Here's a press release from the Jesus and Mary Chain:
THE JESUS & MARY CHAIN RETURN FOR FALL DATES
A RETURN TO THE STUDIO FOR REUNITED BAND IS ALSO CONFIRMED
In the five months since The Jesus & Mary Chain have been reunited, the band has played over a dozen dates and today announces a handful of new U.S. dates this fall. The band also confirms that they will be returning to the studio for the first time in over nine years to begin work on a new album.
After playing their last gig in 1998 and breaking up in 1999, the band 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.
In addition to Jim and William Reid, The Jesus & Mary Chain lineup includes Phil King on bass, Mark Crozer on guitar, and Loz Colbert on drums.
