As a three-piece group, this band rocked. Hard. Since adding guitarist Bob Olson to the lineup last year, American Rebels rocks so hard you don’t even know, man. Olson’s sonic effect serves as the perfect complement to Kyle Maclean’s distinct rhythm and passionate vocals. The combination of Heather Dean and Scott Millis’ gigantic bass and drums plays its own game of back-and-forth to complete the wall of sound. After releasing a monster five-song EP in August, the Rebels went to work on the live circuit, playing a ton of shows between Duluth and Minneapolis.
