Black Rebel Motorcycle Club Premiere ‘Little Thing Gone Wild,’ New LP ‘Wrong Creatures’ Due in January (Listen)
Written by: Rock Cellar Magazine Staff
It’s been a few years since California garage-rockers Black Rebel Motorcycle Club‘s most recent album — 2013’s Specter at the Feast — but they’re back and better than ever.
On Tuesday, the band premiered “Little Thing Gone Wild,” a blitz of riffs, energy and howling vocals that sounds just fine alongside some of their career highlights. Take a listen:
The song is the first single off Wrong Creatures, the band’s new full-length due out on January 20, 2018. Some words about the record from the press release, including reflections from singer/guitarist, Peter Hayes:
“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, extols 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.
