Check out the first single to be released from the long awaited new album from legendary noise merchants Jesus & Mary Chain.

Although dates are still to be confirmed in this part of the world, Damage and Joy is slated for a March 24 release in the US, with the first single Amputation dropping overnight.

The new record – their first of original material in almost 20 years – was produced by Killing Joke’s Youth, who apparently also served as a bit of a peacekeeper for the regularly feuding Jesus & Mary Chain frontmen Jim and William Reid. Damage and Joy also features their touring drummer Brian Young and former Lush bassist Phil King.
