Some Rebellious New BRMC Dates

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club is revving its engines for a major road trip. The rockers have nearly 30 U.S. and Canadian headline dates booked for April through June, along with a previously announced trek through Europe.

This is the first full-fledged tour BRMC has embarked on since its 2010 tour in support of Beat The Devil’s Tattoo. Now the band has another album coming out. Marking the band’s seventh LP, Specter At The Fest is due out March 18 in the U.K. and Europe, followed by the U.S. and Canada release March 19.

The band has also been busy putting together a six-part short film series about its time in the studio. The third installment was posted on BRMC’s website over the weekend. Check it out at the bottom of this post.
