The Jesus and Mary Chain will return to North American this summer — at least for one performance, following this week’s announcement of the Glasgow noise-pop legends as an early headliner of the Sled Island Music & Arts Festival in Calgary, Canada, on June 19-22 alongside Swans, Divine Fits, Explosions in the Sky and more.
It’s only the second confirmed performance of 2013 for the reunited Mary Chain, who also are slated to appear at Primavera Sound 2013 in Barcelona, Spain, on May 24.
The band toured North America last year and played several festivals, including South By Southwest.
The Jesus and Mary Chain tour dates
May 24: Primavera Sound 2013, Barcelona, Spain
