Vancouver, Canada’s Rebel Priest has been sharing their greasy version of rock n’ roll with the world for several years now and has accumulated an impressive discography and touring history. They are adding to their catalogue with “Lesson In Love”, which is streaming now for ears all over the world down below, ahead of its release date on June 24, 2022 (tomorrow) via Batcave Records.
This EP is 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 take no prisoners combo at the same time! The band explains further:
“This new EP is our strongest yet! It’s all killer, no filler. No complicated stuff, just good, fast, and heavy! I think if fans liked our last stuff they are gonna think this is the best and if they didn’t like us then they will now! Lots of heavy blues metal rolling and catchy lyrics that make ya wanna shout out loud! 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 an adventure or memory-making music!”
The band has been playing this batch of songs for a while now, so they are crowd-tested and roadworthy. While the big pause affected the recording process, they slowly got them down on tape and made them sound as wicked as possible. They are working on writing new stuff, so keep your ears open. Rebel Priest‘s greasy version of rock n’ roll is recommended for fans of Rose Tattoo, Deep Purple, and LA Guns.
“Lesson In Love” was produced, mixed, and mastered by Rene De La Muerte (The Brains) and the EP artwork was done by Angela Grimuzza.

“Good time high energy rock that demands a beer in hand, sweat running down the back and smiles all around…. combination of AC/DC, Guns n Roses and Motley Crüe would be how I’d describe them, with added Motörhead to bring more flame to the fire on occasion.” – The Razor’s Edge
“Pay attention for REBEL PRIEST’s Rock ‘n’ Roll homily, because as they preach Rock ‘n’ Roll with “Lost in Tokyo”, you’ll be converted to their hard Rock cult. 9/10″ – Metal-Temple
“It’s such a blast of high-powered hard rocking energy, this a fun track (Lost In Tokyo) that will make you want to visit the city and get lost.” – Games, Brrraaains & A Head-Banging Life
“For fans of bands like Mötley Crüe and the likes, Rebel Priest may be the right thing and if you are looking for dirty rock with beer-loving lyrics for a night of drinking, you will find it at Rebel Priest.” – Hellfire Magazine
“Rebel Priest stand for fast and hard rock ‘n’ roll. Three of the four songs are absolute party grenades and exude unbridled joy in playing. The EP Lost in Tokyo whets the appetite for more and then screams out live from the stage.” – Soundmagnet
“Lost In Tokyo (single) – A crunching power packed snare drum punch comes crashing through as this shredding beast comes at us full on. Shredding guitar riffs are strewn all over this cranking monster as it ramps up the energy as this fantastic track gathers momentum and brings cool bass chords that deliver a plundering beat that combines well with this fantastic killer track.” – Jace Media
“This record is full of gritty, down ‘n’ dirty fun with a spiked metal grip” – Bravewords
