Rejectionist Front

Rejectionist Front


“Rejectionist Front is more than a happening band with a cookin sound, they are that rare band making important music” say Grammy Award Winner Andy Wallace (Nirvana, Rage Against The Machine, A Perfect Circle, Linkin Park). The band was honored when Wallace mixed the single “Fifty Dollars” from their debut CD, “Shock The Conscious Mass.” The track has played on radio throughout the US.

A dynamic sound and unique vocal merge with Rejectionist Front’s follow-up CD, “Evolve” that will be released later this year. The CD, produced by Brett Hestla from Dark New Day and formerly of Creed, focuses on conflict both within ourselves and throughout society as we struggle for positive change.

RF has been grateful to share the stage with many inspiring artists including Talib Kweli and George Clinton & P-Funk.

In the best spirit of socially conscious music, the band rejects the status quo and seeks constructive change as they combine music with activism. This New York based group consists of founder Michael Perlman, Lincoln Prout, David Dawson and Tony Tino.

The band began at CBGBs and performs at venues throughout the US including BB King, Webster Hall, The Concert Hall, and The Highline Ballroom.

Rejectionist Front has been proud to play in support of vital causes including Rock The Vote, Save Darfur, Wounded Warriors and most recently, Occupy Wall Street.

The Occupy Movement’s rejection of the current societal condition makes it a natural place for Rejectionist Front’s music and message. Perlman is also a member of several working groups at Occupy Wall Street and participates in other efforts to support OWS.

Perlman’s long time activism includes being founder and executive director of Rock To Save Darfur, dedicated to ending the mass killings and slavery in the Sudan. Monies raised at the concert benefits have helped save thousands of lives and free hundreds of slaves in conjunction with partners including Save The Children and Jewish World Watch.

In addition to music, Perlman channels his activism into film and is an award winning director/writer/producer as well as an official Artist For Amnesty.  His films have been broadcast around the world and focus on the struggle for justice through emotional stories of courage and resiliency. He is presently working on a film that highlights, through personal experiences, the breadth and depth of Occupy Wall Street and explores how a reallocation of resources can lead to a just and sustainable future that values people over profit.
