Principal Entertainment presents
BRIAN JONESTOWN MASSACRE & THE KVB

The Brisbane Hotel, TAS
Principal Entertainment are proud to present avant-garde psychedelic rockers The Brian Jonestown Massacre and introducing special guests, The KVB – a tour not to be missed. TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY 30TH AUGUST, 9AM.
After their incredibly successful tour of 2012, The Brian Jonestown Massacre are returning to Australia to re-engage and amaze their Australian fans once again. The kings of mind-expanding, hypnotic psych rock, BJM have been creating their own musical path since coming together in 1990. Helmed by band-leader and visionary Anton Newcombe, The Brian Jonestown Massacre has seen multiple line up changes, innumerable tours and some 12 albums and 5 EPs, all the time keeping in synch with Newcombe's singular musical vision.
With an extensive back catalogue of incredible music to reference and reinterpret, no two BJM live shows are ever the same, and yet everyone is brilliant. This December BJM will be focusing that brilliance on a run of shows across Australia, as well as what promises to be an unforgettable Meredith Music Festival appearance.
Special guests for the entire tour are UK band The KVB. Hand picked by BJM's Anton Newcombe to be on his 'a recordings' record label, The KVB are Nicholas Wood and Kat Day - a duo who have been quietly releasing slabs of droning guitars, minimal synth melodies and reverb drenched vocals since 2010.
Their sound picks up from where the Horrors began, and where Joy Division and Echo & The Bunnymen left off in the 80's, and their debut album, 2012's Always Then piqued the interest of the UK music media with Thefourohfive.com claiming "The KVB have just delivered your album of the year".
Since then The KVB have released a second album, Immaterial Visions in February this year and are already putting the finishing touches on album number 3, due out later this year.
Not surprising then that a band this prolific has caught the ear of Anton Newcombe and has been personally chosen to accompany him and The Brian Jonestown Massacre to Australia this December.
