Taking to their Facebook page last night, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club posted the following news about their forthcoming new album:

"Hey guys, I would like to be the first to tell everyone who has been patiently waiting, that the new Black Rebel Motorcycle Club album is officially confirmed to be released in March 2013. This album has taken every last ounce of us to bring to life, and if it wasn't for you guys keeping us going, we don't know if it would've ever seen the light of day. It's going to be a joyful day indeed when we get to see you all again and share these songs with you. Peter, Leah and myself are dying to get out of this studio right now and back into the fight. It's taken us a long while getting back on our feet, but the time has come."

No other details have been confirmed yet (title, specific date, cover art etc) - but they have announced some new EU/UK dates for 2013. Tickets for the shows can be bought from their official site.
