My Bloody Valentine have announced a trio of UK dates for early next year.

The band will kick off their brief UK tour at Glasgow's Barrowlands on March 9, before playing Manchester Apollo on March 10 and London's Hammersmith Apollo on March 12.

The UK dates will follow a series of six gigs in Japan and four dates in Australia, all taking place in February. My Bloody Valentine are also confirmed to headline the 60,000 capacity Tokyo Rocks festival in May.

Speaking to NME at the beginning of November, frontman Kevin Shields revealed that the band's new album - their first since 1991's classic 'Loveless' - will be released on his website before the end of the year.

He said of the new album: "I think with this record, people who like us will immediately connect with something. Based on the very, very few people who've heard stuff – some engineers, the band, and that's about it – some people think it's stranger than 'Loveless'. I don't. I feel like it really frees us up, and in the bigger picture it's 100 per cent necessary."

My Bloody Valentine will play:

Glasgow Barrowlands (March 9)
Manchester Apollo (10)
London Hammersmith Apollo (12)
