The Jesus and Mary Chain - "ramcod"

Photo by Mel Butler

I associate The Jesus and Mary Chain with the 90's so strongly that I always forget Jim and William Reid started the band in the 1980's. Next year marks their fortieth anniversary of their debut single, so they've announced a new album, an autobiography, and a UK and European tour. The first single off the album, "ramcod," is out now, and despite being around for forty years, we're happy to report that The Jesus and Mary Chain haven't slowed down at all. The song mixes the classic shoegaze sound of the band with the 90's electronic music they dabble in, and it sounds like vintage Jesus and Mary Chain, just a classic song that sounds modern at the same time. It's rare to get excited about a band's upcoming album four decades into a career, but most bands aren't The Jesus and Mary Chain.

You can watch the video for "ramcod" below. Glasgow Eyes is due out March 8 on Fuzz Club and can be pre-ordered here. For more on The Jesus and Mary Chain, check out the band's website. Upcoming tour dates are below the video.
