Good News! BLACK REBEL MOTORCYCLE CLUB’s new album ‘Specter At The Feast’ is released on March 18th through Abstract Dragon Records. Their UK tour begins 24th March at Manchester’s HMV Ritz.
“This record took a long time to pull together,” explains Robert Levon Been. “I think we all reached the breaking point after our last tour and needed to step back for a bit.
These songs brought us back to life and gave us a second chance. I’ve never been more excited to play an album live before, these songs were born to be loud”
In August 2010, the band unexpectedly and tragically lost someone they often referred to as their fourth member, Michael Been, also bassist Robert Been’s father.
After taking some time off BRMC returned to their roots, their love of making music, and recalled their very first album as a reference.
They recorded the majority of the album at Dave Grohl’s studio in LA on the same console that is featured in Grohl’s upcoming ‘Sound City: The Movie’ documentary (also the same board they recorded their debut album on).
Additional recording was done in Joshua Tree, CA at the infamous Rancho De La Luna Studio before they ventured to Robert Been’s hometown of Santa Cruz, CA to record the rest of the album.
