The Vaselines return with new album, ‘V For Vaselines’

The Glasgow duo are back with their third album in over twenty years.

Glasgow’s The Vaselines have announced details of a new album, ‘V For Vaselines’; their first since 2010’s ‘Sex with an X’. The ten-track release was self-produced, recorded at Mogwai’s Castle Of Doom studio, and it’s due on 29th September through Rosary Music.

The band’s third album, it features contributions from Michael McGaughrin (1990s), Frank Macdonald (Teenage Fanclub), Stevie Jackson (Belle & Sebastian), Graeme Smillie (Olympic Swimmers), Paul Foley (Mandrake Shepherd) and Scott Patterson (Sons & Daughters).

“We just work together well,” says founding member Eugene Kelly, of his relationship with bandmate Frances McKee. “I don’t know what it is, but when we get together, it creates a sound we couldn’t do separately.”

This time, that sound was spawned when Eugene stumbled upon a Ramones covers band in Glasgow. “After that, I just wanted to write some really short punk rock songs, just get into people’s ear really straight away, and then get out of there really quickly.”

The tracklisting is as follows:

1. ‘High Tide Low Tide’
2. ‘The Lonely L.P.’
3. ‘Inky Lies’
4. ‘Crazy Lady’
5. ‘Single Spies’
6. ‘One Lost Year’
7. ‘Earth Is Speeding’
8. ‘False Heaven’
9. ‘Number One Crush’
10. ‘Last Half Hour’
