As a band that's refused to be locked into one genre, they found a sense of freedom in their abilities to float from bluesy rock'n'roll, to psychedelia and back. 'Wrong Creatures' takes a journey throughout rock's history, taking unlikely twists and turns, but also having one foot firmly in the present. Their biggest focus remains in developing their own musicianship, never resting on their laurels, preparing to enhance the live experience they can offer fans. 'Wrong Creatures' is an exercise in getting back to the core of BRMC's alchemy. From the murder balladry of 'Haunt' to the garage punk of 'Little Thing Gone Wild', it runs the gamut of classic rock, allowing BRMC to flex every muscle in their armour.
“I find myself having a discussion with death, which sounds dark. For me, it's dark humour.” says Hayes. Talking about mortality allows Hayes to explore life's great mistakes and regrets. Channelling them through rolling riffs and dirge-laden rhythms, however, extolls the demons within. The most beautiful part of it is that even this far down the line, they can still surprise themselves. As dark and heavy as things get for Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, there's still a ray of light.
