Interview: Black Rebel Motorcycle Club

Wednesday 13th November, 2013 9:15AM

San Franciscan rock 'n rollers Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, released their seventh studio album (their first in three years, since 2010's Beat the Dragon's Tattoo) earlier this year. Called Specter at the Feast, the title is taken from Shakespeare's Macbeth, and alludes to the spirit in which the songs were written: they're about tragedy (Robert Been's father and frontman of band The Call died directly preceeding the writing process), and finding a way to rise up out of it. Black Rebel Motorcycle Club are heading to New Zealand next week for two shows, and UnderTheRadar caught up with Robert Been to discuss this difficult time in the band's history, how it feels to have publicly released an album about such personal subject matter and, whatever happened to our rock 'n roll'.
