New Black Rebel Motorcycle Club! The new album, Specter at the Feast, comes out next week. "Let the Day Begin" is actually a cover of a song by The Call.
Robert Levon Been, bassist for BRMC, is the son of Michael Been of The Call, who died of a heart attack in 2010 at a concert where he was working as a sound engineer for BRMC. Micheal Been and The Call's drummer, Scott Musick, were originally from Oklahoma.
Here's a link to a short film series about the making of the new record. Robert speaks, heart-breakingly, about continuing to make music after the death of his father.
