Hear Revelation in full ahead of its release next week

American psych rockers The Brian Jonestown Massacre are set to release their new album, Revelation, on May 19 through frontman Anton Newcombe's A Recordings label. Revelation features original member Ricky Maymi and is the first album recorded and produced entirely at Anton Newcombe's recording studio in Berlin.

Speaking to Louder Than War in February of this year, Newcombe spoke fondly, but somewhat apprehensively of his new creation. "It's taken me months to feel comfortable enough to let them go," he admitted. "I liked each track on its own, but I could not see how they all flowed together... but a few of my mates came by for a listen and put it into perspective... They said it was non-stop good songs and I should lighten up."

Check the album out above and catch them on their UK tour, starting on June 28 at Brighton's Concorde 2. The band have also announced their only UK festival appearance on the John Peel Stage at Glastonbury on June 29 - have a look at the dates in full here.
