Birmingham rockers Broken Witt Rebels are set to release their eagerly anticipated new album OK Hotel via Snakefarm Records next Friday, 13 March, and have shared their new track, ‘Rich Get Richer’. You can check it out below.
Oozing with an unmistakeable blues swagger that’s driven skyward by a slick bassline and a sprinkling of dreamy gospel tones, ‘Rich Get Richer’ shows the band’s ability to change the pace without losing any of their bite. It was born from two previous song ideas fused together to create a bold, vengeful anthem that sounds like it’s taken straight from a scene out of Peaky Blinders – a characteristic that the Birmingham natives are more than happy to brandish.
‘Rich Get Richer’ follows the band’s previous singles ‘Running With The Wolves’ and ‘Money’, all of which provide a taste of what’s to come from their most confident body of work to date. Throughout the new album’s 13 tracks, Broken Witt Rebels pay homage to their home- town, honouring their working class roots and demonstrating their ability to craft songs that are honest and equipped for the 21st century.
The upcoming OK Hotel has been praised by the likes of Planet Rock, Classic Rock, Maverick Magazine, Powerplay and more, and will be supported by a full headline tour of the UK and Germany throughout the spring, kicking off with two special in-store performances in Sheffield and Birmingham next week.
Broken Witt Rebels will also appear at Hamburg Harley Days in June – Europe’s premier biker inner city meet.
