The Jesus And Mary Chain have announced a UK and European tour for 2024 to celebrate their 40th anniversary as a band.

The Scottish alt-rockers will kick off the trek on March 22 in Manchester, before heading to Dublin, Belfast, Edinburgh and London, where they'll play the Roundhouse on March 30. They'll follow the UK and Ireland run with European dates throughout April. Tickets go on general sale at 10am local time on December 1.

Alongside the news, Jim and William Reid have announced a new album, 'Glasgow Eyes', due out on March 8 via Fuzz Club, following recording sessions at Mogwai’s Castle Of Doom studio in Glasgow. It's led by the first single, Jamcod, which couples programmed beats and synth layers for a dark and distorted electro-pop affair.

If that wasn't enough, the duo have also shared the first details of a documentary and autobiography written with help of Ben Thompson, though an exact publication date and title is still to be confirmed. In an interview with NME, they said:

"We just told him our story and he’s editing it all together. It’s just us jabbering on about us as usual. There are a few amusing anecdotes, I guess. If you’re interested in the Mary Chain I’m sure it’ll make good reading."

Discussing the documentary, they revealed: "That’s very early stages. I’m not really sure how that’s gonna go. We’ve not really filmed anything too much. But again that’s us just working with Ben Unwin who made some of our videos back in the ‘90s. He’s pulling that thing together."

The Jesus And Mary Chain's most recent studio album is 2017's 'Damage and Joy'. Since then, they've put out a deluxe edition of that record, as well as two live LPs, 2022's 'Live At Barrowland' and 2023's 'Sunset 666'. The latter was recorded during the band's two shows at the Hollywood Palladium on their 2018 tour of North America supporting Nine Inch Nails.

1. Venal Joy
2. American Born
