US psychedelic rockers The Brian Jonestown Massacre are returning to New Zealand for shows at Auckland's The Powerstation and Wellington's San Fran this June. The long-running project of prolific songwriter Anton Newcombe, the band's swirling legacy in sound speaks for itself, with fifteen studio albums under their belt including highly anticipated new long-player Something Else. Infamously documented in 2004 rockumentary Dig!, this will be the iconoclastic group's first visit to Aotearoa since touring in late 2015, check out the details below...

Press release:

Iconoclastic purveyors of drone-laden psychedelia, The Brian Jonestown Massacre will make their long-awaited return to New Zealand shores in June, 2018 with their brand-new record Something Else.

Fronted by prolific outlier Anton Newcombe, The Brian Jonestown Massacre have ploughed their own fertile furrow in the field of neo-psychedelia, yielding an impressive harvest of fifteen acclaimed studio albums across twenty eight years, including the brand new long player Something Else, which returns to the classic swirling retro-hued guitars, washed over droning and hypnotic rhythms, and of course Newcombe’s trademark edifying and biting social commentary.

Through electrifying live shows, and nourished by a remarkable flow of exciting new recorded music the Brian Jonestown Massacre have grown a loyal fan base in New Zealand. BJM fans know that each time they strap in for another journey with the band, be it on record, or in mortal flesh, they are in for one hell of a fucking trip.
