Robert Levon Been on Facebook Live + new track “Haunt”

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club’s new track, Haunt, off their upcoming album, Wrong Creatures, is available now as an instant download when you pre-order the album! http://smarturl.it/BRMC-WrongCreatures

Haunt

Take yourself apart from me
Down into a flame
You’re everything one could keep
You’re worn with every face

Rapping like a scarecrow’s wings, you unwind
I’m thrown to a seamless wave,
And it’s written on a sea of love
And It’s all I can leave you babe
‘Cos the world was never yours
I just keep playing that restless haunt
Nothing I can change

Swallow what’s still brave in you
Like metal in your jaw
Trying not to melt away
Beginning to unthaw

Dead flag, ship of fools you command
I’m trying not to wither away
And I’m wondering if I’ll feel the grace
I’m trying to unlove this world
But it has no other place
I just keep playing that empty hand
Nothing I can cheat

Can you touch
Can you stay
Would you weep, for the day
You knew when your eyes closed
But you knew when your eyes closed
Can you want
Can you stay
Would you reach, around me

Light another melody
And drown into the sound
I’ve buried every living thing
Deeper than the ground

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.

Night Beats “VULTURES” ft. Robert Levon Been

Looks like we can listen to the new Night Beats track “Vultures” that Robert Levon Been performed on:

Hey folks, so back when Leah was getting her new brain installed, I met up with the band the Night Beats and helped co-produce and perform on their upcoming album ‘Who Sold My Generation’ (along with Nick Jodoin at home studio in Echo Park).

I just got word though that the first single ‘No Cops’ is being released as 7 inch vinyl, along with the b-side ‘Vultures’ which we co-wrote together just for some late night fun.

Anyway it’s about as weird as weird gets without adult supervision.
hope you enjoy-

From
Robert Levon Been

‘VULTURES’
It’s not the same, not the same, not the same old sound yeah
You used to ignore but you had to get closer yeah
I know there’s something in the soul of a vulture see,
Inside the glove is the hand that will hold you
Whisper words as you’re close to another
Raise your voice stand at your altar

It’s not the song that stops,
It’s just the devil’s watch, hypnotized by the side of a mountain
Blinded by the walls on the side of the story, burnin’ in your eyes with a neon glory

It’s not the same not the same not the same old way yeah
You used to ignore but you moved from the summer yeah
I know there’s something in the soul of a vulture’s mouth
Inside the glove is the hand that’ll take you out

You have been sold and bought,
lost in a chinese market in the year of the cock with a rodent
wishin’ to the stars when you’re down on the bottom,
even when you’re good you just think your rotten,
swearin’ to your cause, I don’t think you’re a martyr,
even for a God I don’t think you’d applaud

I know it’s right I know its cold, I know its closer to you
I know it’s right I know its cold, I know its closer to you my love, and I’d hate for you, to turn me around
