East Kilbride’s finest will unveil new music in March 2017.

The Jesus and Mary Chain are gearing up to release their first new album in 18 year.

Alan McGee, former boss of Creation Records, which put out the band’s last album Munki in 1998, revealed the news in an interview with CBC Music.

“They’ve made another album! It’s a big deal! It’s unbelievable,” he said. “They’ve just made an album and I’ve signed them to Warners!

He added: “It’s coming out end of next March. It’s kinda enormous!”

The indie outfit reunited in 2007 with the intention of recording a new album, but disputes between the Reid brothers delayed the recording.

Last year Jim Reid told Time Out New York that the album marked “a more mature sound for the Mary Chain. But let’s just wait and see.”

In 2014 and 2015 they marked the 30th anniversary of their classic debut Psychocandy with a handful of special shows. A 2015 live album box set recorded at Glasgow’s Barrowlands on that tour was the band’s most recent release. [via NME]
