BRMC’s end of tour Thank You

BRMC’s tour with Death From Above 1979 and Deap Vally ended in Boston on Saturday night and they left us with this photo from DigBoston and some parting words:

Thank you to everyone who came out strong and supported us on tour with our friends ‘Death From Above’ and ‘Deap Vally’. It was sad to say goodbye, but we’ve got a new record to finish tracking…

BRMC posted a video of their cover of “Chelsea Hotel No 2” by Leonard Cohen, who had passed away at 82. It was from The Fillmore in Silver Spring, MD on Friday, November 11, 2016:

After the New York show on November 8th, BRMC also posted a brief commentary on the election:

Before taking the stage in New York on November 8th, tensions were high but still hopes were higher. We played as if there was no tomorrow, as we always do. When we walked off stage however, we found a country shattered and its people torn apart.

There are no adequate words right now, and even though life may appear to be going on as business as usual, beware of the normalization of this election in the days and months ahead. Right-wing movements are gaining unimagined momentum all over the globe, and we are now at the front lines.

Do not refill your prescriptions, do not tune out, do not move to Canada just yet, and don’t think it’s enough tweeting and re-posting all your thoughts/frustrations to friends and family.

This is real. We brought it on ourselves, it’s now our responsibility to oppose right-wing populist movements here and everywhere.

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.”
