Free Download: Black Rebel Motorcycle Club

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club comes to The Barrymore Theater on March 15th.

The new album by Black Rebel Motorcycle Cycle Club "Specter at The Feast" hits stores on March 19th. You can download the single "Let The Day Begin" for free:


The lead singer of BRMC, Robert Been, is the son of Michael Been from The Call.  Micahel passed away in 2010 while touring with BRMC as their sound engineer and this cover is the band's way of paying tribute to the man who meant so much to them. 

Here's what Ann Powers from NPR says about them:

"On its sixth studio album, the trio takes a leap inspired by loss  - the fatal 2010 heart attack that claimed Michael Been, father of frontman Robert Levon Been and sound engineer and mentor to the band. The reality of death, which for the mourner centers on the sudden and permanent inability to communicate with a loved one, has made BRMC's music more direct, more heartfelt and more honestly beautiful."
