The Jesus And Mary Chain have announced the release of ‘Live At Barrowlands’, a live album recorded at Glasgow’s Barrowland Ballroom in November.
The gig, which took place on November 23, 2014, kick-started a short run of UK shows to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their debut album ‘Psychocandy’, with the album played in full during each show.

In February, the iconic band told NME that plans for a new album were underway.
The band’s last release was 1998’s ‘Munki’, the group then split in 1999 after the relationship between frontman Jim Reid and his brother, guitarist William Reid crumbled.
“We’ve got the material, we’ve talked about doing an album for so long now,” Jim Reid told NME. “We got back together in 2007 and it was the plan then. We thought ‘We’ve got a bunch of songs, this would make a pretty good Mary Chain album’ – and then there was the usual slaps and scratches between my brother and myself. ‘I wanna do it here’ and ‘I don’t’ and then it was all ‘Fuck you’ and swinging at each other. The usual shit basically.”
However, Jim went on to say that as a result of the band’s ‘Psychocandy’ album tours a new album seems more likely than ever. “We are kind of coming round to being in agreement, which is a bit weird for us, he commented. “There will be an album – we will get it together. I’m more convinced now than I ever have been that there will be a new Mary Chain album.”
