The Jesus And Mary Chain will perform their classic debut album Psychocandy in its entirety at three UK shows set to take place this November.

The gigs, scheduled ahead of the album’s 30th anniversary, will see the band take to the stage at the Troxy in London on 19 November, Manchester Academy on 20 November and Glasgow Barrowlands on 21 November.

The appearances mark the band’s first UK shows for six years: their last show was at the Roundhouse in London in 2008.

Psychocandy was meant to be a kick in the teeth to all of those who stood in our way at the time, which was practically the whole music industry,” frontman Jim Reid said of the landmark LP.

“In 1985 there were a great many people who predicted no more than a six month life span for The Mary Chain.

“To celebrate the approaching 30th anniversary of the album, we would like to perform it in its entirety. We will also perform key songs from that period that did not feature on the album.”

The tickets will go on sale at 9am on Friday 16 May.
