Coming up: Black Rebel Motorcycle Club Irish dates and new album

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club kick off their latest tour in Ireland next month

SET to kick off their latest tour in Ireland next month, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club have announced further details of their forthcoming new album.

The San Francisco-based psychedelic scuzzers are currently putting the finishing touches to Wrong Creatures. Their eighth LP, the follow-up to 2013's Specter At The Feast, is not due for release until January 12 next year.

However, earlier this week, BRMC (Peter Hayes on vocals/guitar, Robert Levon Been on bass/vocals and drummer Leah Shapiro) released the first teaser track from the new record: Little Thing Gone Wild is a swampy bass-led and harmonica-smeared stomper that, aside from being practically guaranteed to get crowds moving on the upcoming tour – which begins with a sold-out engagement at Dublin's Academy on October 23 – also has the distinction of providing the inspiration for the upcoming LP's title with the line: "Lord, you hear me loud into my soul speaker, why won't you let me out, you've got the wrong creature."

Like, yeah, man.

Pre-sales for Wrong Creatures are now up and running, with the album available as a standard CD and as part of a deluxe version which comes with a custom BRMC harmonica made by Hohner.

Meanwhile tickets for the second date of the tour at The Limelight in Belfast on October 24 are still available.

:: Tickets priced £22.50 from Ticketmaster outlets and Katy's Bar
