The Brian Jonestown Massacre have announced special sideshows from their Vivid LIVE performance in Sydney that includes a stop over at Metropolis Fremantle on Saturday, June 2. The show is set to celebrate their brand new album, Something Else.
Led 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 17 acclaimed studio albums across 28 years, including the brand new long player Something Else, which returns to the classic BJM reduction of swirling retro-hued guitars, washed over droning, hypnotic primal rhythms and Newcombe’s trademark edifying and biting social commentary.
“The Brian Jonestown Massacre are a wildly original and thrilling live band who have built a career out of prioritising art over commercial compromise, “ Vivid Sydney’s Stephen Ferris said. “This maverick approach continues to sustain their relevance to a generation of music lovers making it a no brainer when it came to inviting them to be part of Vivid Sydney.”
The Brain Jonestown Massacre play Metropolis Fremantle on Saturday, June 2. Tickets on sale 9am AEST this Friday, March 23.
