The Brian Jonestown Massacre hint at 2019 tour with The Dandy Warhols

The Brian Jonestown Massacre haven’t even kicked off their 2018 Australian tour yet, but they’ve already hinted at plans to return, with The Dandy Warhols coming along for the ride.

Back in 2004, music fans were given a rather immersive look at the love-hate relationship between San Francisco psych-rock legends The Brian Jonestown Massacre and Portland indie-rockers The Dandy Warhols with the documentary Dig!. Needless to say, the film highlighted a lot of animosity between the two groups, and led to many believing that the two bands were in fact enemies who were constantly at odds with each other.

Of course, while both bands have distanced themselves from the way they were portrayed in the film, it has still some as somewhat of a surprise to many that the two bands are reportedly planning to tour Australia together next year.

As The Music reports, The Brian Jonestown Massacre’s frontman, Anton Newcombe, recently revealed some of the group’s tour plans for 2019, including one hell of a double-header planned for Victoria.

“I think next year we’re going to do a crazy show outside of Melbourne, with The Dandy Warhols, in some amphitheatre vineyard thing…” Newcombe explained.

Of course, the mere mention of an “amphitheatre vineyard thing” instantly brings to mind the A Day On The Green festival, but of course, only time will tell what actually eventuates. Likewise, the fact that Newcombe only mentioned Melbourne might raise an eyebrow or two, but considering that nothing’s been officially confirmed yet, we should just consider ourselves lucky enough to get that much.

As it stands, The Brian Jonestown Massacre are getting set to touch down in Australia in just a few weeks for their first Aussie tour since 2015. See below for more ticket details, and maybe keep and eye on the movements of both groups because, who knows, we might indeed be getting one hell of a rock double-header coming our way next year.
