On January 10, 2012, Santa Barbara, CA based Rebelution will release their 3rd studio album, Peace Of Mind, through their own label 87 Music. The label, in partnership with Controlled Substance Sound Labs, will simultaneously release two additional versions of the entire record as a multi-length triple album.
Peace of Mind: Acoustic will feature all twelve original album tracks stripped down acoustic as well as Peace of Mind: Dub remixed by Easy Star’s Michael Goldwasser (Dub Side of The Moon, Radiodread, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Dub Band). The albums will be available via digital download, CD and will be available for preorder. Beginning today, fans can get a free download of all three versions of Peace of Mind’s first single, the upbeat “Sky is the Limit” by heading to www.Rebelutionmusic.com
“It’s been two and a half years since our last album and we are very excited to release new material. The triple-album is definitely a progression musically and genre wise from our past albums, while still grounded in reggae,” says the band.
Expanding beyond their usual self-production, Rebelution collaborated with five different producers including Goldwasser (Easy Star All-Stars), Amplive (Zion-I), Yeti Beats (Kool Keith, George Clinton), Keith Armstrong and Errol Brown (Stephen, Ziggy, Damian, and Bob Marley), building upon their signature style and venturing into different musical landscapes.
From the opening horns on “Sky is the Limit” to the lush strings incorporated into the gentle “Route Around” to the driving guitar and synths throughout “Lady In White”, the band has built upon their sound spanning a number of genres while remaining true to their reggae roots.
Peace of Mind follows Rebelution’s wildly successful previous album, Bright Side of Life, which debuted at the #1 position on the iTunes Reggae Charts, #3 for the top iTunes albums downloaded in the United States in all genres of music and reached No. 1 on the Billboard Top Reggae Albums chart. The band continuously tours across the country, ventured to South America and Europe, and has previously performed at Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits among others.
