"detroit rebellion of '67" by Detroit Rebellion

Video comprised of archival footage (for educational purposes) from the Detroit Rebellion of 1967.


In Detroit Rebellion's new video for "The Detroit Rebellion of '67," the title track off their second EP, archival footage from the actual Detroit rebellion is utilized to visceral, shocking effect. The grainy, newsreel footage, paired with Detroit Rebellion's stomping, gritty riffs paints a vision of Detroit that while dated, feels all too real.

Despite the name, Detroit's favorite non-native sons are actually a duo from Providence, RI, composed of Jeff Toste (guitar/vocals) and Michael Lamantia Jr. (drums), aka Mikey Lams. Bringing the less is more approach to their combination of blues, folk, and "other" styles (with an emphasis on the "other"), Detroit Rebellion lit a fire in the blogosphere with their debut EP Fork In the Road, earning praise from, Louder Than War and Berkeley Place amongst others. The record garnered airplay on such notable stations as KXLU in Los Angeles and WMBR in Boston. The track "Dirty Boots" is being featured in the upcoming film Growing Up and Other Lies featuring Adam Brody and Wyatt Cenac.

On their sophomore EP, The Detroit Rebellion of '67, the band relies simply on the formula that worked for their debut. Utilizing no tricks or gimmicks, the EP is a gritty, mold on the amps, stripped bare love letter to the blues.
