Tour Information


‘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 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:

Friday 6th November, The Foundry, Christchurch (note venue change)
Saturday 7th November, Sammys, Dunedin (with The Chills)
Sunday 8th November, Bodega Wellington
Tuesday 10th November, The Powerstation, Auckland

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, to be sold from venues only. 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.

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