The Jesus And Mary Chain

The Jesus and Mary Chain are set to release their long-awaited new album DAMAGE AND JOY on March 24th
Fronted by the Reid brothers Jim and William, The Jesus and Mary Chain first reformed to play the Coachella festival back in 2007. Despite regular touring – most notably a 2015 world tour which revisited their landmark album PSYCHOCANDY – it took some time before they could agree on a plan to record a much-mooted seventh album.
The album commences with ‘Amputation’, in which waves of distorted guitar and Jim’s insouciant vocal delivery collide to create a hypnotic track which addresses his feelings of “being edited out of the whole music business… I felt like a rock ‘n’ roll amputation.”
Other highlights include a refined and re-energised new version of ‘All Things Must Pass’ which previously featured in the TV show ‘Heroes’ and then on ‘Upside Down: The Best of The Jesus and Mary Chain’; the raw garage-rock of ‘Facing Up To The Facts’ which offers the revealing lyric: “I hate my brother and he hates me / That’s the way it’s supposed to be”’; and the jagged power-pop that simmers in ‘The Two of Us’.
The album also features performances from the band’s touring drummer Brian Young as well as former Lush bassist Phil King.
