As previously reported, Brian Jonestown Massacre will release its 13th studio album, Aufheben, on May 1st via ‘a’ Records. The 11-track album was recorded in Berlin at band leader Anton Newcombe’s studio and the East German radio station, Studio East. According to a press release, the German title has “seemingly contradictory meanings, including ‘to lift up’, ‘to abolish’, or to ‘sublate’.” Keep that in mind when you check out the cheekily titled “I Want to Hold Your Other Hand” below.
Given the band’s history of revolving lineups, it should be noted that Aufheben features Newcombe, alongside original member Matt Hollywood, Spirtualized’s Will Carruthers, Dimmer’s Constatine Karlis, Rockcandys’ Thibault Pesenti, and additional vocals by Eliza Karmasalo.
