Recorded in early & late 2009 between Iceland & Berlin, the Brian Jonestown Massacre move forward with their new full length album, “Who Killed Sergeant Pepper?”.
Working with musicans of the likes of Will Carruthers (ex Spacemen 3 & Spiritualized), Unnur Andrea Einarsdottir (who recorded vocals on the last BJM album) & Felix from the Russian band “Amazing Electronic Talking Cave” and various musicians from France, Germany, & Iceland, this is BJM’s most multi-cultured and inspired release to date.
Thirteen tracks ranging from ambient bhangra beats, to rock, to shoegaze, to the gypsy influences of Eastern Europe and then back again to the swirling psychedelia that has won the band a devoted legion of followers around the globe, Who Killed Sergeant Pepper is a high water mark in a career full of brilliant releases.
Australian fans will not only be the first territory to receive the album, but will also receive the bonus EP ‘One’ with their copy of the album.
Who Killed Sergeant Pepper is out February 6th, 2010 on a recordings LTD/Inertia.
To celebrate the release of Who Killed Sergeant Pepper, the Brian Jonestown Massacre have announced they will be heading to Australia in 2010. With the addition of Matt Hollywood, this is as close to the original line up as we are ever going to see on stage.
