My Bloody Valentine are releasing a “100% necessary” new LP by the end of the year, or so says frontman Kevin Shields (we’ll believe it when we see it). The band also plan to lavish upon us all a further EP of all-new, all-original tracks in the spring.

Choosing to share the news with NME, Shields says: “I think with this record, people who like us will immediately connect with something. Based on the very, very few people who’ve heard [the new] stuff – some engineers, the band, and that’s about it – some people think it’s stranger than ‘Loveless’ [MBV’s 1991 LP, and the band’s last studio record]. I don’t. I feel like it really frees us up, and in the bigger picture it’s 100% necessary”.

MBV have also just announced a headlining set at May 2013’s Tokyo Rocks festival, which is nice if you can afford to go to Tokyo/live in Tokyo.
