My Bloody Valentine Biography

My Bloody Valentine are an alternative rock band formed in Dublin, Ireland in 1983. Since 1987, the band's lineup has consisted of founding members Kevin Shields (vocals, guitar) and Colm O Ciosoig (drums), with Bilinda Butcher (vocals, guitar) and Debbie Googe (bass). Known for their use of distortion, pitch bending, and digital reverse reverb, My Bloody Valentine's musical progression resulted in the band creating and pioneering an alternative rock subgenre known as shoegazing.

Following several membership changes and unsuccessful releases, My Bloody Valentine signed to Creation Records in 1988. The band released a number of successful EPs, including You Made Me Realise (1988), Glider (1990) and Tremolo (1991), and two studio albums, Isn't Anything (1988) and Loveless (1991) on the label. Loveless, which has been described as the band's magnum opus and one of the best albums of the 1990s, was a major critical success. However, the band were dropped by Creation Records after its release due to the album's extensive production costs. In 1992, My Bloody Valentine signed to Island Records and recorded several albums worth of material, although remained largely inactive. Following the departure of Googe and O Ciosoig in 1995, My Bloody Valentine later disbanded in 1997.

In 2007, Shields announced My Bloody Valentine had reunited and the band subsequently toured across Europe, Asia and North America. Following reissues of both Isn't Anything and Loveless, and the release of the compilation album EP's 1988-1991 (2012), My Bloody Valentine's third studio album, m b v, was released in 2013 to universal acclaim.
