Brian Jonestown Massacre have announced a new album Third World Pyramid, which will be released on 28th October.
The lead single is Sun Ship, and it will be released on honey coloured vinyl on 16th September.
Named in tribute to the legendary Rolling Stones guitarist and his influence in introducing Eastern culture and music into the world of Western rock & roll, Brian Jonestown Massacre formed in San Francisco, California in 1990.
Originally heavily influenced by the Stones’ psychedelic phase, the band’s work in the 2000s has expanded into aesthetic dimensions approximating our very own shoegazing genre of the nineties, and incorporating widespread influences from all over the world, especially Middle Eastern and Brazilian music.
Sun Ship brings the traditional BJM sound mixed with eastern influences and bringing it up to date with the benefit of all the additional weirdness that’s been discovered in the past 40 years.
Have a listen.
