Firmly rooted in New York's Punk and and Hardcore ancestry, Rebelmatic has self-sworn hip-hop purists, moshing alongside skate punks. This is raw music for real people. . Its unrelenting, brutal and touching all at once. In 2013, the boys are poised to have the coveted break-out moment every band dreams of, with the release of their upcoming album "Elephant Amnesia"
Group frontman, Creature, is a virtual General on New York's alt-scene. His packed and sweaty Fire Your Boss and Coffee Grind showcases have acted as the true vanguard of alternative urban arts in recent years. A haven for those who are about the band...not the bandwagon.
The Creature admiration society runs deep. Creature has collaborated/ performed/toured with musicians including Mf Doom, Slug(Atmosphere), Immortal Technique, Prefuse 73, Ari up of the Slits, Mike Patton, Murphy's Law, Skarhead, The Beatnuts, Mike Ladd(Infesticons) Ricky Powell,and published a book called the Underdog’s Manifesto.
The lead single "Survival Gathering" is a paranoid-schizophrenic's romance tale about a city that both loathes and loves the inhabitants who waste themselves away just to say they might be alive. Its like a crew of derelict A train psychotics growling to the nervous delight and passive fear of those trapped inside the car...but curiously everyone stays on after trapped inside the car...but curiously everyone stays on after the train screeches into the next station, and the doors open offering an easy out.
