Perhaps one of the Most Anticipated Albums of 2018 is none other than the forthcoming sixth full-length studio album from Rebelution. The Isla Vista quartet announced that their new record, entitled Free Rein, will hit the physical and virtual shelves on June 15 via Easy Star Records / 87 Music – the album is expected to feature 12 new tracks.
Rebelution is at the pinnacle of reggae-rock, and they’ve been sitting there quite comfortably for several years. With a history of presenting ground-breaking and instrumentally sound music in conjunction with trademark vocals from lead singer and collaboration extraordinaire Eric Rachmany, the GRAMMY nominated four-piece has moved into a territory where they comfortably sell out their shows as well as headline top-tier music festivals.
The hype has been mounting for their next release, as 2016’s Falling Into Place received plenty of well-deserved support, featuring 11 tracks. While they are in the midst of wrapping up their 2018 Winter Greens Tour with support from Raging Fyah, they’ve also announced the inaugural edition of their “Bright Side Festival” – a destination music festival in Jamaica at an all-inclusive resort that will also feature The Green, Raging Fyah and DJ Mackle.
As for the album itself, Rebelution has stated that they couldn’t be more excited for fans to hear their new music. In an exclusive interview with Billboard, Eric Rachmany shared some details behind the overall theme and excitement the band is sharing for their forthcoming release:
“It’s definitely my favorite album we’ve ever done, by far. “We had the pleasure of working with a couple producers (Don Corleon, Winta James) and the rest of the album was produced by ourselves. This album really came from the heart, we’re very proud of it.”
Fans will start to get acclimated to various tastes and teasers of Free Rein — the band recently announced that the release of their first single “Celebrate” will be the first of several to drop prior to June 15, as they will be releasing a new single on the last Friday of every month leading up to the drop of Free Rein in its entirety.
