new my bloody valentine album 'mbv'! no, really!


Holy effin crap. Earlier in the week when My Bloody Valentine debuted a new tune, “Rough Song”, at a gig in London, mercurial bandleader Kevin Shields said the much rumored, eternally delayed follow-up to 1991’s Loveless would be released “in 2 to 3 days.” With as often as he’s cried wolf over the years, die-hard fans weren’t too optimistic.

Turns out he wasn’t bluffing. Yesterday the band posted this definitive message on its facebook page:

“We are preparing to go live with the new album/website this evening. We will make an announcement as soon as its up.”

After waiting 22 years, what’s a few more hours? Once the site went live it immediately crashed igniting a firestorm of twitter jokes and bitching. It’s working now, and you can order 180 gram vinyl, CD or digital formats of the new 9-track album mbv. Physical copies will be shipped in a few weeks, but the digital download is available immediately.
