Rebelution dropped their fourth studio album, Count Me In on June 10th via their own 87 Music in partnership with Easy Star Records. Riding the wave from their Peace of Mind release, Rebelution celebrates their biggest debut week ever!
Count Me In is the band’s second consecutive album to debut in the Top 15 (#14) of the Billboard 200, plus their third straight album to debut at #1 Reggae! In addition, the album makes a Top 5 debut on Billboard’s Independent chart (#2) & in at #4 on the Digital chart.
“To have had our last two albums debut in the Top 15 is really exciting for both our band and the new style of reggae that is building,” said Rebelution’s vocalist Eric Rachmany. “We have a great sense of community and family with our fans, so the fact that they like this new album so much is beyond gratifying.”
The album includes 11 total tracks with special guest appearances by Collie Buddz and Don Carlos. The album was recorded in Miami out of Inner Circle’s Circle House Studios as well as recording done Burbank, CA between September & December 2013.
“From writing these songs to mixing and mastering the album, we were involved in every step…We’re becoming comfortable expressing ourselves, both in the studio and on stage. This album was truly fun to make, it’s an honest expression of who we are” revealed Rachmany, and while much of the production was done by the band independently, Rebelution utilized the Reggae-Rock community whole-heartedly to create Count Me In.
