Legendary noise merchants My Bloody Valentine took to social media today to tease… well, something… that will be happening on March 31. Could it be a new record from Kevin Shields and Co., a relatively quick follow-up to 2013’s 22-years-in-the-making third album mbv?
My Bloody Valentine today announced a short U.S. tour around its previously confirmed appearance at FYF Fest in Los Angeles this July, a six-date run of shows that will include stops in Seattle, Oakland, Calif., St. Paul, Minn., Chicago, Philadelphia and New York City. See full dates right here.
The time has come once again, it appears, to dust off our old MBV Watch feature, as rumors now are swirling about reclusive guitar-noise genius Kevin Shields being at work on a new My Bloody Valentine album — the follow-up to 2013’s mbv — for release sometime next year. Here’s what we know.
My Bloody Valentine will return to the U.S. for the first time since 2009 when the band co-headlines, along with Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the 2013 installment of FYF Fest in Los Angeles this August, organizers announced this week. The festival is set for Aug. 24-25 in L.A. State Historic Park.
So it appears “maybe two or three days” meant closer to a week, but Kevin Shields has kept good to his word as My Bloody Valentine tonight released the band’s 22-years-in-the-making follow-up to Loveless, a 9-track album called mbv that, upon news of its release, crashed the MBV site preventing anyone from hearing it for hours.
