Providence, Rhode Island based duo, Detroit Rebellion, has announced their debut album, ‘The Man,’ will get a physical vinyl release, along with a double A-Side 7″ single featuring Fork In The Road b/w The Man, on July 21 via Los Angeles-based Bodan Kuma Recordings. Stream Fork In The Road via Soundcloud below.
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.
