Editor’s Note: 2018 was been an exciting year for Los Angeles power rock trio, Rebel Rampage. They released their ferocious debut album Divided We Fall (10/5/18), performed alongside Angelo Moore (Fishbone), who also appears on the album, in partnership with the ACLU, and were featured by reputable media outlets, including Loudwire, Buzzbands LA, idobi radio, Pure Grain Audio, among others. They also won The Deli Magazine Los Angeles “Artist of the Month” (November/December 2018) and are currently planning new content for 2019. Rebel Rampage is endorsed by internationally recognized music companies D’Addario, Guild, VOX/Blackstar Amps, Eden Bass Amps, and Paiste cymbals.
Rebel Rampage are on a mission to galvanize and inspire the public to engage in the democratic process by upholding civil and constitutional rights, and enforce accountability for the actions of those in power. They rally behind the motto, “United We Stand, Divided We Fall! Respect my existence, or expect my resistance!” Front man Graham Czach elaborates, “This project was born out of feeling helpless and hopeless with the current abomination of an administration and government especially Trump. It’s our reaction to the outrageous corruption and darkness that has fallen over this country and is dividing it, hence the name of the album.”
The group’s political activism through music has drawn the respect of the ACLU of Southern California, whose members Rebel Rampage are excited to be offering free copies of Divided We Fall. The band are continuing to support ACLU’s mission by collaborating and partnering on events.
Divided We Fall is a collaboration of industry heavy-hitters, and its collection of politically charged and controversial songs are a fiery addition to L.A.’s historic lineage of protest music. In an effort to bring the creative process to life, Rebel Rampage retreated to the famed Rancho De La Luna recording studio in Joshua Tree, CA with owner Dave Catching (Eagles of Death Metal, Queens of the Stone Age) and engineer Jon Russo (Mojave Lords). Talented L.A. natives Angelo Moore (Fishbone) and Emily Armstrong (Dead Sara) guest star on the tracks “Red Star” and “I Am The Power” respectively. Vocals were tracked at Attic Recording in Nashville, TN with engineer Greg Magers (Lupe Fiasco, Umphrey’s McGee). Four-time Grammy Award winner Adam Kasper (Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Soundgarden) mixed the album at Studio X in Seattle, WA, and all mastering was done by Grammy Award winner Reuben Cohen at Lurssen Mastering in Burbank, CA.
