Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club follow the release of their critically acclaimed fourth album 'Baby 81' with a UK tour for July 07. The band will also be releasing a new single 'Berlin' to coincide with the dates.

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club are currently on their biggest headline tour to date in the US and have sold out the entire run of West Coast shows. At the Chicago show the venue had a very early curfew, so the band took to the streets with acoustic guitars after the plug was pulled on their set and continued the gig in an alley until the police came and moved them on.
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club have recently picked up a couple of celebrity endorsements - at the LA show (at the legendary Wiltern Theatre) the actress Marg Helgenberger ('Catherine Willows' in CSI) was spotted at the show and in Japan Johnny Depp was sporting a BRMC patch on his jacket. Rumours that Captain Jack Sparrow was actually based on Peter Hayes have been dismissed out of hand.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
