Black Rebel Motorcycle Club announce new album 'Wrong Creature'
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club have announced their forthcoming album Wrong Creatures, out on January 12, 2018. Today, the band has shared first single “Little Thing Gone Wild”, which is now available to stream. The California-based band consists of Peter Hayes (vocal, guitar, harmonica), Robert Levon Been (vocal, bass, guitar), and Leah Shapiro (drums). Wrong Creatures was produced by Nick Launay (Nick Cave, Arcade Fire).

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. Yet their focus still firmly set on returning to edge of the stage, never resting on their laurels and bringing people further into their live experience. “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” say’s Been. “I know i’ve battled on and off with mental depression, and Pete’s head never came with any proper instructions.”

“I find myself writing about death a lot,” says Hayes. “I find myself having a discussion with death, which sounds dark. For me, it’s dark humor.” Talking about mortality allows Hayes to explore life’s great mistakes and regrets. Channeling them through rolling riffs and dirge-laden rhythms, however, extolls the demons within. It’s a great catharsis for the band, and it’s a great unifier for their audience who can also seek solace in the emotional heft.

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club also announced their North American tour which will be kicking off on January 15, 2018 with dates in Washington DC, Boston, Brooklyn, Los Angeles, and more. The trio will also be hitting Europe and the UK for select tour dates this fall beginning October 23.

“Musicians have always been at the forefront of social change and we are honored that Black Rebel Motorcycle Club have chosen to support War Child through Plus 1. In the midst of the worst refugee crisis since World War II and famine spreading across Eastern Africa, the need for our work has never been greater. The funds raised through this impactful partnership will benefit War Child’s humanitarian programs in support of children and families living with war at a time when the organization’s work is so critically needed.” -Dr. Samantha Nutt, Founder, War Child USA and War Child Canada
