The Jesus And Mary Chain are all set to drop their new album, Glasgow Eyes, on 8th March. Released under Fuzz Club, this album comes hot on the heels of their acclaimed 2017 release, Damage and Joy.
Their ‘noise rock’ legacy continues, especially after the recent reissue of Munki, which threw the spotlight back on their multifarious discography.
Glasgow Eyes, available for pre-order now, stays true to the band’s foundational sound. The band elaborates:
“But don’t expect ‘the Mary Chain goes jazz.’ People should expect a Jesus and Mary Chain record, and that’s certainly what Glasgow Eyes is. Our creative approach is remarkably the same as it was in 1984, just hit the studio and see what happens. We went in with a bunch of songs and let it take its course. There are no rules, you just do whatever it takes. And there’s a telepathy there – we are those weird not-quite twins that finish each other’s sentences.”
The album’s lead track, ‘Jamcod’, dives into their edgier electronic side, showcasing William Reid’s synth prowess. Merging dark electronica with their signature guitar riffs, the track and the entire album were crafted at Glasgow’s renowned Castle of Doom studio.
