After returning with their new single “jamcod” and announcement of the March 8th release of their new album Glasgow Eyes via Fuzz Club. The Jesus and Mary Chain have dropped new single “Chemical Animal.” The track “looks back to the ghosts of their past for inspiration”.

Jim Reid says, “Our work on our autobiography definitely bled into our work on the album. “jamcod,” the first single from the album, was about that night in 1998 in the House of Blues when the band broke up. “Chemical Animal” is different but related. I was thinking back to those dark days of chemical dependency. When you fall so deep into that hole that everything you do is by instinct. The drugs are the driving force. The thing that gets you from a to b is whether you can score. It was a horrible way to live and I’m thankful I don’t live that way any more. One effect is that it made me
aware of how our brains, who we are, how we feel, and what we do, depend on our neural chemistry, a chemistry beyond our control. It’s a biological curse we can’t escape.”

This year will see The Jesus and Mary Chain embark upon an extensive tour of the UK, Ireland and Europe which commences in March. Strong demand for tickets has seen additional shows added in both London and Manchester after the initial dates rapidly sold-out. Their festival plans for 2024 are also taking shape, with Festival Tomavistas (Spain), Paredes De Coura (Portugal) and Cruel World (USA) already confirmed.
