The Jesus and Mary Chain continue North American run
The Jesus and Mary Chain have extended their first tour since 2008 with a second round of shows slated for late summer.
The Glasgow-based shoegaze band, currently comprised of brothers Jim and William Reid with bassist Phil King, will return to the North American tour trail for an Aug. 2 performance in Buffalo, NY, followed by two Canadian stops: Aug. 3 in Toronto and Aug. 4 in Montreal. After a month-long break, the outfit will pick back up Sept. 5 in New Orleans, LA, and play clubs, theaters and festivals in 14 cities throughout the eastern U.S.
More dates will be announced in the coming weeks, according to the group's website.
The Scottish rockers haven't released a studio album since their sixth effort, 1998's "Munki." Late last year, the band reissued that set, along with 1994's "Stoned & Dethroned," both of which includes a previously unreleased B-sides, interviews as well as a DVD full of promo videos and television appearances.
