Rebel Transmission is the latest offering from Canadian pop band, Newworldson. A seven-time GMA Canada Covenant Award winner with three career JUNO Award nominations to its credit, Newworldson burst onto the national music scene in 2007. Its label debut, Salvation Station, was voted No. 3 on Christianity Today's Best Christian Albums of 2008, produced a hit music video "Working Man," and earned Newworldson a guest spot on newsboys' 2007-2008 "GO" tour as well as festival invitations to Australia, Germany, Holland and Sweden. But it was 2010's self-titled sophomore album that catapulted the group to new heights, thanks to the success of smash hit "There Is A Way," Newworldson's first No. 1 single.
Rebel Transmission continues Newworldson's unique tradition of gospel, R&B, reggae and jazz fused together with an innate pop sensibility. In addition to the exceptional musicianship of band members Joel Parisien (lead vocals, keyboard), Mark Rogers (drums), Rich Moore (bass) and Josh Toal (vocals, guitar), the project also features critically acclaimed Chops Horns (Alicia Keys, The Police, The Rolling Stones). The self-produced record showcases songs including "Old Time Religion" and "Son of Man," which follow in the footsteps of old favorites like "Working Man" with foot-stomping soul and glitzy brass. First single "Learning to Be the Light," already Top 5 on the radio charts, and "Today" have a decidedly pop leaning while still maintaining Newworldson's colorful retro flair.
