My Bloody Valentine

Upon announcing MBV’s triumphant reunion five years ago, Kevin Shields said he was 75% done with the followup to his little record called Loveless. In a new round of press (via NME) to promote next week’s LP and EP reissues, Shields is saying this is also the year the world will hear brand new My Bloody Valentine. And not just that LP he began work on in ’96, but also a totally new EP of material recorded this year. That is pretty good news if true and not just a press-stoking statement! In fairness, any man that hides from the world for over a decade probably isn’t a press manipulator, unless of course that makes him the greatest press manipulator. We’ll see!

    My only hesitation is that the source for this news bite is NME who are the greatest of all greatest press manipulators (Note how there’s no exact verbatum quote from Shields himself and that it’s only stated in a “Yeah, dude definitely told us so take our word for it…” type of way.) But Pitchfork had a similar story a few weeks back, so I’ll get my hopes up marginally, and if it doesn’t happen, I can wait another decade for it to.

  5. I want this to be true so bad

  6. It’s better to burn out than to fade away?

    Part of me is ridiculously excited by this, but another part does not want it to happen, and keep the mysticism of Loveless alive.

  7. If My Bloody Valentine, Boards of Canada, and the Avalanches all released albums this year, the world could end and I would be okay with it.

  8. Any news regarding MBV or Kevin Shields for that matter is a much needed, welcome breath of fresh air in this stale musical climate!
