Jessica Paré sang with the band at two North American shows last week
The Jesus And Mary Chain were joined onstage last week by Mad Men actress Jessica Paré, who plays Megan Draper in the 1960s-set ad exec drama.
Paré provided backing vocals on ‘Just Like Honey’ and ‘Sometimes Always’ at shows in Buffalo (August 2) and Toronto (August 3). Watch fan-shot footage of Paré’s appearance above.
Back in 2007, actress Scarlett Johansson also appeared with the band at the Californian Coachella festival to sing ‘Just Like Honey’ after the song featured in her 2003 film Lost In Translation.
The Jesus And Mary Chain reformed earlier this year, after playing their last shows together four years ago and releasing their last studio album, ‘Munki’, in 1998.
The band’s current line-up consists of original songwriting duo Jim and William Reid, as well as guitarist John Moore and bassist Phil King. The band restart their US tour on September 5 at New Orleans House Of Blues. They will go on to play shows in New York City, Boston, Cleveland and more US cities, before two gigs in Tel Aviv in October.
In September last year, frontman Jim Reid uploaded a previously unreleased track titled ‘Black And Blues’ online. The band also re-issued their entire back catalogue in 2011.
