Jesus and Mary Chain Announce U.S. Tour for 30th Anniversary of ‘Psychocandy’
To mark the 30th anniversary of 'Psychocandy,' the Jesus and Mary Chain's debut album, the band is crossing the Atlantic to play a handful of shows in the U.S. and Canada this May.
This legendary album was set upon the world for the first time in November 1985. Since then, their brand of the ol' "wall of sound" spawned its own sub-genre, which we now lovingly refer to as shoegaze.
While the announcement didn't include any mention of a new album in the future, the press release was encouraging nonetheless:
"This [tour] will be the continuation of a year of activity not only celebrating the 30th anniversary of 'Psychocandy' but also looking firmly ahead to the future."
Tickets go on sale this Friday, Jan. 30.
