Black Rebel Motorcycle Club is a rock n’ roll band based in Los Angeles that’s been killing it as an independent for most of their 14 years as a band. Their new record, Specter At The Feast, dropped two weeks ago on March 19 through their own label, Abstract Dragon, and indie label, Vagrant Records. Fans around the world have been anticipating the release since BRMC’s acclaimed 2010 album, Beat The Devil’s Tattoo. Starting in December 2012, the band released a short film every week that chronicles the making of the new record, filmed and directed by Malia James. You can start here with the first of six videos:
I don’t need to say much here because, as you can already see, there’s plenty of content to go along with this release. It won’t be long before you begin to hear these songs in film, TV, video games, and essentially most places that music is heard. The first single, “Let the Day Begin,” is actually a cover of hit from 1989 by The Call. It’s available on a free EP download at blackrebelmotorcycleclub.com along with another new song, “Returning.” Have a listen to the single here:

Composed of Pater Hayes, Robert Levon Been, and Leah Shapiro, BRMC also happen to be incredible live, so make sure you check out their upcoming tour dates while you’re there. I want this record to be something special for all who listen, so I’m going to shut up and let you do just that… listen.
