Primal Scream have announced My Bloody Valentine's Debbie Googe as their new touring bass player.

Googe, who was a founding member of My Bloody Valentine and also a member of Showpony and The Bikini Mutants, will join the band's live line-up for the foreseeable future.

She replaces Gary 'Mani' Mounfield in the band's line-up. Mounfield left to rejoin The Stone Roses for their lucrative reunion tour late last year.

Speaking to NME about this and Primal Scream's decision to support the Stone Roses at Heaton Park on June 29, frontman Bobby Gillespie was keen to stress that Mani remains "best friends" with the band. He said of this: "It's a big thing for Mani, because he really doesn't want it to look like he's pissed off from the Scream to join the Roses, because he's not at all. It's a really cool thing."

Googe's first shows with Primal Scream will be three dates in Scotland this summer. The gigs kick off at Inverness Ironworks on June 14, before moving on to Aberdeen Music Hall on June 15. The band wrap things up with a headline show at Dunoon's Queens Hall on June 16.

The band will then play a series of festivals appearances, including Isle Of Wight Festival, Hop Farm Festival and the newly created Festival Number 6.

Primal Scream are currently working on the follow-up to their 2008 album 'Beautiful Future'.

Primal Scream will play:

Inverness Ironworks (June 14)
Aberdeen Music Hall (15)
Dunoon Queens Hall (16)
