Formed in the late '90s, pioneering mash-ups of scorching Rock and searing Rap, the first incarnation of Rehab was two guys, Brooks Buford and Danny 'Boone' Alexander, who grew up poor white trash in the small town of Warner Robbins, Georgia USA. The two met in a rehab clinic, discovered a mutual love for Rock and hip-hop and decided to make music together.
In October 2000, with a major label deal with Sony, Rehab released its
debut album, "Southern Discomfort", filled with an array of
guest vocalists + rappers. The album reached #22 on the Billboard's Top
Heatseekers chart selling over 140,000 units and spun off the Modern Rock
top 20 hit "It Don't Matter". This success enabled the band
to kick off a two year national tour supporting the Vans Warped Tour and
bands like Kottonmouth Kings
and Linkin Park. Then, in 2005, in
the wake of diverging creative, personal and financial points of view,
the group splintered.
However, Danny Boone brought together a new version of the band, with lead guitarist Mike Hartnett, rhythm guitarist Foz, bassist Hano Leathers and drummer Chris Hood. The Atlanta-based quintet delivered the d.i.y. Rehab's sophomore effort, "Graffiti The World", in the summer of 2005 to very little attention.
Three years later, in July 2008, "Graffiti The World" was re-release on Universal Republic Records featuring two brand new tracks and a new version of "Sittin' At A Bar" which was originally found on "Southern Discomfort"; the track re-titled "Bartender Song (Sittin' At A Bar)" managed to break The Hot Modern Rock chart peaking at #11.
September 2010 saw the release of the outfit's next studio album, "Welcome Home", whose title-track scraped the lower reaches of the Active Rock chart.
Unsatisfied with the effort of Universal label to market the album, the band requested a release from their deal and immediately signed a four-album deal with Nashville powerhouse indie label AVJ Records who released "Gullible's Travels" in February 2012.
