Despite the name, Detroit Rebellion is actually a Providence, RI based duo. Bringing the less is more approach to the combination of blues, folk, and “other” styles (with an emphasis on the “other”), Detroit Rebellion has been quickly capturing attention as a band to be reckoned with.
During recording sessions for sophomore EP Fork In The Road, Toste experimented with “adding some texture to the songs” by running a distortion pedal through his guitar–a pedal he scored from Kurt Cobain at a Nirvana show in 1991. The result is layers of gritty riffs that make the release a must for fans of uncompromising, straight-faced blues, rock and (perhaps most of all) “other.”
