The Jesus and Mary Chain Announce US Tour Dates

As we all know from listening to Jack Black in the movie, High Fidelity, The Jesus and Mary Chain picked up where your precious Echo & The Bunnymen left off, and you're sitting around complaining about no more Echo albums. Jesus!

Whether or not this is true is irrelevant, because TJ&MC have just announced several upcoming US tour dates – their first in five years. The Reid brothers, as well as guitarist John Moore and bassist Phil King, will perform, all joined by a “yet to be announced” drummer. Mysterious!

Following their recent reissue-ing of seemingly everything, we’ve been on the lookout for any local show updates. In the meantime, go buy some plane tickets for next month’s dates! Quickly, now! Do it!

Check out the schedule and watch some fun (and obligatory) videos after the jump.

March 11:  Denton, TX @35 Denton Festival
March 12: New Orleans, LA @House Of Blues
March 13:  Houston, TX @House Of Blues
March 14-17 (specific date TBA): Austin, TX @SXSW
