Rebelution recently announced The Good Vibes Summer Tour 2017 which will make a stop at Santa Barbara Bowl on June 18. Collie Buddz, Hirie and DJ Mackle will support the show.

A dozen years into Rebelution’s stirring career, the release of the California reggae band’s fifth album Falling Into Place finds them more energized than ever. Touring relentlessly since 2014’s Count Me In debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Reggae chart, the band’s members have expanded their songwriting horizons and recorded 11 tight new tracks that fuse an ever-youthful attitude of celebration with the mature perspective of men of the world.

The lyrics of “Lay My Claim” get right to the point: “Let it all unfold straight from the soul.” It’s about working hard and then reaping the benefits, says singer/guitarist/lyricist Eric Rachmany – about “being present with the music instead of just thinking about the outcome and the limelight. We’re not making music to hit a certain demographic.We’re just making music that we enjoy!”

Rebelution came together in Isla Vista in 2004. The college friends evolved into one of the brightest lights of modern reggae. Their Debut album Courage to Grow, was named iTunes’ Editors’ Choice for Best Reggae Album of 2007. Bright Side of Life, released on their own 87 Music label in 2009, hit #1 on the iTunes Reggae chart. It was also the third most downloaded album in the U.S. in all genres, and reached #1 on the Billboard Top Reggae Albums chart and #34 on Billboard's top 200.
