Rebuild Cobb Studio & Nicgorski home.

“Our long time friends in The Cobbs need a little help and support. Last month their home studio in Philly was destroyed by fire and water damage.
This home served as a shelter from the storm for many bands over the years, including ourselves, recording much of the ‘Howl’ & ‘Beat The Devils Tattoo’ album in their tiny basement studio. The Nicgorski’s took us in, gave us a place to hide out and record, and never asked for anything in return (except for us to take their daughters 
Please help in anyway you can, thank you-
-BRMC”

Visit Billy Nicgorski’s GoFundMe campaign and help add to the fundraiser and to receive updates on the studio. Here is a little more about what happened:

“On Tuesday April 29th in the middle of the night we had a catastrophe at the studio. On the second floor of the house we had a major water overflow that spread down into the basement studio causing an electrical fire and massive water damage. It was a complete loss. We are covered by insurance but as you would expect it is only covering a small portion of the damage.

We really need your help to bring back the studio and to rebuild our lives. If you know me you know it’s really hard for me to ask for help. A friend suggested that I put this together.

Thanks for all of your support. It means everything to me to get the studio back and to fix my home.

Thanks
Billy -Paul -Maria Nicgorski Ryan Bernstein”

BRMC Graffiti Guerrilla

This video was posted a couple weeks ago and it’s great to see a full article (in French) on the artists! Excerpt of the article through Google Translate:

“This beautiful graffiti is the result of a collaboration between Diskaerosol , graffiti artist Charly and Aurélie Compain a Berruyère that after working in the music industry, is involved in the creation of music and video. What inspired this project? The American rock band Black Rebel Motorcycle Club (BRMC dubbed) .

The duo decided to imagine and realize a graffiti referring to BRMC, visual novel. He had to act fast, “so that it fits with the French group tour ( from February 5 to 24, note ).  “On January 17, the duo moved under the bridge bypass: Diskaerosol going all day spray paint in hand, then Aurelie Compain filmed the whole execution of the work. “We arrived at 10 am and did not stop until the last ray of sunshine! “She recalls.

She shot a video edited in fast motion where you can see, about 4 minutes, the fresco rise gradually. Music by BRMC, obviously.”

BRMC score the dark comedy “Life After Beth”

Earlier today, BRMC announced their involvement in creating the musical score for a film called ‘Life After Beth‘ premiering at Sundance Film Festival this week:

“For all you film lovers out there, BRMC have created the musical score to a new dark comedy ‘Life After Beth’. It will be premiering at the Sundance Film Festival this week. Directed by Jeff Baena, the film stars Anna Kendrick, Aubrey Plaza, John C. Riley, and Dane DeHann. Unfortunately since this is the first film festival that it is being presented at, there is no trailer as of yet, but we’ll keep you posted.”

Here’s more info and photos on the film from Sundance’s website:

lifeafterbethlifeafterbeth1lifeafterbeth2

2014, 91 minutes, color, U.S.A., U.S. Dramatic

Zach is devastated by the unexpected death of his girlfriend, Beth. When she miraculously comes back to life, Zach takes full advantage of the opportunity to experience all the things he regretted not doing when she was alive. However, the newly returned Beth isn’t quite the way he remembered her, and before long, Zach’s world takes a turn for the worse.

Imitating what Dr. Frankenstein did with his monster, writer/director Jeff Baena assembles disparate parts of his film into a new whole and jolts fresh life into it. By fusing elements of a young love story and a zombie movie, he concocts a wickedly funny and shockingly poignant film. With its killer soundtrack and all-star cast, including Aubrey Plaza, whose distinctive delivery has never been used to greater effect, and Dane DeHaan, who perfectly embodies the suffering of a young man with a broken heart and a rotting girlfriend, Life After Beth will leave you dying to see it again. – T.G.

Here’s a video of the Director Jeff Baena speaking about the film:

For those of you who really take the bull by the horns, there will be a limited number of free tickets (and after show passes) to the upcoming BRMC European tour dates.”

BRMC in Indonesia

The Indonesian shows looked quite amazing and there were tons of awesome photos and reviews, thanks to the many dedicated fans, talented photographers and writers attending the show. Photos and reviews from Shutterbeater (Jovy Aidil Akbar), Nara Pratama, and SUB Magazine made me wish and feel like I was there. Here are also some great videos by ziad alfarabi and  that helped a lot too!

Clockenflap set time & Bandung venue change

brmcjapanWhile in Japan, BRMC did signing sessions for fans before (and after) the 3 shows they played. They also helped promote the movie “Only Lovers Left Alive” which features their song “Red Eyes and Tears” on the soundtrack. This photo from the Ebisu LIQUIDROOM signing was posted on the Japanese Facebook page for the movie.

According to the film’s Wikipedia: “Only Lovers Left Alive is a 2013 romance drama vampire film written and directed by Jim Jarmusch, starring Tom HiddlestonTilda SwintonMia WasikowskaJohn Hurt andAnton Yelchin. It was nominated for the Palme d’Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival.” Sounds like it’ll be an interesting movie!

BRMC’s set time for Clockenflap Festival in Hong Kong is 9pm to 10pm on Friday, November 29th. As for the Bandung show on December 1st, it was recently moved to a new venue called Dago Tea House. If you happen to be in Hong Kong or Indonesia for those shows, then definitely make sure you don’t miss them!
