After the release of Happy Miserable and parting ways with long time lead guitarist Danny Halminiak, Chris Rogner, Mark Halminiak and Mickey Molinari wanted to do something they’ve always talked about doing but never did, polish up their sound. The addition of new lead guitarist Mikey Cheiro gave them the ability and fire they needed. After writing four songs that Chris, Mark, Mickey and Mikey were all pleased with they needed someone to capture the renewed sound that they successfully cultivated. Local Chicago producers Joe Dilillo and Joshua Starr at Solid Sound Studios were just the ones that were up for the challenge. Joe and Josh were able to keep the raw sound the August Premier has become known for while managing to give the music a much bigger and fine tuned sound that focuses primarily on melodies and harmonies. A change of pace from past recordings.

Rebel Without Applause is the shortest album August Premier has ever released, but it’s easily the record that they're proudest of, having put more time, thought, emotion and effort into the writing and recording process than any other project to date.
