[BRANDO-SIZED PSYCH-ROCK] A few months after the release of 2010’s Beat the Devil’s Tattoo, guitarist Peter Hayes and bassist Robert Levon Been lost, for all intents and purposes, the third founding member of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club: Robert’s dad, Michael, who died of a heart attack backstage at one of their shows. The death of the elder Been—not only BRMC’s longtime soundman but frontman of ’80s alt-rockers the Call—looms heavy on the band’s newest album, Specter at the Feast, and not just due to first single “Let the Day Begin,” a cover of Been Sr.’s biggest hit. That BRMC’s sixth studio effort is more elegiac than most says something: The band, which took its name from Marlon Brando’s biker gang in The Wild One, has burned through dirge-like walls of fuzz and badlands blues since its 2001 debut. Still, even in its quieter moments, BRMC is as cinematic as its namesake.
