MP3 At 3PM: Black Rebel Motorcyle Club

Between tours in support of its fifth album, Beat The Devil’s Tattoo (Vagrant), Black Rebel Motorcycle Club recorded an iTunes Live Session, which is available now. The seven-song release features tracks from the new album, as well as fan favorites from previous records. The band also recorded a live version of “The Line,” a bonus track from the session that’s available for free below. Like its recorded counterpart on 2005’s Howl, the iTunes version of the song is a spartan affair, featuring only the lead vocal and a haunting acoustic melody, while the plodding percussion seen on the album is left out of the arrangement completely. Catch BRMC on tour this fall on select headlining dates and in support of Stone Temple Pilots.
