2022 will see Primal Scream play their first headline shows since
December 2019. And how better to mark their return than playing their
classic ‘Screamadelica’ album in full? Completed by a selection of
greatest hits spanning similarly essential albums such as ‘XTRMNTR’ and
‘Give Out But Don’t Give Up’, the tour will see them play some of the
biggest shows of their career: a large capacity big top in Glasgow and
then major outdoor gigs in Manchester and London.
‘Screamadelica Live’ tour adds to the band’s celebrations to
commemorate the 30th anniversary of their influential landmark album.
This Friday will see the release of two new versions of the album. A
10-disc 12” Singles Box compiles nine replicas of the singles from the
original album campaign alongside Andrew Weatherall’s recently unveiled
‘Shine Like Stars’ remix, all pressed on 180-gram heavyweight vinyl. The
second release is the album’s first ever picture disc format.
previously unreleased ‘Demodelica’ collection then follows on October
15th. It provides a new insight into the album’s creation, with a
variety of early demos and work-in-progress mixes. It will be released
on digital, double-vinyl, CD and C90 cassette formats. The package will
be completed with new liner notes by Jon Savage. The author and
journalist is renowned for documenting British music culture with books
such as ‘England’s Dreaming: Sex Pistols and Punk Rock’ and ‘The
Hacienda Must Be Built’.
