New Zealand audiences should need no introduction to The Brian Jonestown Massacre or to their enigmatic musical director Anton Newcombe. The kings of mind-expanding, hypnotic psych rock, BJM have been creating their own musical path since coming together in 1990. With an extensive back catalogue of incredible music to reference and reinterpret, no two BJM live shows are ever the same. This November will see Newcombe and his band play exclusive shows in Australasia as part of the 25 YEARS – THE SILVER JUBILEE TOUR, performing current songs from the last few years along with older songs that have never been played live before:

‘As notorious as he is prolific, Anton Newcombe has been creating shoegaze-inflected psychedelic jams for the best part of 25 years’ – Record Collector

New Album

To coincide with the tour they will release a Limited Edition Numbered Vinyl (double gate fold) 10” EP called ‘the bjm mini album’ of all new songs. A collector’s item that all dedicated BJM fans won’t want to miss out on!

Since the band’s last visit to New Zealand in 2010 they have released studio albums ‘Aufhebens' and Revelation’ - to critical acclaim.‘Revelation’ was the first full length album fully recorded and produced by Anton Newcombe in his recording studio in Berlin and released on his label A recordings.

April 2015 saw the release of ‘Musique de film imaginé’ – music for an imaginary French film, a soundtrack paying homage to the great European directors of the late 50’s and 60’s.This was followed by the June 2015 release “I Declare Nothing” a collaboration between Anton Newcombe and Tess Parks

‘Anton Newcombe is one of those rare artists who manages to stay prolific without compromising his output.’ – NME

Don’t miss the Brian Jonestown Massacre Silver Jubilee shows when they hit New Zealand this November.

The Brian Jonestown catalogue is available CD & LP from Southbound Distribution
