Hell froze over: My Bloody Valentine says it’s new album is ready ready ready, that on December 21st they finished mastering and that they are going to tour the album around the world, and for the doubters: rough mockups of the artwork are ready.
It’s been 22 years since Loveless and it seems like a lifetime. This is as huge as it gets as far as record releases and with Kevin Shields being the notorious perfectionist that he is, perfectly willing to pull the plug permanently on anything that doesn’t meet his question of how to live up to Loveless, I would say it’s a pretty good bet that it’s going to be mind-blowing. This feels really good.
*According to some sources this may be released via Kevin himself on his website AND there may be an extra EP of unused songs released also.
