Just hours before they stepped on staged to kick off their Spring Greens Tour, on the heels of the announcement for their highly anticipated new album, Count Me In, Rebelution has announced the initial details surrounding their Count Me In Summer Tour!
2013 was another big year for Rebelution. On the road basically non-stop from February through September, the band not only toured throughout North America but they performed on multiple continents, and at several major music festivals, including a headlining appearance at the California Roots Festival, two sets at Wakarusa, and a spot at Glastonbury. With all this time out on tour its a wonder, the band was able to find time to put together another record to release in 2014.
With the release of their forthcoming record Count Me In, set for June 10th via Rebelution’s own label, 87 Music, in partnership with Easy Star Records, it seems as if this year may be Rebelutios’s biggest year yet.
Only two days after Count Me In drops, Rebelution will once again hit the road, traveling through the US on their Count Me In Summer Tour. Just as the band has always done, Rebelution will be bringing along excellent supporting acts. It’s the Rebelution reputation, something they are known to do, and this summer’s tour will not disappoint. Joining Rebelution all across the nation on the Count Me In Summer Tour will be none other than Iration, The Green, Stick Figure and DJ Mackle.
Thus far, only the first leg of the tour has been revealed, featuring 13 dates on the east coast. Starting June, 12th in Boston at the House of Blues, the tour will work its way south to a 4 night run around Florida, before ending in Atlanta at the The Tabernacle on June 29th. Please be sure to check back, as the second half of Rebelution’s summer tour dates will be announced soon. Playing around their scheduled appearances at music festival, the band will likely add dates throughout the rest of the US, set for July and August.
As it was previously revealed that Rebelution will be playing a handful of Festivals this season. During the beginning of May, Rebelution plays down in Florida at SunFest, then at the end the month they headline in Monterey at California Roots. During the beginning of June the band will play in Houston at the Free Press Summer Festival, at the end the month they play in Boonville, CA at the Sierra Nevada World Music Festival.
