According to frontman Charlie Steen is "about someone who’s trapped in a relationship and they’re being pummelled into surrender. It’s not about a physically abusive relationship – more an emotionally and psychologically draining one. The call-and-response vocals is the central figure’s own internal dialogue. They are dealing with two different things that they don’t want to address."

If you listen very carefully in the middle of the song, you might hear their voices.”

To put it simply, Matt now rarely misses a Sunday roast!”

Los Angeles rock band Black Rebel Motorcycle Club have announced the release of their new forthcoming album 'Wrong Creatures'.
The follow-up to 2013’s Specter At The Feast, was produced by Nick Launay (Nick Cave, Arcade Fire), and will be out on January 12th, 2018,
Recorded in Los Angeles over the past few years, the band's taken many unlikely twists and turns, yet always remaining focused on the music and returning again to edge of the stage. “It’s a crazy making machine, it can chew you up as fast as it spits you out. A few years back we literally toured till the wheels came off and Leah’s brain literally started leaking out of her head” say’s Been. “It catches up with you, i know i’ve battled on and off with my own depression, and Pete’s head never came with any proper instructions. So you just gotta keep pushing buttons to see what happens.”
Ultimately, the band may well be survivors of an era where rock’n’roll can often be overshadowed by dance pop, and garish commercialism. Robert Levon Been; “We are truly an island – come hell or high water, so it’s usually best to dress accordingly. Though i’m not sure what the proper attire is when drowning in fire. But leather usually goes with everything.”
