Apparently not contented at all by the awesomeness and accolades that have been winging their way since the announcement of their first new album in 18 years Damage and Joy late last year (which still comes out March 24, btw) and the parade of singles that subsequently followed, those dour, handsome, greedy bastards Jim and William Reid of The Jesus and Mary Chain are now reaching for the sweetest plumb of all: a big, shiny, full-on North American tour, during which they’ll have plenty of opportunities to be photographed looking all “sexy” and “dead” behind skinny, black microphone stands and whatnot. (I mean, I guess I can’t blame them; this whole music thing is cool and all, but we all know that LOOKING AND ACTING COOL IN PUBLIC is where the real action is.)

The dates across the pond will begin May 9 in St. Paul, MN, following an European victory parade earlier in the spring. All the dates are listed down below (right after the videos for the two singles released in support of Damage and Joy thus far, which I’ve taken the liberty of re-rounding-up for you). Tickets for all the shows are on-sale now, and you can get yours at the band’s website…which, given that you’re on the internet right now, I’m sure you can easily just look-up in another tab… oh man, FINE, who am I kidding? HERE IT IS. Fuck. Just don’t ever leave our website EVER AGAIN.
