Anton Newcombe, the lead singer of the band The Brian Jonestown Massacre may have got more than he bargained for after he shared the news that he will be getting back in the studio in the near future to record a new album. Newcombe joked (?) on Twitter with Mark Lanegan about providing some vocals for the new album and the singer quickly expressed his interest. Not long after, several other incredible musicians chimed in as well with their interest in helping out on the long-running and ultra-prolific psych-rock band’s latest studio album.
Newcombe and company have been very busy as usual, releasing Third World Pyramid in 2016, Musique de Film Imaginé and the mini-LP Mini Album Thingy Wingy in 2015.
