They will head to North America for a two-week tour on January 14th. Complete tour dates are as follows:
The Vaselines released V For Vaselines on October 7th in North America via Rosary Music. The album features musical contributions from Michael McGaughrin (1990s), Frank Macdonald (Teenage Fanclub), Stevie Jackson (Belle & Sebastian), Graeme Smillie (Olympic Swimmers), Paul Foley (Mandrake Shepherd) and Scott Paterson (Sons & Daughters). V for Vaselines was self-produced and recorded in their native Glasgow at Mogwai’s Castle Of Doom Studio and engineered by Tony Doogan (Belle & Sebastian, Mogwai). The album is available on vinyl, CD, download and limited edition cassette.
Having formed in Glasgow in 1987, V For Vaselines is their third album. Their debut, Dum Dum, was released on the legendary Scottish label 53rd & 3rd in June 1989. The band broke up the same week as the album was released, but subsequent patronage by Kurt Cobain (Nirvana covered 3 Vaselines tracks), saw the bands early singles compiled by Sub Pop in 1992.
Both continued to write and record, and reunited in 2008 to play Sub Pop’s 20th anniversary festival as well as some further shows around the world. They would eventually release their second album, Sex With An X, on Sub Pop in 2010.
