The Jesus And Mary Chain have announced that they will release new album ‘Glasgow Eyes’ on 8 Mar. “Don’t expect ‘the Mary Chain goes jazz’”, says Jim Reid. “People should expect a Jesus And Mary Chain record, and that’s certainly what ‘Glasgow Eyes’ is. Our creative approach is remarkably the same as it was in 1984, just hit the studio and see what happens. We went in with a bunch of songs and let it take its course”. Out now is new single ‘Jamcod’. UK tour dates are also set for March.
Louis Culture has released new double A-side single ‘Grammar/No Love’. He will also be touring the UK in April, including a show at London’s Village Underground on 18 Apr.
