After 28 years in the game, The Brian Jonestown Massacre is showing no signs of slowing down — or quietening down, for that matter. When the band hits the Metro for two shows in June, it'll be armed with its 17th studio album, Something Else.

As any recording artist knows, churning out an album every 18 months is no mean feat. Yet frontman and songwriter Anton Newcombe is no less scathing in his social commentary and no less artistically uncompromising than he was when he started out back in the 80s. Something Else continues the Massacre's signature mesmerising rhythms, hypnotic drones and raw guitar sounds. And, from all accounts, the live shows are as relentlessly energetic as ever.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre's gigs at Metro Theatre are exclusive appearances for Vivid Live as part of Vivid 2018. The first show sold out quicksmart, but there's still a few tickets up for the Friday, June 8 show.
