Rebelution is emerging from the 2020 pandemic with a new album set to drop on June 18th, 2021 with the release of In The Moment. The album will be releases via 87 Music / Easy Star Records and will include 15 total tracks.
In The Moment is set to feature guest appearances by Jamaican artists Keznamdi, Kabaka Pyramid, Busy Signal and American soul singer, Durand Jones. There are 14 new songs and an acoustic version of one of the songs (“To Be Younger”) with the band taking production from their own touring lead-guitarist Kyle Ahern.
“We all worked together with Kyle to bring our individual visions to life,” says lead singer Eric Rachmany. “We wanted to make this the most diverse sounding record we could.”
The album was recorded remotely from each of their respective homes during 2020’s COVID Pandemic. Kyle was at the center of the production with each member of the band teaming up directly to quarterback particular tunes throughout the process which was in stark contrast to the groups previous records where they would regularly gather together to capture the album live.

The band has released 2 singles from the album with “Satisified” and “Old School Feeling” as both songs show an organic evolution of Rebelution where they innovated a roots reggae sound over pop hooks and hip-hop grooves. The album is about keeping things in perspective with the title In The Moment.
“Whenever I started to write, this notion of time kept coming up over and over again in the lyrics,” say Rachmany. “It can feel a little scary how fast everything moves, but you have to just keep reminding yourself to be present and make the most of every moment.”
2021 will see the group promoting the album on their Good Vibes Summer Tour with Steel Pulse, The Green, Keznamdi, and DJ Mackie. The album is already available for pre-order at Rebelutionmusic.com where you can also find the latest updates on concert information.
