"Every few decades there comes a group or sound that redefines genres or shifts the musical paradigm. I humbly offer Game Rebellion as the next artist that will re-invigorate what seems to be a stasis in musical innovation in the industry."
Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) December 1, 2009
Once in a long while, a band comes along that is so brilliantly rebellious that it defies description. Brooklyn rockers Game Rebellion know that the mainstream may frown upon their decision to create outside the box, but in the end, the fans motivate the band to fight the power.
With their new single "Blind" hitting iTunes on December 1, 2009, and their original EP Sounds Like a Riot debuting on January 18, 2010, Game Rebellion is ready to blow minds and expand universes.
Band members Yohimbe (guitar, vocals), Ahmed (bass), Emi (keys, vocals), Aaron (percussion) and Netic (lead vocals) are masters of mashing up influences of rock, punk, hip hop, metal and other genres. Their ability to flow between powerful poetry, fiery rap, crazy instrumental solos and frenetic singing over the music engages the crowd, guaranteeing synergy with the audience at every live show.
"Every few decades there comes a group or sound that redefines genres or shifts the musical paradigm," Ahmed explains. "I humbly offer Game Rebellion as the next artist that will re-invigorate what seems to be a stasis in musical innovation in the industry. Honestly, if it wasn't for all of our supporters being so consistent, I couldn't make such a statement. Personally, it is the fans and their overwhelming response that have kept me motivated throughout the years."
The band's growing number of fans, known affectionately as "rebels," have become notorious for their dedication to Game Rebellion.
"It's almost as if their energy is the play/stop button," Yohimbe says. "When the crowd is going nuts, we play even harder. The audience has their own relationship with our songs. Their moshing, stage diving and surfing is as much part of the show as my guitar solo. The wildest thing is that after the show, the rebels congratulate each other as if they performed! Honestly, they are just as sweaty and worn out as us... but let us start the next song and we all wake the f*ck up!"
In 2007, Game Rebellion released their first official mixtape, Searching for Rick Rubin with Brooklyn's DJ J.Period. The project was received with open arms by otherwise cynical music critics, who lavished praise on the Game Rebellion movement. The December 1, 2009 release of their politically-driven single "Blind" shows the band's further growth in connecting with fans.
Game Rebellion drives home their fervently powerful messages with educated passion and cohesive artistry. Sounds Like a Riot is their first original project together, and will offer the world some new perspective when the EP hits shelves on January 18, 2010.
“Game Rebellion came together out of a need to create an environment where we can all be the best at our selected positions,” says Emi. “We all have similar values and musical tastes. The reason why this band works is because we all believe in each other. We hold each other down, and we are all accountable for making this movement work. In Game Rebellion, it is a band of brothers against all odds. We will do it together, or not at all.”
