Guitarist/vocalist Sal Medrano says, "How do we follow up "Rock and Roll In America" when the whole country has gone to shit? By doing the only thing that can save us, playing Rock & Roll. "Sounds from the Massachusetts Turnpike" pays homage to our great state, navigating through twist and turns of feelings. It's okay to not be okay. Let's rock."

The band, two-time nominees for a Boston Music
Award for 'Punk Artist of the Year' (in 2014 & 2016), has also announced a summer tour with fellow Boston
punks Choke Up, which kicks off August 8 in Pittsburgh, PA and winds down with a hometown at Boston's Great Scott on September
Since their beginning in 2013, Rebuilder has refused to follow the rules. Their first show was at a bar playing to no one. Their second show was playing to a sold-out crowd with The Dropkick Murphys
- Thats definitely against the rules.
So what has Rebuilder been up to since the release of their debut full length "Rock and Roll in America"? Well they've been doing just that. The self proclaimed gnarly-punk band from Boston
has piled into their van, and brought their brand of never-say-die Rock & Roll to the people. Tireless travel up and down both coasts, throughout the Midwest, and even crossing the occasional boarder into Canada and Mexico, Rebuilder has put the pedal through the floor since their inception.
Their newest release on Panic State
Records, an EP entitled "Sounds from the Massachusetts Turnpike", is a fervent and rambunctious follow-
up to RNRIA. With power and intensity, this record widens and solidifies Rebuilders sonic footprint in the landscape of rock and roll, re-thinking the traditional three chord punk song and developing their own unique style. Sounds
from the Massachusetts Turnpikecomes out Sept 1st and was recorded, mixed and mastered by Jay Maas at Getaway Studios in Haverhill, MA.
Rebuilder will continue to pick up the pieces of a broken scene, and cast aside a broken system. They will soldier on, and rebuild the community of sounds that has given them so much to be thankful for.
Refuse, Rethink, Rebuild. Rebuilder is Sal Ellington (vocals, guitar), Craig
Stanton (vocals, guitar), Daniel
Carswell (bass), Brandon
Phillips (drums), Patrick Hanlin (electric keyboard and organ).
Praise for Rebuilder:
"Rebuilder need to get on the road with some of skate-punk and pop-punks great masters, like the Descendents
and NOFX. Their one-two punch of two lead vocalists and straight barre-chord punk is catchy as hell, and deserves to be heard by the masses."- Do 617
"Loud, fast, pop punk with attitude."-Daykamp Music
"Rebuilder are the best kind of in-between from hardcore punk and early 90s skate punk. Bigass hooks, singalong choruses, gritty palm-muted guitars...go do a kickflip, break your wrist, and go to a Rebuilder show in your cast. Thats how it should be."- Allston Pudding
"A killer punk screed neednt exceed two minutes. Economical and phenomenal." - Boston
