BLACK REBEL MOTORCYCLE CLUB have announced the forthcoming release of their new album.
Their first full length release in nearly five years, the upcoming project is entitled Wrong Creatures and will be unveiled on the 12th January 2018.
Steeped in their traditionally ominous and pulsating take on rock ‘n’ roll, the band have marked the announcement of the upcoming record with the unveiling of ‘Little Thing Gone Wild’, an uproarious new single which displays a band whose effectiveness has not diminished over the course of their break.
Produced by Nick Launey (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Arcade Fire), the new record was largely written in a North Hollywood hideout known as ‘The Bunker’ and appears to be the product of a lengthy period of personal upheaval for each band member.
After temporarily putting a halt to proceedings in order for drummer Leah Shapiro to get life-saving surgery, Robert Levon Been has also stated that:
“it’s a crazy making machine, it can chew you up good, I mean we literally toured ‘till the wheels came off and Leah’s brain literally started leaking out of her head. I know I’ve battled on and off with mental depression, and Pete’s head never came with any proper instructions.”
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club will play a sold out show at Glasgow’s hallowed Barrowlands on the 26th October as part of their forthcoming UK tour.
