The band is touring in conjunction with the release of its fourth album.  Although Count Me In arrives June 10 via 87 Music/Easy Star Records, you can grab a free download of the track “De-stressed” just by clicking here.

“There’s really nothing else we’d rather do during the summer than be on the road, performing live music,” bassist Marley D. Williams said.  “We’ve got a great show planned and are looking forward to playing some brand new songs as well as the favorites, so we hope everyone will come and celebrate the summer life with us.”

Even though the first leg of the Count Me In Summer Tour is routed through the East Coast the itinerary does include one lone California destination – the Sierra Nevada World Music Festival June 22.  While the world waits for Rebelution to release the second leg of the tour next week, already announced are the band’s two shows at Southern California’s OC Fair August 9-10.  Rebelution is also booked for Lollapalooza in Chicago Aug. 3.
