2021 Rebel Rock Festival Cancelled

The 2021 Rebel Rock festival in Orlando, FL has officially been cancelled. The event was unable to move forward due to unfit conditions related to severe weather.

Organizers issued the following statement:

“We are deeply and utterly devastated to announce the cancellation of this weekend’s Rebel Rock Festival.

After this week’s severe weather and despite our crew’s effort to improve the ground conditions around the Main Stage over the last three days, our venue partner has deemed the area unfit for artists, crews, vendors, and fans. We were able to get in the Taco Metal Party on Thursday by using the B-Main grounds while continuing to work on the conditions of the Main Stage grounds. The amount of water dropped this week simply proved to be too much to clear to provide you a safe festival environment and experience. We can’t tell you how heartbreaking it is to see two years of work be tackled by mother nature.

We’ll share more information about refunds as soon as possible.”

Butcher Babies Premiere New Song “It’s Killin’ Time, Baby!” Featuring Escape The Fate’s Craig Mabbitt

Butcher Babies have premiered a new song titled “It’s Killin’ Time, Baby!.” The track, which features Escape The Fate’s Craig Mabbitt, is inspired by DC Comics’ Lobo and it can be streamed below:

Henry Flury said the following:

“From beginning to end, ‘Killin’ Time’ is a relentless groove-infused face melter that is guaranteed to give you bang-over.”

Carla Harvey continued:

“I can’t think of a better song to release the day before we hit the road on our first tour in over two years. It’s killin time, baby…in more ways than one!! As a lifelong comic book aficionado, it was so much fun to write a song based on one of my favorite characters, the bounty huntin’ space cowboy himself, Lobo. When Heidi and I were penning the lyrics we thought, are we really writing a song about a Bastitch on a Spaz Frag? Hell yes, because just like Lobo, we like a good time. It was also a cool new experience for us to throw another singer in the mix for this one! Craig Mabbitt’s screams add another level to this banger…enjoy!”

Heidi Shepherd added:

“HOLY FRAGG, SPACE HOG! We are fraggin’ stoked to bring to you our latest banger, ‘It’s Killin’ Time, Baby!’ inspired by the main man himself, Lobo! This bounty hunter, biker has a way of stealing even the blackest of hearts. Between breaking legs and breaking hearts, Lobo embodies the heavy metal attitude we all need in 2021!

We were so lucky to have our buddy, the very talented Craig Mabbitt from Escape The Fate and Dead Rabbitts, join us in this jam! Our incredible producer, Matt Good, brought this comic-themed dream to life and we CANNOT wait for you to hear it and then rock it LIVE in the pit!!”

Mabbitt also commented:

“Thank you to the Butcher Babies for including me in this awesome track, and for introducing me to Lobo!!”

All Good Things have premiered a new song titled “The Comeback.” This track features Craig Mabbitt (Escape The Fate) and it will appear on the band’s new album “A Hope In Hell,” which is set to be released on August 20.

All Good Things commented:

“We wrote this song on the plane on the way back from New York when Better Noise offered us a record deal. There was a mix of emotions for us: we were super excited at being able to take our music to the next level with a record label and at the same time, devastating wildfires were destroying much of California and people were losing their homes and everything they owned. The song is about finding a new path when you think all your options are shot, but also it’s about coming together and rebuilding from the ashes.”

Mabbitt added:

“I love working on music. I love hearing new music. I love singing new songs. It’s always flattering to be invited into someone else’s creative vision. I’ve recently become an All Good Things fan because I think they’re doing something really cool, and it’s just an added bonus that we are label family.”
