BRMC new album and tour

From Robert:

Hello, this is Robert from Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. It's been a long time since i've written to everyone... But I think we have something well worth mentioning. We've just finished work on our 4th album. We're very proud of it and it took a lot of blood sweat and cheers to get it to this point. As far as the mysterious album title goes... Jago thought of calling the album 'BABY 81' a little while back. It comes from a story during the Tsunami about a lost child. It was the 81st baby admitted to this hospital in Kalmunai and nine mothers came forward to claim the child as their own.

There’s so many things to talk about, but i’ll try to keep this short. I know we’ve kept the direction and sound a bit of a secret on this album, but it’s basically what we do best, 3 guys playing rock’n’roll better than any other band can.

It’s our first album with Nick behind the drums since 2003 and it’s our life blood poured into this screaming mangled creation. It’s dirty and it’s beautiful, but the most important thing is that it’s a part of all three of us again.

The official album release date is May 1st 2007 in the states (and we should have the UK and Europe release info next week). I know it might seem like a long time but there will be lots of radio play and online exclusives.

The good news is that we will be doing widespread touring throughout 2007 and dates will be posted very very soon. There are lots of things being talked about so I can’t go into everything just yet.

"Baby 81" will be released on May 1, 2007 through RCA.

The track listing:

1. Took Out a Loan
2. Berlin
3. Weapon of Choice
4. Window
5. Cold Wind
6. Not What You Wanted
7. 666 Conducer
8. All You Do Is Talk
9. Lien on Your Dreams
10. Need Some Air
11. Killing the Light
12. American X
13. Am I Only

There’s a lot more that needs to be said, but there’s even more that needs be done. Besides the fact that I need to get some sleep... I hope you’re all well and I’ll see you on the other side.

Take care

I have great expectations after "Howl." They raised the bar with that album.

From their myspace page:

There’s plenty on Baby 81 to get inspired by: the chunky riff that launches opener “Took Out a Loan”; the massive, Led Zeppelin-style beat propelling “666 Conducer”; the woozy, piano-led “Window,” or the gorgeous symphonic drone of “All You Do Is Talk”. But most surprisingly is how the album somehow ties in all 3 of their previous efforts, while still managing to take a leap forward.

Weapon of Choice is the first single.
