The 2013 release will be BRMC’s seventh album, following 2010’s ‘Beat The Devil’s Tattoo’. Issuing a statement about the album release, frontman Robert Been wrote:

“I would like to be the first to tell everyone who has been patiently waiting, that the new Black Rebel Motorcycle Club album is officially confirmed to be released in March 2013. This album has taken every last ounce of us to bring to life, and if it wasn’t for you guys keeping us going, we don’t know if it would’ve ever seen the light of day.”

He added: “It’s going to be a joyful day indeed when we get to see you all again and share these songs with you. Peter, Leah and myself are dying to get out of this studio right now and back into the fight. It’s taken us a long while getting back on our feet, but the time has come.”

Manchester Ritz (March 24)
Glasgow ABC (25)
