On Jan 10th, 2012 the Santa Barbara, CA based band Rebelution released "Peace of Mind" through their own label 87 Music in partnership with Controlled Substance Sound Labs. Peace of Mind was released as a multi-length triple album which includes Peace of Mind: Acoustic as well as Peace of Mind: Dub. Marking the highest chart debut of Rebelution's career, Peace of Mind debuted at #13 on the Billboard Top 200, #1 Reggae and #1 Independent albums as well as #4 on the iTunes overall album chart. The band previously had four top 10 albums on the Reggae chart and their 2009 release Bright Side of Life debuted at No. 54 on the Top 200 and #1 Reggae.
Rebelution kicked off their "Peace of Mind Tour" the day after the release, selling out shows at Philly's The Electric Factory, The Hollywood Palladium, Denver's The Fillmore, The Fox Theater in Oakland and Hard Rock in Orlando, FL. The tour made stops in a total of 42 cities across the country.
During Summer 2012 they supported O.A.R on their Amphitheatre tour, headlined four amphitheaters in Florida as well as festival performances at Outside Lands, Hangout, Forecastle, Summer Camp, Summer Set, The Allman Bro's Peach Festival and two performances at Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Currently the group is crossing the East and South East on the "Give Thanks Tour" and will be headlining The Hollywood Palladium on New Years Eve.
Peace of Mind marks the first time Rebelution has expanded beyond their usual self-production enlisting producers Michael Goldwasser (Easy Star All-Stars), Amp Live (Zion-I), Yeti Beats (Kool Keith, George Clinton), Keith Armstrong and Errol Brown (Stephen, Ziggy, Damian, and Bob Marley). The album builds upon the band's signature style while venturing into new musical genres from the lush strings incorporated into the gentle "Route Around" to the driving guitar and synths throughout "Lady In White".
Rebelution has developed into a front-runner for grassroots, independent and tour driven music groups. Originally formed in 2004, members Eric Rachmany (vocals / guitar), Rory Carey (keyboards), Wesley Finley (drums), and Marley D. Williams (bass) met in college, while residing in Isla Vista, a popular beachside community in Santa Barbara. It was there that the seeds to Rebelution's future were planted creating inspiring and engaging music that would leave their listeners with the sense that they have the power to make this world a better place. 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.
Coming from Surf City USA, Pacific Dub resides in Huntington Beach which is nestled nicely in southern California's Orange County. Other bands such as Korn, The Offspring, Avenged Sevenfold, and The Dirty Heads all have members that call this surfer's paradise home.
Combining catchy chorus's, heavy rock n' roll guitar melodies, and smooth hip-hop and reggae rhythms are all significant characteristics that add to Pacific Dub's coastal vibe, and genuine objective of creating innovative alternative-rock-reggae while sharing a message of love and peace.
Now with 4 Western US Tours, 3 Albums, 1 single, and an ever growing and enthusiastic fan base under their belt, Pacific Dub shows no signs of slowing down now. Following multiple sold out shows supporting bands such as- The Dirty Heads, Iration, & Rebelution on their 2011 Spring Tours, PDub has been hard at work writing new songs, which eventually will turn into the bands next 12-15 song full-length album.
In between writing and recording, the band intends to tour extensively throughout the remainder of 2011- including a Co-Headlining National Summer Tour w/ The Movement.
From the entire Pacific Dub family, we thank you for your continued support, and look forward to releasing new music, and seeing you at a show soon.
