Rebuilder is a Boston based band with a modern punk sound and old school roots. Formed in January 2013, Rebuilder has already cultivated a following in their hometown and across the country – opening for Dropkick Murphys, The Dead Milkmen, Frank Turner, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Diarrhea Planet, Banner Pilot and performing on Warped Tour, Fest, and Pouzza Fest. Members Sal Ellington (guitar and lead vocals), Craig Stanton (lead guitar and vocals), Daniel Carswell (Bass), Rick Smith (Electric Piano and Organ), and Brandon Phillips (drums) are all friends with the common goal of creating their own fresh and invigorating take on punk rock music. Rebuilder just released their self-titled EP on their label Refuse, Rethink, Rebuild Records and is ready to take over the world.
“Rebuilder need to get on the road with some of skate-punk and pop-punk’s 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 90’s 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. That’s how it should be.” – Adam Parshall Allston Pudding
“A killer punk screed needn’t exceed two minutes. Economical and phenomenal.” – Jed Gottlieb Boston Herald
