The Vaselines will be playing at least two more U.S. shows before they head to Seattle to play the Sub Pop 20th Anniversary Festival on July 12th. The new dates are July 9th at Maxwell's (tickets on sale Wednesday) and July 10th at Southpaw (tickets on sale Wednesday).

The band played their first reunion show at a festival in Scotland the other day...

The Vaselines performed a reunion gig last night (May 16) at Tigerfest in Dunfermline.

Supporting Teenage Fanclub singer Norman Blake, the band arrived on stage at 7.45pm at the town's Carnegie Hall to a small but enthusiastic crowd before launching straight into 'Son Of A Gun' - one of three tracks that were once covered by Nirvana.

"This is our first all seated gig," joked singer Eugene Kelly. "It's all a bit grown up, not very punk rock is it?"

The Scottish duo, who were also joined by members of Belle & Sebastian, then blasted through a set full of crowd-pleasing favourites that included 'Molly's Lips' and 'Sex Sux (Amen)'...... [NME]

Scotland Setlist
'Son Of A Gun'
'Monster Pussy'
'The Day I Was A Horse'
'Jesus Doesn't Want Me For A Sunbeam'
'Oliver Twisted'
'Molly's Lips'
'Sex Sux (Amen)'
'Rory Rides Me Raw'
'You Think You're A Man'
'Dying For It'
