Detroit Rebellion Announce Vinyl Edition of 'The Man'

Detroit Rebellion has announced their debut album, The Man, will receive a physical vinyl release, along with a double A-Side 7” single featuring “Fork In The Road” b/w “The Man”, July 21 on Los Angeles-based Bodan Kuma Recordings.

Led by songwriter/guitarist/vocalist Jeff Toste and currently with drummer Micaiah Castro, the blues/garage rock project has existed in various forms, both solo and currently duo, based on Toste’s evolving band lineup. Detroit Rebellion have been busy the first half of 2017 working on material for a sophomore album due to arrive in the fall of this year, also on Bodankuma. Details to be announced this summer.

Detroit Rebellion create music heal the soul. “The Man” delves deep into the forces of repression and control, while “Fork In The Road” is a song about indecision - featuring a distorted acoustic guitar, filtered through a pedal Troste obtained after discarded by Kurt Cobain at a Providence performance in the ‘90s. The album was recorded live off the floor in a basement in Providence, including the vocal takes, with minor overdubs. It’s modern day blues that might find something akin with another Detroit duo, those folks at Third Man Records, and the ghosts that haunt Timber Timbre to the north.
