Artist: Panic & The Rebel Emergency, Album: Captured By A Vision, Song: Wander Far Away
"There's no boundary for your thoughts. Let your mind wander far away." As the story goes, Toronto rock band, The Rebel Emergency, were looking for a studio to record their debut album in and found one in the Bronx, New York. One of the resident producers at the studio was a reggae artist named, Panic. Following a recording session, Panic and the band decided to jam which led to the recording of an album. That album was Captured By A Vision and it was released in 2005. It is a melting pot of reggae, rock and ska. One of the more relaxed tracks is a tune called Wander Far Away. The band played shows and festivals in the U.S., Jamaica as well as Canada in support of this release and received a great deal of positive press. Panic decided to leave the band for personal reasons following this release. The Rebel Emergency returned in 2008 with their debut EP that contains re-recorded versions of some of the songs from Captured By A Vision. In 2009, they released their first full length album of new material. The band is set to release their third album this year. You can follow them at http://www.myspace.com/rebelemergencymusic.
