Brian Jonestown Massacre has just announced the first of two new albums for 2018; ‘Something Else’ will be released on 1st June on a Recordings. The album, which is available on 180grm white vinyl, was recorded and produced at Anton Newcombe’s Cobra Studio in Berlin. The second album of 2018 is self-titled and will be out in September, more details to come on that at a later date…

‘Something Else’ is the Brian Jonestown Massacre’s 17th full-length release, the style of which is less experimental than more recent records and harks back to the traditional sound of the band. Recorded between 2017 and 2018, this 9-track album will please old and new fans alike.

Following a relatively quiet 2017 – the band did a tour of the US East & West Coasts and Mexico City to support last year’s album ‘Don’t Get Lost’ – the band have now announced tours of the USA, Canada and Australasia, and will shortly be announcing a tour throughout the UK and Europe.

Anton Newcombe has been a very busy man these past 4 years, having released 3 critically acclaimed Brian Jonestown Massacre albums and an EP, 1 soundtrack album and 1 album with Tess Parks, the follow up to which will be released in between the forthcoming BJ M albums this year. All releases were fully recorded and produced at Anton’s studio.
