After a 21 year wait, My Bloody Valentine have finally released their third album, mvb, via their new website.
After stating that the follow-up to 1991’s Loveless would be out by the end of last year, front man Kevin Shields stated at a Jan. 27 concert that he believed the long expected album would be out “in two or three days," according to NME.
On Saturday evening, the band posted to their Facebook account, informing fans that “we are preparing to go live with the new album/website this evening. We will make an announcement as soon as it’s up.”
At midnight GMT, the band launched the new website, which quickly crashed due to the high volume of people attempting to access it.
"I think with this record, people who like us will immediately connect with something,” Shileds told NME. “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 percent necessary.”
The nine-track album is available as a download, a CD plus download, or as a vinyl with CD and download.
