It's been well over two years since leather-clad rock trio Black Rebel Motorcycle Club released their middling Beat the Devil's Tattoo album. After a long wait, however, we'll be rewarded with a new album in the first quarter of next year.
In a post on their Facebook page, the band confirmed the new material with the following statement:
Hey guys, I would like to be the first to tell everyone who has been patiently waiting, that the new Black Rebel Motorcycle Club album is officially confirmed to be released in March 2013. This album has taken every last ounce of us to bring to life, and if it wasn't for you guys keeping us going, we don't know if it would've ever seen the light of day. It's going to be a joyful day indeed when we get to see you all again and share these songs with you. Peter, Leah and myself are dying to get out of this studio right now and back into the fight. It's taken us a long while getting back on our feet, but the time has come.
The album's official title and release date have yet to be confirmed, but the news should be enough to ramp up anticipation in BRMC fans.
The group also have some tour dates confirmed in America and Europe (none in Canada, sadly). The dates can be viewed on the band's site.
