Where are you from and when did you get started?
Rebel’s End is a Belgian sleazy hard rock band.
We are based in Antwerp and we started out in 2015 when our previous bands ceased to exist to form the current line- up.
Who are you and who does what in the band?
My name is Jeff James and I am the vocalist/guitarist. The core of the band will have to be our drummer Dol and I. We’ve been playing since 2009 and have lived together for a short while. Any ideas for new songs will be filtered through Dol to get the right groove. He also has a lot to do with sounding good on stage. Our bassplayer Stijn loves to tribute in the songwriting process and adds balls to songs already written. Live, he brings the attitude 200%. Our lead guitarist Rutger brings the flavor with razor sharp leads n licks. Loves to write and is ace in managment and bookings. My biggest love has to be composing and writing music. To start out from a riff or vocal line and then transform that into a whole song is amazing. I also try to sing not too badly ☺.
How would you best describe the sound?
Sleazy hard rock with a punk attitude and metal influences. We aim for modern sounding rock with a catchy sing a long chorus.
Dream rock moment (real or not)?
The Guns n Roses “not in this lifetime tour”. Seeing duff axl and slash reunited after all these years. Would have been better with izzy but hey, we saw them this summer and it was awesome. Goosebumps.
Still got day jobs?
Unfortunately, yeah we do ☺.
Yeah , that we were born too late ☺
