My Bloody Valentine album will be released in 'two or three days'
My Bloody Valentine's new album could be released in two or three days, according to the band's frontman Kevin Shields.

Speaking on stage during the band's show at Brixton's Electric, Shields said the long-awaited follow-up to 1991's 'Loveless' "might be out in two or three days".

The band kicked off their set with a brand new song, labelled 'Rough Song', on the setlist. It was the only new material played at the 'rehearsal' gig, a warm-up for their forthcoming tour dates.

My Bloody Valentine played:

'Rough Song'
'I Only Said'
'When You Sleep'
'You Never Should'
'Honey Power'
'Cigarette In Your Bed'
'Come In Alone'
'Only Shallow'
'Thorn'
'Nothing Much To Lose'
'To Here Knows When'
'Slow'
'Soon'
'Feed Me With Your Kiss'
'You Made Me Realise'


The show was added earlier this month as a warm-up for the band's scheduled tour of Japan and Australia, before returning to the UK for a tour in March. They've also added a Birmingham date to the tour.

In December, the seminal shoegaze band posted a message to their fans on Facebook informing them that a new album had finally been mastered, although no release date was given.

The message read:

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

The band, who were due to start their UK tour at Glasgow's Barrowlands on March 9 before playing Manchester Apollo on March 10 and two shows at London's Hammersmith Apollo on March 12 and 13, will now begin on March 8 at Birmingham's O2 Academy.

Speaking to NME at the beginning of November, frontman Kevin Shields claimed that the band's new album would be released on his website before the end of the year, although it has yet to see the light of day.

My Bloody Valentine will play:

Birmingham O2 Academy (March 8)
Glasgow Barrowlands (March 9)
Manchester Apollo (10)
London Hammersmith Apollo (12, 13)
