share new track





Black Rebel Motorcycle Club have shared a new track, ‘Echo’, from their forthcoming album Wrong Creatures – out this Friday, January 12 on Abstract Dragon via [PIAS] Co-Op.

The band have already treated fans to four tracks from the album. First single ‘Little Thing Gone Wild‘ is a dirty, sexy, rollicking ride of big licks and heavy bass which was the inspiration for the LP’s title, drawing on a lyrical passage: “Lord you hear me loud into my soul speaker, why won’t you let me out, you’ve got the wrong creature”.  Next up came the Cave-esque murder balladry of ‘Haunt‘, followed by ‘Question of Faith’ and ‘King Of Bones’.

The widely acclaimed California-based band consists of Peter Hayes (vocal, guitar, harmonica), Robert Levon Been (vocal, bass, guitar), and Leah Shapiro (drums). They’ve been crafting perfectly honed, bluesy, psychedelic garage-rock since 1998 and this will be the final instant grat track before the release of Wrong Creatures, their 8th studio album. Produced by Nick Launay (Nick Cave, Arcade Fire), it is released this Friday and was awarded 4 stars by Q magazine who noted that “the band’s mastery of (bad) mood has only matured with age.”

Recorded in Los Angeles, Wrong Creatures takes a journey throughout rock’s history, taking unlikely twists and turns, both peppered with historic influences but also having one foot firmly in the present. Their focus is still firmly set on returning to edge of the stage, never resting on their laurels and bringing people further into their live experience.

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club have learned how to cut out all the noise and concentrate on what matters. Says Robert Levon Been: “We are truly an island – come hell or high water, so it’s usually best to dress accordingly. Though I’m not sure what the proper attire is when drowning in fire. But leather usually goes with everything.”

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club have just delighted their UK & European fans with an extensive tour, and will be bringing their leather-clad live show to Australia in March 2018. Details below.
