“Rebel Revolution” finds Sizzy Rocket joining forces with longtime collaborator Benny Reiner and 3x GRAMMY® Award-nominated super-producer Fernando Garibay, known for his work with Lady Gaga on such era-defining albums as 2011’s 4x RIAA platinum milestone, Born This Way.
“I wanted to make a hot, gay summer anthem,” Sizzy Rocket says. “Honestly, ‘Rebel Revolution’ is about being gay as fuck. I had to free myself and let go of the fear I was harboring from being shamed and told to hide my gayness early in my career. It’s about taking my power back, the idea that true rebellion comes from within. A rebel is simply someone who dares to show themselves to the world – and this song is calling all rebels.”
“I had been doing a lot of songwriting with Fernando Garibay at his studio and it was a dream of mine to get him on the track – ‘Born This Way’ was such a defining record in my life. I was nervous to ask but he actually said yes and we banged out the production in two intense days. He has a way of tapping into an artist’s true essence – the process transformed me and brought my inner pop diva to life. It just means so much to finally feel strong in my own skin and carry on such a powerful message.”
Sizzy Rocket will celebrate “Rebel Revolution” with an eagerly awaited live performance at the hugely popular West Coast weekly LGBTQ+ event, Tiger Heat, set for Los Angeles, CA’s AVALON Hollywood on Thursday, June 9. Additional North American dates will be announced soon.
