In early-2012, the Santa Barbara, CA-based band Rebelution released Peace of Mind through their own label 87 Music in partnership with Controlled Substance Sound Labs. Peace of Mind was released as a multi-length triple album which included the original Peace Of Mind album along with the Peace of Mind: Acoustic and Peace of Mind: Dub versions.
Marking the highest chart debut of Rebelution's career, Peace of Mind debuted at #13 on the Billboard Top 200, #1 Reggae and #1 Independent albums as well as #4 on the iTunes overall album chart. The band previously had four top 10 albums on the Reggae chart and their 2009 release Bright Side of Life debuted at #54 on the Top 200 and #1 Reggae.
Peace of Mind marks the first time Rebelution has expanded beyond their usual self-production enlisting producers Michael Goldwasser (Easy Star All-Stars), Amp Live (Zion-I), Yeti Beats (Kool Keith, George Clinton), Keith Armstrong and Errol Brown (Stephen, Ziggy, Damian, Bob Marley). The album builds upon the band's signature style while venturing into new musical genres from the lush strings incorporated into the gentle "Route Around" to the driving guitar and synths throughout "Lady In White."
Rebelution has developed into a front-runner for grassroots, independent and tour driven music groups. Originally formed in 2004, members Eric Rachmany (vocals/ guitar), Rory Carey (keyboards), Wesley Finley (drums), and Marley D. Williams (bass) met in college, while residing in Isla Vista, a popular beachside community in Santa Barbara. It was there that the seeds to Rebelution's future were planted creating inspiring and engaging music that would leave their listeners with the sense that they have the power to make this world a better place.
Each of the three versions of Peace Of Mind are now being offered individually on vinyl pressings with a digital download card.
