They are touring throughout April and May to promote their brand new five-track EP Georgia Pine, which features the rock radio hit Low and the forthcoming single, Guns.
Last year they played at the Camden Rocks Festival in London, as well as two Time Out London concerts including The Time Out Best of Rising Stars 2015 at London’s sold out Jazz Café.
A tour as support act for American musician Brantley Gilbert has already been confirmed May 2016.
New EP Georgia Pine is authentic, rootsy, and real, and has serious hit potential. Similarly to the new generation of contemporary and distinctive soulful roots rock bands like Alabama Shakes and Black Keys, Broken Witt Rebels strike a chord.
The band pay homage to the sounds of old blues and Stax guitarists, but, at the same time, their unique approach to song-writing and recording gives the EP a fresh and modern authenticity that is entirely unique.
With crunching riffs jabbed by soulful vocals these new songs have energy and force behind them that are hallmarks of something big.
The EP was engineered and produced by Tom Gittins, who has worked on recent recordings by Robert Plant (Led Zeppelin).
Gittins says the Rebels’ lead singer, Danny Core, is an amazing vocal talent in the tradition of Steve Marriot and Joe Cocker – a distinctive heart-wrenching vocal style that’s steeped deep within the inner core of blues and soul.
Georgia Pine can be bought via the band’s official website www.brokenwittrebels.com.
