The Brian Jonestown Massacre to release new album

Posted by BV on 06/02/15

Anton Newcombe, the primary driving force behind The Brian Jonestown Massacre has announced via his label A Records that a new BJM album is due out on April 27th. It will be titled "Musique De Film Imaginé" and is heavily inspired by, and pays homage to, the great European film directors of the mid-21st Century, such as François Truffaut and Jean-Luc Godard. Newcombe has offered the following insights into the album:

The album that you are about to hear is a soundtrack, my own creation, a tribute to great directors and filmmakers to an era that now seems to be behind us. Leaving the smart person to care to imagine that this art could now be in the shadow of its former glory. The interesting thing about this project is that the film does not exist either. Even so, I imagined and I realised its soundtrack... Now it's your turn, you are the listener to imagine the film.
