Garage/blues from Providence, Rhode Island

Detroit Rebellion

Nylon Otters

Doc Ellis

Led by songwriter/guitarist/vocalist Jeff Toste and currently with drummer Micaiah Castro, the blues/garage Rhode Island rock project has existed in various forms, both solo and currently duo, based on Toste’s evolving band lineup. Detroit Rebellion have been busy the first half of 2017 working on material for a sophomore album due to arrive in the fall of this year, also on Bodan Kuma.

Detroit Rebellion creates music that heals the soul. The Man delves deep into the forces of repression and control, while “Fork In The Road” is a song about indecision – featuring a distorted acoustic guitar, filtered through a pedal Toste obtained after discarded by Kurt Cobain at a Providence performance in the ‘90s. The album was recorded live in a basement in Providence, including the vocals, with some guitar and percussion overdubs. It’s no frills modern day blues music.

This July is 50th anniversary of the 1967 Detroit Riots… the band’s namesake.

The debut album from Detroit Rebellion, The Man, will be available on July 21st.

“It’s modern day blues that might find something akin with another Detroit duo, those folks at Third Man Records, and the ghosts that haunt Timber Timbre to the north.” – Guitar World

“Oozing with tinges of tribal rock and Americana.” – Rex Manning Day

“Detroit Rebellion kick out some seriously grimy and groovy garage blues laced with chugging jazz rhythms, and I’m hopping on the bandwagon right now….And the next time Walter White and Jesse decide to rob a train of methylamine, they could draw inspiration from the grimy gallop of ‘Dirty Boots’ and first single, ‘Fork In the Road.’” – Providence Phoenix

Here’s a video for “Fork in the Road”-
