the second pressing of the limited tour editon vinyl of We Are The Champions
Jeff The Brotherhood - We Are THe Champions

Here's an interesting one for ya. Pentagram will hit the road with JEFF The Brotherhood (!) for a string of US dates in August. No word on if those dates will surface in NYC, but we'll keep a look out when the actual dates are announced. In the meantime, the newly Warner-Brothers'ed JEFF have added a show with a band (who can't be revealed but who play Public Assembly on 6/17) and another "Very Special Guest" at 285 Kent Ave on June 25th. Anyone know the bigger guest? We don't, but the date does fall smack dab in the middle of JEFF's tour with Fucked Up who play Terminal 5 with Dinosaur Jr. two days earlier.

Meanwhile, no word on the release of Last Days Here, a new documentary that chronicles Pentagram frontman Bobby Leibling's addiction and his life in and out of the band, has a NYC premiere coming up at BAM. The film played at SXSW 2011 and you can check out a deleted scene from the film below.

Pentagram released Last Rites earlier this year (their first in 17 years!). JEFF is preparing to release their We Are The Champions on June 21st.

All tour dates and some video is below.

Will be nice to see Pentagram again after I missed the last two times they came here.

Who is Jeff the Brotherhood?

Bobby L. is awesome. he handpicked JEFF the brotherhood to open his shows. That's a perfect pairing!

so I'm guessing it's Iceage and Fucked Up on that Kent Ave show.

Hope the Pentagram tour comes here, had to skip out early the last time they came because of work since they didn't go on til late.
