Touring this year in support of their long-delayed comeback record mbv, shoegaze legends My Bloody Valentine will play at least five concerts in the western U.S. this August in advance of the band’s headlining appearance at the FYF Fest in Los Angeles. It’s not yet clear whether more U.S. dates are planned this summer.
As Pitchfork points out, ticketing websites confirm the August concerts in Austin and Grand Prairie, Texas, as well as Denver, Seattle and San Francisco ahead of the previously announced FYF Fest appearance. The U.S. concerts will be the band’s first since a 2009 tour here.
UPDATE: My Bloody Valentine has now officially announced the five new U.S. shows.
Kevin Shields and Co. currently are on tour in Europe, and are slated to play Budapest tonight.
