By Craig Hubert | After last month’s announcement that shoegaze legends My Bloody Valentine would finally be releasing the long-in-the-works follow-up to 1991’s now classic “Loveless,” the band announced on their Facebook page that they finished mastering the new album last week. We are this much closer to a new album, we suppose, but don’t jump too far ahead – there is still now confirmed news of a release date. Front man Kevin Shields told NME that the record will be released via the band’s website and that the few people who have heard it “think it’s stranger than Loveless.” Bassist Debbie Googe, speaking to Drowned in Sound, confirmed that the album does in fact exist, and that, basically, Shields recorded the entire thing himself. We won’t get our hopes up till we actually hear the thing, but the fact that the band just booked a string of European tour dates, beginning in February, is hope that the long wait for a new album by My Bloody Valentine is over.
