The band play their first North American gigs since 2008 this March with three confirmed dates and a fourth show at the SXSW festival.
The lineup features founding members William and Jim Reid and late-era bassist Phil King. Also rejoining the band is ex-Black Box Recorder star John Moore. A drummer is yet to be confirmed.
Moore occasionally played drums with the Mary Chain's Psychocandy lineup before permanently replacing Bobby Gillespie when he left to front Primal Scream. He then moved to rhythm guitar in 1986, before leaving the band in 1988.
"So, back in the JAMC after a quarter of a century," Moore confirmed on Twitter. "I am the hardest working man in show business."
The band's full US tour dates are as follows:
- March 11 - Denton, TX, 35 Denton Festival
- March 12 - New Orleans, LA, House of Blues New Orleans
- March 13 - Houston, TX, House of Blues Houston
- TBA - Austin, TX, SXSW
The band last year re-issued their entire back catalogue.
