Black Rebel Motorcycle Club (BRMC) is an American rock band from San Francisco, California, now based in Los Angeles. BRMC is known for their garage rock, blues, folk revival, neo-psychedelia sound. They are influenced by bands such as: The Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Verve, The Rolling Stones, Oasis, T. Rex, The Velvet Underground and The Jesus and Mary Chain.
A song by B.R.M.C., “Done All Wrong”, appeared on the soundtrack to the 2009 film New Moon.
BRMC’s sixth studio album, Beat The Devil’s Tattoo was released March 8, 2010 in the UK & Europe and March 9, 2010 in North America. The band went on a world tour that lasted from February to December.
On August 19, 2010, after the band’s performance at the Pukkelpop Festival in Belgium, Robert’s father Michael Been died backstage of a heart attack.
On November 1, 2010, the band has released their second live DVD, called Live In London, on their own website and at HMV stores in the UK. The DVD would also be for sale at the band’s headlining shows throughout the tour. It was filmed in front of a sold-out London Forum on April 23, the same year. This is the last project Michael Been has worked on with the band, mixing it.
As of 2011, the band has started working on their 7th album, which will be released sometime in 2013. In between the recording sessions the band has performed a South American tour and played their first shows in South Africa, as part of the Synergy Festival in Cape Town and China, in Beijing and Shanghai.
The band went on a brief, yet successful three-show tour of small clubs in California to promote the album. These shows were at Slim’s in San Francisco, The Catalyst in Santa Cruz, and The Troubador of Los Angeles on the 19th, 20th, and 21st of December, respectively. All three shows sold out and B.R.M.C. played to packed houses each night where the setlist ranged from classics to quite a bit of new material. Fans came from as far as China to see the band perform live after such a long period of seemingly inactivity.
After the success of these first shows, the band announced several more shows accross Europe with stops in the United Kindom, Germany, and Italy among other countries. The last announced show will be at the Austin Psych Fest on April 26,2013.
