Black Rebel Motorcycle Club have gone a little surreal with the video for their recent single “Little Thing Gone Wild,” which will be making an appearance on their upcoming album, Wrong Creatures.

Directed by  Brian Lauzon, the video looks a bit like the opening to a James Bond film opener with eye-catching silhouettes, unsettling juxtapositions of lizards, spiders and snakes, swirling patterns and grainy high-contrast montages of the band popping in and out of view. (WATCH IT BELOW.) As for the song itself, it’s rock n’ roll to the max: a potent blend of chunky bass, pounding drums, screeching guitars and sludgy vocals singing about lust and desire.

Produced by Nick Launay (Nick Cave, Arcade Fire) and recorded at Sunset Sound, Wrong Creatures is slated for Jan. 12 release.

In a recent statement, bassist-vocalist Robert Levon Been shed some light on the somewhat unhinged creative space BRMC was in as the band put together the new album over the last few years.

“It’s a crazy-making machine, it can chew you up good,” he said. “We literally toured till the wheels came off and Leah’s brain literally started leaking out of her head. I know I’ve battled on and off with mental depression, and Pete’s head never came with any proper instructions.”

It looks like the band will be entering this frenetic headspace again soon, as a new North American tour is underway for the new year. It kicks off with a Jan. 15 show in San Diego and wraps up in L.A. (after winding all around the U.S. and Canada) on Feb. 4. (SEE DATES BELOW.)
