Rebel Priest
Lesson In Love – Out June 24th
Batcave Records / Thundermoose Entertainment
24 June 2022

Vancouver rockers REBEL PRIEST release their new EP “Lesson In Love” due out June 24th via Batcave Records/ Thundermoose Ent. to follow their 2021 EP “Lost In Tokyo”.

The EP as a whole (LYRICALLY & MUSICALLY):

On this EP we really tried to lighten it up and go back to the energy and feel that got us playing in the first place, music for adventure or memory-making music! The soundtrack for that summer you’ll never forget or that time you did that thing and you’ll always think of it when you hear this song. It’s a feel-good and takes no prisoners combo at the same time!

Track by track (LYRICALLY & MUSICALLY):

  1. Lesson In Love is a non-traditional ballad like a love song sung by a Tommy gun hahaha! It’s about the trials and tribulations of loving something and just going thru it, the ups and downs and spirals but without the direct subject being a person. It’s open-ended in that it is what you love or love doing and how it’s a journey that can always find a way home.
  2. Dïvebomber is a speed rock song that came together as we were chatting about WW2 dogfights and how crazy it must have been, then we thought that nothing could be crazier than a dïvebomber so we picked up our instruments and it just bled out!
  3. Coatcheck Girl is a song Nate wrote a while ago about working at nightclubs and how (most often) the woman working the door was the best looking lady in the place! It’s been in our set for a while now and is a staple for our live shows, I mean who isn’t ready to party when a song starts out with LET’S GO GET SOME BEER!
  4. Bonfire is a song about the great Bon Scott and nods to his wicked wordplay and snarky attitude. He was a true original and nobody came close! With thundering drums and lightning strike guitars, this song is a punch to the gut just like how he lived his life!

Rebel Priest is a no-nonsense, real-deal rock n’ roll band composed of three seasoned musicians who have been making their way through the Western Canadian rock n roll scene for years. Vocalist/bassist Jayme Black (Lust Boys, The Toxiks); guitarist/vocalist Benny Kemp (Lust Boys, Road Rash); and drummer/vocalist Nate Pole (Kill Matilda, The Toxiks) bring nothing but unadulterated, high energy grease infused Trash N’ Roll!

The band has had the pleasure of touring Japan, and performing alongside bands such as Udo (Accept), Lordi, Diamond Head, Crystal Pistol, Flotsam, and Jetsam along with playing many headlining gigs with the energy of Motorhead meets Motley Crue. Since forming in 2014, the band has released three studio albums “R’ley Heavy” (2019), Enabler (2017 ), Self-Titled (2015) along with one live record “Dead Alive @ SBC (2017).

Now in 2022, they offering up a slab of new music in the shape of a new EP “Lesson In Love” via Batcave Records/Thundermoose Entertainment on June 24th to follow their 2021 EP “Lost In Tokyo”. The forthcoming EP “Lesson In Love” is four tracks that ready’s fans to hear the band’s NWOTHM influences along with their brand of slurry heavy Rock n Roll.

Compared to last year’s EP “Lost In Tokyo”, which was written in Japan at the very end of 2019 about their adventures in the country, “Lesson In Love” takes a new avenue as they explain:

“On this EP, we really tried to lighten it up and go back to the energy and feel that got us playing in the first place, music for and adventure or memory-making music! The soundtrack for that summer you’ll never forget or that time you did that thing and you’ll always think of it when you hear this song. It’s a feel-good and takes no prisoners combo at the same time!”

Rebel Priest is recommended for fans of Guns n’ Roses, AC/DC and Motley Crue.
