The Jesus And Mary Chain are set to release their long-awaited new album Damage and Joy on March 24th on ADA/ Warner Music. The album is their first since Munki was released backed in the summer of 1998.

Fronted by the Reid brothers Jim and William, The Jesus And Mary Chain first reformed to play the Coachella festival back in 2007. Despite regular touring – most notably a 2015 world tour which revisited their landmark album Psychocandy – it took some time before they could agree on a plan to record a much-mooted seventh album.

The album commences with ‘Amputation’, in which waves of distorted guitar and Jim’s insouciant vocal delivery collide to create a hypnotic track which addresses his feelings of “being edited out of the whole music business… I felt like a rock ‘n’ roll amputation.”
