Earplugs At The Ready: My Bloody Valentine Announce 2013 UK Tour

My Bloody Valentine - who promised to release a new album this month - have announced a three-day UK tour for March, 2013. Kevin Shields and company will play Glasgow Barrowlands on March 9, Manchester Apollo on March 10, and London's Hammersmith Apollo on March 12. Tickets for all three shows go on sale tomorrow at 9am (December 6, 2012).

Shields told NME last month that a new My Bloody Valentine album would be released before the end of the year, though there is still no sign of it. It is not listed on any retailer's websites and a publicist told The Guardian there was no further news. Technically, there is only two release dates left this year - December 11 and December 18 - therefore it's looking unlikely that a new record will hit shelves. However, fans will be excited at the prospect of seeing the ferociously loud band live once more. Their reputation for noise precedes the group to such an extent that earplugs were handed out to fans attending their critically acclaimed 2008 reunion shows. In his book The Creation Records Story: My Magpie Eyes Are Hungry For The Prize, David Cavanagh's reveals how Shields had the idea of wafting amyl nitrate fumes over the audience to heighten the live experience in the 80s.

The new shows will follow tours in Australia and Japan.
