Boston, MA’s hungriest melodic punk rockers, REBUILDER, have teamed with New Noise Magazine to premiere their brand new music video for the track “Look What You’ve Done.” The song comes from the band’s debut full length, Rock & Roll In America, out now via Panic State Records.
There will be plenty of opportunities to catch Rebuilder‘s raucous brand of Americana-tinged melodic punk live this summer. The band have announced a run of United States tour dates, as well as an appearance in Boston with Good Riddance and Iron Chic, and in Gainesville, FL for The Fest 14.
Boston, Massachusetts has always been a melting pot for the special intersection between American rock & roll and punk music. There’s something distinctly American about the city’s legacy of down-to-earth, working class bands, melding the universal appeal and swagger of rock & roll with punk rock’s grit and values. Rebuilder have tapped into that legacy and seek to continue it with their debut full length, Rock & Roll In America.
Recorded by Jay Maas (Defeater, Transit, Make Do And Mend, Polar Bear Club) at Getaway Recording, Rock & Roll In America builds upon the promise shown onRebuilder‘s 2013 self-titled EP, and represents a sonic shift towards something more dynamic. The band don’t shy away from taking risks, their melodic punk sound prominently features an organ, an instrument not often represented in the genre. Despite the influence of Americana and rock & roll on Rebuilder‘s music, the band is invitingly familiar. They’re the kind of scrappy punk band whose every note exudes such passionate enthusiasm, that you can’t help but root for them. With Rock & Roll In America, Rebuilder will have many new listeners doing just that.
