KCRW has been championing Black Rebel Motorcycle Club since the band sent over early demos almost 10 years ago, and the love affair is still in full bloom. The band’s pulse-pounding track, “Evol,” from the their latest LP, Beat the Devil’s Tattoo, has been handpicked as“Today’s Top Tune.” It will air throughout the day on 89.9 FM in LA and is available for free download all day HERE.

Earlier this month, BRMC, just back from their European tour, stopped by KCRW’s “Morning Becomes Eclectic” and delivered a rousing set of songs from their new album as well as classics from their leather-clad songbook. In case you missed it, or just want to listen to it over and over again like we do, the raucous performance is now archived and can be streamed


The threesome are currently refueling from their European tour that covered 71 shows in 95 days through 15 countries and getting a bit of rest before gearing up for even more touring, including jaunts across New Zealand, Australia and Japan followed by a return to Europe for a slew of summer festivals.
