Black Rebel Motorcycle Club Premiere ‘Little Thing Gone Wild,’ New LP ‘Wrong Creatures’ Due in January (Listen)

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.

The album was produced by Nick Launay, who’s worked in the past with acts such as Arcade Fire and Nick Cave. Pre-orders for Wrong Creatures are up now at the band’s official site.
