My Bloody Valentine Announce New Album

It has been over two decades since My Bloody Valentine released their seminal album, Loveless. Since then, fans have been dying to get their hands on any sort of follow up. While not the most prolific band, from 1983 (the year they formed) to 1991, they managed to release a handful of EPs and two lauded albums (the other being Isn’t Anything). Earlier this year Kevin Shields, the mastermind behind the band and their unique sound, remastered and re-released both studio albums and a compilation of their EPs. And recently, after years of teasing and speculation, it looks as though My Bloody Valentine have finally decided to wrap things up on a new album.

Shields revealed to the NME that the untitled new album will be released by the end of this year via his website with a follow up EP, also comprised of new material, set to be released sometime shortly after. This announcement falls into place with their previously announced Japanese tour accumulating in a headlining set at the Tokyo Rocks festival in May 2013. While it is easy to be apprehensive about this news, it really is looking like one of the most important bands in recording history is finally making a comeback.
