Accelerator marks the end of the seminal record label...

Primal Scream are to release Accelerator, from their acclaimed ‘XTRMNTR’ album, on September 11, and it will be the final release on the CREATION label.

The single, mixed by My Bloody Valentine mainman Kevin Shields, is backed with ‘When The Kingdom Come’, which features Paul Weller and Kevin Shields on guitar, and Third Bardo cover ‘I’m Five Years Ahead Of My Time’.

The band took time out from festival appearances in the Far East and Europe this week to celebrate the wedding of bassist Mani and his girlfriend Emelda in Gibralter.

And, as reported on earlier today (August 10), Bobby Gillespie was at Creation founder Alan McGee‘s 40th birthday party last night.

The band are back in the UK for appearances at Carling Weekend Festivals at Reading on August 25 and Leeds on 28th, with Glasgow Green sandwiched in between on the 26th.

As revealed on last week, their festival dates will be preceded by a low-key warm-up at London Kentish Town Forum on August 24.
