Chicago rockers ready for a big 2016
Chicago’s Romantic Rebel delivers a brand of female fronted hard rock with unparalleled, explosive energy that has been taking the scene by storm. Formed in 2012 by siblings KT Paige (vocals) and Alex Vincent (guitar), the band quickly recruited Zach Smith (bass) and Ty Del Rose (drums) to form what would become Romantic Rebel. Becoming a promotion machine, the group immediately started booking shows and distributing free music to start gaining fans. Their rapidly growing fan base demanded more music from the group.
The band entered the studio in late 2013 with renowned producer Ulrich Wild to record their debut album in Los Angeles, CA. The album was completed and named Revolver magazine’s ‘Album of the Week’, only days after its release. After playing numerous regional shows, the band started touring on a national level, supporting acts such as: All That Remains, Sevendust, Asking Alexandria, Avatar, Crobot, Nonpoint, Otherwise and Like A Storm. As well as landing a spot on Wisconsin Metalfest and Rock Fest in Cadott, Wisconsin. In the Summer of 2014, the band embarked on a 4 week tour with Bobaflex, as well as a national headlining tour.
Since then, Romantic Rebel has signed with FM Music Management and TKO Booking and has completed runs with bands such as: Buckcherry, RED, Texas Hippie Coalition, Tantric, Seasons After and Kobra and the Lotus.
2015 had more festivals in store for the band. Including, WIIL Rock Fest where they performed with Hollywood Undead, Pop Evil, Saint Asonia and more. They also graced the stage at Louder Than Life in Louisville, KY with the likes of: Rob Zombie, Shinedown, ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd, etc.
To ring in 2015, KT was chosen by Revolver Magazine to be featured in their January 2015 issue as the Hottest Chick in Hard Rock and Metal and on February 11th, 2016 Romantic Rebel performed at the RadioContraband Rock Radio Awards in Las Vegas, alongside: Killswitch Engage, Stitched Up Heart and From Ashes To New.
