Rebel 8 – Fall 2013 “A.C.A.B.” & “Root Of All Evil” collections

Rebel 8 2013 Fall collection is being released in four separate installments. The third drop is called Root Of All Evil. And while money is commonly referred to as such, famed American author Mark Twain once said contradictory that, “the lack of money is the root of all evil.” // Fall ’13 drop 3/4 is now selling at &

In related news: Rebel 8 have decided to open a pop-up store @ their new location in Los Angeles. Here’s what Rebel 8’s Joshy had to say about it: “It’s time for us to commence work on the next big thing. For years we’ve been asked, questioned, begged, and outright told to open up a retail store front. But my answer has always been the same; I won’t say never, but I will say not now. I guess that is, until now. The 10-by-10 box I emotionally spoke about in my 833 blog, will go beyond what it now functions as today, and become another great memory in the history of REBEL8. This 10-by-10 will soon become our pop-up shop.”

About a year and a half ago JOE HARDCORE got in touch with me and asked is D9 was interested in playing This Is Hardcore Fest in august of 2011. In a nutshell, the lineup for that show & the response we got let us know that we COULDN’T put a good thing to rest…
