Gainesville, FL (PRWEB) September 8, 2008
RockHop Records signs underground Rock band, The Rebellion, a seven piece multi-cultural band with members from Southern California, Atlanta and Florida. The debut album, "The Gate 11:11", will be released on November 11, 2008--with their highly anticipated singles being simultaneously released, "Grown and Sexy" (a more urban vibe) and "Kingdom of the Light" (more Rock influenced). The simultaneous release is another twist that will take the music scene by storm.
The title of their debut album, "The Gate 11:11," holds significant meaning. Not only because it is being release on November 11 (11/11), but because "11:11 is when we are all one. The numbers in it are symbolic. Everyday at that time everyone is suppose to or remind themselves we are all one--to express to those around them love at that moment in time," band member Angelikenesis said.
The release of two debut singles simultaneously, "Grown and Sexy" and "Kingdom of the Light", represents what they are all about in terms of their music being a fusion of both Rock and Hip-Hop. Their debut album consists of songs that are highly influenced by both genres, but the concept of the simultaneous single release will help them capture both audiences, and slowly create the genre of "Rockhop" music. Their music personifies the magical experience, what the band likes to refer to as "Magik Musik," which is a feeling one gets from the music and lyrics they are listening to. It carries this magical essence that captures their intrigue and slowly creates this strong hypnotic effect.
The band possess skills and talents in a majority of musical arenas which sets them a part from many bands out there today. The inspiration for their music comes from life in general, and whatever is happening in the world which can come from love or pain. The "Creator" to them has influenced their music. Like many in the industry they still look up to those who have changed music in all aspects of the word. From RUN-DMC, The Beatles, to Prince they hope to model their success to those who have shaped the industry as it is today.
The Rebellion has been the underground buzz in both Orlando and Los Angeles music scene, taking center stage in many of the underground venues all over town. "B.G." (vocalist), Eugenuis (vocalist), Angelikenisis (vocalist), J-Sin (drummer), Master Nate (guitarist), B-Dogg (bass), and DJ Ceez are the hot new artists that make up The Rebellion. Jason has been a part of Rock bands She's Got Cooties and Six and Back.
About The Rebellion: They knew from the beginning that they belonged in music-- all coming from highly influenced, musically trained backgrounds. While the others were self-taught, J-Sin was educated and received his bachelor degree from the University of Florida, "B.G." and DJ Ceez received bachelor degrees in the recording arts from Full Sail University in Florida. Angelikenisis worked for Def Jam South, the highly acclaimed record label, for three years and has collaborated with such artists as Scarface. He moved on to work for Evander Holyfield's record label, Real Deal Records, where he reunited with fellow band member Eugenuis.
About RockHop Records: RockHop Records was started in 2006 by "B.G." and Bryan Weston in Orlando, Florida. He teamed up with fellow band member DJ Ceez to add to their staff. While searching for talent to record, Jason was added to the team as a studio musician. Soon after, Alex "AJ" Verrastro joined the team to help in the financial department. Two years later RockHop Records relocated to California from Orlando, Florida and created some of the coolest Hip-Hop Rock music to date.
