The Brian Jonestown Massacre stream new album 'Aufheben' in full – listen
Brian Jonestown Massacre are streaming their new album 'Aufheben' online ahead of its official release next week (May 7) - scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to listen to the album in full. The stream will be available for 24 hours.

'Aufheben', which is a German word for 'abolish' or 'preserve', was recorded in Berlin at frontman Anton Newcombe’s studio and the East German Radio Station 'Studio East'. Speaking about the record's title, Newcombe told NME: "I love the concept of having to destroy something to preserve it - rip it up and start again. It makes sense with clay and sculpting, you don't throw it away, you start again. I feel the same thing is true about society on many levels."

The album, which is the band's 13th studio release, is a follow-up to 2010's 'Who Killed Sgt. Pepper?'. It features the return of original member Matt Hollywood, as well as contributions from Will Carruthers (Spacemen 3, Spritualized), Constatine Karlis (Dimmer) and Thibault Pesenti (Rockcandys).

When asked about working with Hollywood again, Newcombe stated: "He's a very creative person, even if he's playing a piano part or something. It's strange how we both understand each others' ideas, and also contribute unique things, i.e. since we taught each other to play music, we both have the same approach to writing and playing and at the same time and end up with totally different ideas to contribute. The best of both realms."

Discussing how he would describe the sound of 'Aufheben', Newcombe added:

I feel like I am on the crossroads of creating an epic soundtrack for film, so in a word, ['Aufheben sounds] cinematic.


Brian Jonestown Massacre will be playing a number of UK shows in July, including an appearance at T In The Park on July 6. The band then go on to play London O2 Shepherds Bush Empire (7), Manchester Ritz Ballroom (8) and Birmingham O2 Academy 2 (9).
