BRMC recorded in a threadbare east London studio and described as “raw” and “live sounding”, the second album from Black Rebel Motorcycle Club is one of this year’s most eagerly-anticipated records.
‘Take Them On, On Your Own‘, it sees BRMC capturing the energy of their live shows and shifting up two or three gears.
Last week, BRMC bassist/guitarist Robert Turner took time out from putting the finishing touches of the LP in LA to talk exclusively about each track.
“We put a lot of heart into it”, explains Turner. “We want it to be taken with all seriousness”.
And as for the title?
“Oh, ‘Take Them On, On Your Own’ was a song that was just this wall of white noise that was pretty beautiful. It felt right as the title for this collection of songs.
I like the idea that the title is a command. It’s not passive. It fits with the spirit of the whole thing. That song will probably be a B-side on the first single. Now do you want to know about this record or not?”
“This whole album is going to remind people why you need a bass player in you band!” Robert Turner.
