The Brian Jonestown Massacre

The Brian Jonestown Massacre have revealed several United Kingdom-based dates as part of a forthcoming world tour.

The neo-psych ensemble, perhaps most notorious for their doings in candid 2004 documentary ‘Dig!’, have arranged said tour in aid of brand new studio album ‘Aufheben’. Recorded in band figurehead Anton Newcombe’s German studio, the LP features guests including Spiritualized’s Will Carruthers, Dimmer’s Constantine Karlis and original BJM cohort Matt Hollywood.

Listen to album track ‘I Want To Hold Your Other Hand’ here:

Taking place in the wake of a booking at Scotland’s T In The Park on 6 Jul, the band’s British dates are as follows:

7 Jul: London, Shepherds Bush Empire
8 Jul: Manchester, Ritz Ballroom
9 Jul: Birmingham, Academy 2
