My Bloody Valentine have announced that they have finished mastering their long-awaited new album.

At 11:38pm on December 23, the seminal shoegaze band posted a message to their fans on Facebook informing them that the album had finally been mastered, although no release date was given.

The message read:

On 21-12-12 we finished mastering the new album!

Last month (November), frontman ambitiously Kevin Shields told NME that the album - the band's follow-up to 1991's 'Loveless' - will be released before the end of the year (2012).

My Bloody Valentine also recently announced that they will tour their new record around the world next year (2013). The band will kick off the UK leg of the tour at Glasgow's Barrowlands on March 9 before moving on to play Manchester's Apollo (10) and two nights at London's Hammersmith Apollo (12, 13).

The UK shows come after a series of six gigs in Japan and four dates in Australia, all taking place in February. They are also confirmed to headline the 60,000 capacity Tokyo Rocks festival in May.

My Bloody Valentine are confirmed to play the following UK dates:

Glasgow Barrowlands (March 9)
Manchester Apollo (10)
London Hammersmith Apollo (12, 13)
