Description

After playing their last gig in 1998 and breaking up in 1999, The Jesus and Mary Chain reunited this spring for a handful of high-profile club and festival dates in the U.S. and Europe, which began with a triumphant main stage performance in front of an estimated 10,000 fans at Coachella. In their only U.S. interview to date, brothers Jim and William Reid sat down with Rolling Stone magazine the day after that performance and hinted at a possible return to the studio, which is now confirmed. It will be the first time in over nine years that The Jesus and Mary Chain will begin work on a new album.

In addition to Jim and William Reid, The Jesus and Mary Chain lineup includes Phil King on bass, Mark Crozer on guitar and Loz Colbert on drums.

The chart success of The Jesus and Mary Chain was virtually nonexistent, but their artistic impact was immeasurable. This British group made the world safe for white noise, orchestrating a sound dense in squalling feedback that served as an inspiration to countless bands today.
