Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles and NY dates added

Sonic assailants Death From Above have announced that they will hit the road with their friends Black Rebel Motorcycle Club for a co-headlining U.S. tour this fall with support from Deap Vally. The tour kicks off on October 11th in Cleveland and crisscrosses the country culminating in Boston on November 12th. Apart from Boston, additional dates have been added in Chicago, Los Angeles and Huntington, NY as well. This will be one the loudest and most anticipated tours in one of the most dramatic years in American history. To underscore that fact, is it any coincidence that Death From Above and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club will descend upon NYC’s Terminal 5 on November 8th, Election Night 2016? You decide…
Tickets are on sale this Friday, July 28th For more information go to: http://deathfromabove1979.com

Death From Above has this to say about the upcoming co-headline tour w/BRMC & Deap Vally:

“Dear friends, fans, headbangers and shoe shakers, our fall tour with BRMC and Deap Vally is expanding! We’ve just added shows in Boston, Huntington NY, LA and Chicago. Be there, be square, be whatever, we don’t care. Just come! Bring a friend or a lover. Bring your mother. Baby brother. Don’t bring babies. No dogs. Bring a picture of your dog. Wear a shirt with a picture of your cousin on it. Take the bus. Have a beer/juice/water. Call a cab. Carpool with your neighbor. Pet a cat on the street if it lets you, but don’t be too pushy.”

Robert Been of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club

This is your first full tour in the United States in a while! What about this tour are you most excited for?

The timing of it. We’ve been working in the studio writing new songs and so we’ll be able to finally play some new songs for fans live before the album comes out. That’s always fun playing things live before people have heard the record.

Your tourmates this time around are Death from Above. Have you gotten to see them live before?

Leah has, she lived in NYC for a while right before joining BRMC and she was a fan, got to see them over there. I dig their records but somehow we never were in the same city at the same time playing shows, so we missed out.

If you could collaborate with Death from Above on any song live onstage (yours, theirs, or a cover), what would it be?

Ha, we were talking about doing something together live possibly, but I can’t let the cat out of the baggy.

Say you’re on the road, and you have a few fast food options coming up… which drive-thru do you pull through, and what do you order?

Pete probably needs his Starbucks. I need the tastiest burgers. And Leah always just wants to get out of there fast, and to the gig more than anything.

Tell us about the first concert you ever went to.

I traveled around with my dad’s band The Call when I was just a kid, so I remember them touring with Peter Gabriel on the Shock the Monkey tour. That was fun, I remember liking Peter’s face all painted up like a monkey. I was really into monkeys back then.

Who are you excited to see in the crowd this year, either while on tour, at a festival, or during your off time?

There are a lot actually, over the years we’ve had some of the most diehard fans in the states that travel from show to show with us. Sometimes you even forget that they aren’t officially on the tour working or something because they are usually more punctual and reliable than our own crew even. But they’re always good to see once we start up again. Some of them move on over the years and like have a baby or something and then don’t travel as hardcore, but most will still come out at least in their hometown and catch up.

BRMC thanks fans at South American shows

We want to thank everyone who came out to the South American shows, there’s nothing like taking the stage down there, the feeling still resonating at a furiousvolume in my skull even now. Some sounds bite, and others tune you in to the heavy soul resonator. It’s still got teeth and it can kick, but it takes you where you need to go with all your fingers and toes.
We wish we could stay for longer, but we gotta get back to finish recording the next half of this album…
Sorry again for destroying the stage at the end of the show in Santiago, it was out of necessity though, no one else deserves you, and you know it.

Love BRMC-

Spanish translation thanks to Maria Aravena Guerra via BRMC en español  -Fanpage Facebook group:

Queremos dar las gracias a todos los que vinieron a los shows de América del sur, no hay nada como tomar el escenario allá abajo, la sensación sigue resonando a un volumen furioso en mi cráneo, incluso hasta ahora . Algunos sonidos muerden y otros te llevan a conectarte con las profundidades más pesadas del alma. De igual forma tiene dientes y puede patear, pero te lleva donde necesitas llegar con todos tus manos y pies.

 Desearíamos poder habernos quedado más tiempo, pero tenemos que volver a terminar la grabación de la segunda mitad de este álbum.

Lo siento otra vez por destruir el escenario al final del show en Santiago, era innecessario, nadie más te merece, y lo sabes.

Con amor Brmc –

Robert in Sofia, Bulgaria on July 18th

An “unofficial” acoustic set by Robert for any fans in or near Bulgaria was recently posted about on BRMC’s Facebook page, if you go please take some photos and/or video!

Hey guys it’s Robert
– so the BRMC European Tour is now officially over, but before heading home I’m actually going to be passing through Sofia, Bulgaria on July 18th on my own – and I was just wondering if anyone knows of a good bar or park bench in town that might allow me to get away with playing a dozen acoustic songs (without getting arrested). If so, then please post a comment here, and I’ll try to make it.

I guess you could call it an unofficial-acoustic show of sorts.

Unfortunately Pete and Leah both have to fly back home to LA straight away, so I’ll be on my own this time, but… since I’m passing through Bulgaria anyway, I figured ‘What the hell’ I’ll bring my guitar and say hi.

PS: I won’t play at your birthday party.

From
Robert Levon Been

UPDATE: A location has been announced!

Re: Sofia

Thank you all for your help, I think the monument at ‘Boris Gardens’ in Sofia on Saturday, July 18th @ 4pm…
