The Jesus And Mary Chain: 40 years
The Jesus and Mary Chain, one of the most influential bands of their generation, will celebrate their 40th anniversary in 2024 with the release of a new album ‘Glasgow Eyes’, whose first single ‘jamcod’ is already out. The Reid brothers continue their momentum with a tour that brings them to Ancienne Belgique on Tuesday, April 23, for an already unmissable concert!
Formed in 1984, The Jesus and Mary Chain released ‘Psychocandy’ a year later, a debut album that changed musical history with its hypnotic melodies laced with haunting and disturbing dark lyrics. With their screaming Velvet Underground guitars, trashy attitude and bad boy looks, they top it off with their over-the-top live performances. ‘Glasgow Eyes’ will be released March 8 and is the follow-up to 2017’s ‘Damage and Joy,’ the band’s first studio album since they reunited in 2007 after a nine-year absence. Jim and William Reid recorded their new album at Castle Doom, Mogwai’s studio in Glasgow, using the same creative process but also with fewer struggles than at the beginning of their career. 2024 promises to be an exceptional year for fans of The Jesus and Mary Chain: the brothers will also unveil an autobiography, a documentary and a world tour beginning in March.source: AB
