This is the title song off Black Rebel Motorcycle Club‘s upcoming album, out March 9th. It’s a loud, stomping, rootsy rocker reminiscent of early White Stripes. The song is inspired by Edgar Allen Poe

The sound of Beat The Devil’s Tattoo comes from everywhere and nowhere- it draws a map and embarks on a sonic road trip through American music; from howling front porch stomps on the Chattanooga and beer-sloshing Texas roadhouse rockouts, to swaggering proto-punk sneering in NYC’s basement bars.

Like the title of the album, a phrase gleaned from Edgar Allen Poe’s 1839 short story, “The Devil In The Belfry,” BRMC stands on the edge of darkness, but never dives in.
