Specter At The Feast will be the band's sixth studio album, set for release through Abstract Dragon Records on the 18th March.
Following 2010's 'Beat The Devil's Tattoo' album, the highly-anticipated forthcoming release is the latest addition to their acclaimed discography, which began with their seminal debut 'B.R.M.C' in 2001.
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 'Specter At The Feast' 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.
"This record took a long time to pull together," explains Robert. "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"
Since the band's debut release in 2001 Black Rebel Motorcycle Club have released five highly regarded studio albums, released two live DVD's including 2010's 'Live in London' and toured relentlessly across the world.
The band will also embark on an eight-date tour of UK & Ireland in March. Support on all dates (except Leeds) comes from The Big Pink.
