Chris sits down with Leah Shapiro and Peter Hayes – two thirds of the rock trio Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. For those not already familiar with the band, BRMC has been cranking out dark, gritty, authentic rock and roll for over 20 years.  If you’re a fan of the band and you ever wanted to hang and really get to know the incredible musicians behind the music this is your day. It was a great conversation.

Robert Levon Been for Team Joe

Robert Levon Been…

‘Don’t give yourselves to brutes.
You have the love of humanity in your hearts. You don’t hate. Only the unloved hate, the unloved and the unnatural’

The Vacant Lots release Robert Levon Been (BRMC) remix of “Departure”

New Vacant Lots track remix by Robert Levon Been (BRMC) Via Louder Than War:

Blending proto-punk and psych as effortlessly as you’d expect from a Vacant Lots release, the Departure remix sees throbbing Nightclubbing-esque electronics interlaced with distorted, hard-hitting guitars and vocals that are just as snarling as they are detached. First conceived when The Vacant Lots were writing their 2014 Departure LP but left unreleased and having now evolved over the years since, the song became a staple of the band’s visceral live performances and is now set for a long-overdue vinyl release in the form of a 7” with an etched B-side that’s limited to 500 copies.

Talking about the Departure remix – mastered by Maurizio Baggio (Boy Harsher, The Soft Moon, Merchandise) and housed in stark, minimalistic artwork by longtime visual collaborator Ivan Liechti – The Vacant Lots’ Jared Artaud, says: “In order to translate our recorded songs into our live set we continually have to reinterpret our music and transform them, since there are only two of us. However, with this remix, Robert has done the reverse and brought the live spirit of this song back into the recorded one. It’s something only he can do. He added some sounds that truly make it more dynamic and powerful. It’s an honour to collaborate with someone from one of my favorite bands of all time.”

Psycho Las Vegas postponed to August 19-22, 2021

Posted on Psycho Las Vegas’s Facebook Event page a few days ago:

Attention current and future ticket holders:

Gambling is in our blood but we can’t roll the dice on this one–Psycho Swim and Psycho Las Vegas have been rescheduled to August 19-22, 2021. Nearly all bands have signed on for the new dates but we are awaiting confirmation from one final artist before presenting our updated lineup. We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience.

Once our updated lineup is announced, refunds will be available for anyone who can’t join us in 2021, and hotel rooms purchased through the Fan Block will be automatically refunded. For more information, please visit our Festival FAQ.

Psycho Las Vegas 2020 lineup

UPDATE: More info from Las Vegas Weekly:

Topping the bill are three metal giants: New Jersey’s Danzig, scheduled to perform 1990 album Danzig II: Lucifuge in its entirety; Denmark’s Mercyful Fate; and Norway’s Emperor—the latter two making their only U.S. appearances of the year.

The festival’s fifth Vegas edition will take place August 14-16 at venues across Mandalay Bay including the Events Center, House of Blues and Mandalay Bay Beach, with the annual Psycho Swim party kicking things off one night earlier at Daylight Beach Club.

Danzig also headlined Psycho Las Vegas in 2018, playing 1992 album Danzig III: How the Gods Kill (and frontman Glenn Danzig returned to headline the fest as a member of The Original Misfits last year), and Mercyful Fate vocalist King Diamond headlined Psycho Las Vegas in 2017.

Among others added to the bill are alternative rock veterans The Flaming Lips; metal supergroup Down, fronted by ex-Pantera frontman Phil Anselmo; garage-rock outfit Black Rebel Motorcycle Club; Scandinavian metal bands Satyricon and Katatonia; and recently reunited Las Vegas mathcore favorites Curl Up and Die.

They join a list of previously revealed artists including Blue Öyster CultTy SegallWarpaintBlonde RedheadWatainUlverAt the GatesPoison the WellThursdayPinbackBorisWindhandCursive and Brutus.

Passes for Psycho Las Vegas are on sale now for $229 plus fees and taxes at and, along with tickets to Psycho Swim ($55 plus fees and taxes).

Update from Psycho 2020 Facebook Event page on March 19, 2020:

An important update from Psycho Entertainment HQ:

Preparations for Psycho Las Vegas 2020 are moving forward as scheduled, with no current plans to postpone. We’re hunkered down in our doomsday bunker (the same one we’ve been occupying since 2013) using this time in isolation to hammer out production, merch designs, set times, and every little thing that goes into making Psycho Las Vegas America’s greatest rock n’ roll festival.

We’ve always been somewhat of an oasis; a musical gathering that exists in a surreal plane of existence where time stands still one weekend a year for us Psychos. The whole world feels like it exists on that plane right now, and we’re all on this wild ride together. It’s not just live entertainment or your local concert venue that is affected by this; we all are, and coming out of this healthy and stronger than we were before is the Psycho way.

See you in August!
