My Bloody Valentine announce UK Tour Dates, album
ATP Concerts are very proud to present my bloody valentine who will return to play in Summer 2008 across the UK. The band will take to three cities London, Manchester and Glasgow.
The following three dates have been announced:
Friday 20th June – London – The Roundhouse
Saturday 28th June – Manchester – Apollo
Wednesday 2nd July – Glasgow – Barrowland
Tickets go on-sale this Friday, November 16th. Tickets for all shows will be available at www.seetickets.com and venue box offices.
They’re also coming out with a new record. Kevin Shields talked about it on the VBS.TV special.
“We were making a record in the ’90s around the time the band broke up in 1995…and I continued with Belinda [Butcher, the band’s guitarist/vocalist]. It’s going to be this ’96/’97 record half-finished, and then a compilation of stuff we did before than in 1993-94, and a little bit of new stuff.”
Shields, who’s worked intermittently with Primal Scream since 1996, has barely released any of his own music since the Valentine’s split. His most significant post-MBV output to date was four tracks on the soundtrack to Sofia Coppola’s film, Lost In Translation, in 2003.
“I pretty much know what the one that’s going to come out this year is going to sound like because it’s already three-quarters done,” he told Soft Focus. “It sounds like what we sounded like–different, but not radically different.” [Yahoo]
