Rebel Territory

Rebel Territory release their debut double A single on Oct 3.

A band whose swagger and blistering live set has already seen the band get established with various festivals and support opportunities includingThe Mystery Jets, Tinchy Stryder, Los Campesinos and Professor Green, as well as Britpop faves The Bluetones on their final round of live performances.

With a new wave of guitar bands comingthrough Rebel Territory have found themselves linked to the likes of NME cover stars Brother and Tribes, both of whom they’ve recently supported. Indeed in Lee Zacjiw they easily boast the most spectacular guitarist of the lot, lauded by Tribes as ‘sick’ - and who had one of the Brother camp texting his mates in wonder on first seeing them!

They impress wherever they go, whether it was the late Amy Winehouse coming to see them or football manager Nigel Clough, who asked to meet them after they played Derby’s Pride Park Stadium. Their flamboyance onstage led to live footage being featured in a Harley Davidson documentary illustrating music’s power to enthral and entertain. Their debut ‘double A’ single has been mixed by Carl Rosamond (The Pierces, The Wedding Present, Cud) and mastered by the legendaryJon Astley (The Who, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin). First track ‘Falling For You’ describes the lure of passion, while ‘On The Rock’n’Roll is a defiant ‘dole’ anthem

Lee (monumental and acrobatic guitar heroics, epic lead vocals) and James Oldrini (swashbuckling bass, colossal keyboards, effortless Ali shuffle, stylish backing vocals), have been playing together since they were 10 year old schoolmates. They completed their line-up with the mighty and magnificent Sean Skinner, who had been representing Nottingham U-16’s in basketball but decided to devote himself to drumming for the band.

They first came to wider attention when asked to support The Kooks, despite hailing from a small, unfashionable, industrial Midlands town called Belper that few have heard of - unless you’re a fan of Swarfega, which was invented there! This hasn’t stopped them working hard to build a growing profile around the world, including being made ‘artist of the week’ by Heart FM in Spain, and ‘track of the week’ by CISM FM in Canada, with Black Velvet Magazine lauding them as ‘Supersonic Future Superstars’
