My Bloody Valentine
You’ve seen them at parties, lurking in the corner, waiting to engage in battle disguised as conversation. They’re indie rock know-it-alls, and no matter what band or musician you mention, they’ve got an opinion — strong and almost certainly negative — ready to ram down your throat
The lineup for Optimus Primavera Sound 2013 – set to take place from May 30-June 1 in Porto, Portugal’s Parque da Cidade – has been announced. Hosted by the same folks behind the Primavera Sound festival in Barcelona, the event will feature My Bloody Valentine, Grizzly Bear, Blur and many more.
It's been a while since someone broke the Internet with new music. We think Girl Talk was the last to do it in 2010, when he released 'All Day.' But last night, My Bloody Valentine broke at least a small part of it after news leaked during the day that the band's long-awaited album would be released within hours.
Update: My Bloody Valentine's new website has launched, and the band's long-awaited new album, titled 'm b v,' is officially for sale. The record is available in three formats: vinyl ($30.50), CD ($22) and digital download ($16). The first two options come with instant downloads, and fans have the additional option of choosing the file type: 16bit CD-quality WAV files, 320kbps MP3 or 24bit 96 K WAV.
When it comes to talk of a new album from My Bloody Valentine, frontman Kevin Shields' persistent claims that the disc's arrival is right around the corner fall somewhere between ex-Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o's tales of his dead girlfriend and bicyclist Lance Armstong's claims that he never used performance-enhancing drugs. In other words, nobody believes a word he says.
My Bloody Valentine fans, your seemingly endless wait for a new album may finally be over very, very soon. The legendary shoegaze act performed tonight (Jan. 27) in Brixton, U.K., and, according to an NME report, at one point during the show, frontman Kevin Shields announced that the band's long-awaited follow-up to their watershed 1991 album 'Loveless' "might be out in two or three days."
