From the moment the Reid brothers (Jim and William) first pressed the record button on their Portastudio in the early 1980’s, the intense, sometimes brutal, often darkly romantic music they made has always felt like past, present and future smashed together, alchemising into something startling. 

Consistently defying musical boundaries, blending intense melodies with raw emotion to create a mesmerising sonic experience, JAMC anthems such as Just Like Honey, April Skies and Happy When It Rains are timeless statements of artistic excellence. Shaping the post-punk landscape with a legacy that continues to inspire awe and reverence.

From their origins on the outskirts of Glasgow, The Jesus and Mary Chain have gone on to influence many of music’s greatest minds, and are consistently referenced as a chief source of inspiration for the likes of My Bloody Valentine and Nirvana. 1985’s Psychocandy is widely considered to be one of the most influential post punk records ever released. 

With new album, Glasgow Eyes in hand, the duo continue to seamlessly fuse electronica and rock with as much innovation as they’ve always had. Embracing their punk roots, while maintaining their anarchic spirit.

As outsiders who shaped the very fabric of British music history, The Jesus and Mary Chain stand apart yet are one of the most influential acts of the modern era. 

Joining The Jesus and Mary Chain are special opening acts Merryn Jeann, bringing her spellbinding art-pop to all Australian dates, and Elliot & Vincent, a dynamic duo with driving rhythms and distorted strains performing in Auckland.
