Announcing their first album in 18 years, The Jesus and Mary Chain have today shared the first single, ‘Amputation’, from the

Revealing the track on Steve Lamacq’s BBC6 Music show, the full-length record - produced with Killing Joke’s Martin Glover, who also plays bass on the work - drops on March 24 2017 through ADA / Warner Music. It will be the Scottish outfit's follow-up to 1998's ‘Munki’.
