They followed it with the chart-topping Live at Red Rocks. In 2018, Free Rein was another chart-topping set that expanded the band's sonic palette to include more lover's rock. In 2021 Rebelution issued their seventh full-length effort, a sonically diverse album, In The Moment, featuring guest spots from Kabaka Pyramid, Keznamdi, and Busy Signal, as well as American soul singer Durand Jones. The album debuted at number 2 on the Billboard Reggae Albums chart and number 36 on the Independent Albums chart.
Steel Pulse presented their debut album, Handsworth Revolution, in 1978, and in 1986 they became the first and only non-Jamaican band ever to win the Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album, for their sixth studio album, Babylon The Bandit. Now in 2019, Steel Pulse’s twelfth studio album, Mass Manipulation, was released and reflects four decades of music committed to bettering mankind and was nominated for the 2020 Grammy Awards for Best Reggae Album.
