’s sonic diversity gets a boost from an all-star cast of special guests, which includes Jamaican artists Kabaka Pyramid, Keznamdi, and dancehall star Busy Signal, as well as American soul singer Durand Jones. Ultimately, though, the record is pure Rebelution, a powerhouse collection of songs that challenges our perceptions and pushes us to live each day to the fullest; inviting fans to sit back, slow down, and live in the moment.

Founded in Isla Vista, CA, the members of Rebelution (Eric Rachmany, Rory Carey, Wesley Finley and Marley D. Williams), have followed their instincts to remarkable success since the release of their breakout 2007 debut, Courage To Grow. In 2009, the band topped the Billboard Reggae Chart for the first of what would be five consecutive #1 records; in 2014, they boasted the highest-selling reggae release of the year; and in 2017, they garnered a GRAMMY nomination for Best Reggae Album. Relix hailed the group as “a leading voice in their scene,” while Billboard raved that the band “weaves hypnotic threads of alt-rock and pop, retro-funk, blues, dub, [and] even traditional Middle Eastern strains into their bubbling, one-drop reggae groove.” Rebelution’s transcendent live performances, meanwhile, have taken on legendary status, earning the group sell-out headline shows everywhere from Red Rocks to The Greek Theatre along with festival slots at Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, ACL, Glastonbury and even their own festival in Jamaica.
