LOS ANGELES, CA (November 30, 2009)— iTunes and Billboard chart topping group Rebelution announces their headlining Winter 2010 tour alongside acclaimed reggae artist SOJA and critically acclaimed hip-hop legends ZION-I. Continuing with their constant touring schedule, which saw them play over 70 shows and a dozen festivals this year, with their most recent trek across the country selling out many venues including markets in which the band had never previously performed.

Based in Santa Barbara, Rebelution will be headlining 39 performances nationwide throughout January, February, and March 2010. Venues will be in the one thousand to two thousand capacity range, 19 of them House of Blues main rooms. The band has rapidly grown into one of the most notable reggae artists in the music industry today, after the release of their sophomore album “Bright Side of Life” dominated the iTunes charts in August 2009, capturing the #3 spot for top albums downloaded in the United States in all genres, and the #1 spot in the reggae music genre. Rebelution went on to garner the #54 spot on the Billboard Top 200, #7 on the Billboard Top Independent Albums charts and #1 on the Billboard Top Reggae Albums charts.

Rebelution recently finished a 52 city tour across the United States, playing sold out shows at venues such as The Fillmore in San Francisco, The House of Blues in West Hollywood, HOB Anaheim, HOB San Diego, Paradise Rock in Boston, The Note in Westchester, Neumos in Seattle, The Social in Orlando, Fox Theatre in Boulder, Norva in Norfolk and Music Farm in Charleston to name a few. They have shared the stage with artists such as The Offspring, 311, Slightly Stoopid, Willie Nelson, Damian Marley, Bob Dylan, and Ludacris.

Touring with Rebelution is Washington D.C.’s SOJA who released their third full-length album “Born in Babylon” in August 2009. The album debuted at #1 on the iTunes reggae charts, and #3 on Billboard’s Top Reggae Album charts. The band is known as a road warrior, averaging 150 shows a year visiting every major city in the United States, and playing internationally for crowds of up to 16,000 people. They have shared the stage with notable artists such as Citizen Cope, Matisyahu, Ben Harper, Slightly Stoopid, Damian Marley, Govt Mule, Umphrees McGee, and Steel Pulse.

Also touring with Rebelution is Oakland based, hip-hop legends ZION-I. The duo consists of producer and DJ AmpLive and emcee Zumbi. They are best known for their futuristic production techniques, using a mix of live instrumentation and samples, and their poetic, positive, and socially conscious lyrics.
