The Jesus and Mary Chain’s fall U.S. tour just got a bit longer, as the band has been announced as the headliner — along with Neutral Milk Hotel’s Jeff Mangum — of the Boomslang festival in Lexington, Ky., this September (via Consequence of Sound). The fest runs Sept. 20-23, and it’s safe to say the Mary Chain will play on the closing night, since they’ve got shows booked in Ohio and Michigan the preceding dates. The brothers Reid play a short run of dates later this week before embarking on the full tour in September.
