OK folks, I'm seeing this popping up on reputable sites all over the place, so I feel
honor-bound to report it. There's every chance that
seminal 90s shoegazing
noisemongers, My Bloody Valentine, will pull a Jesus & Mary Chain and reunite to
headline Coachella. That's Coachella 2008.
To report that MBV is reforming for Coachella 2008 is much like
announcing I've got a
royal flush before the river has revealed the
fifth card that may make my hand. Music is
sometimes a gambling game,
and I'm not prepared to go all in on this one. But I can tell
with buzz this loud, the odds are in our favor...
"According to sources in the United States and the United Kingdom who
are familiar with
the negotiations, the band is close to signing a deal
that will see a reunited My Bloody
Valentine headline Coachella,
scheduled for April 25–27, before embarking on a world
tour sometime later in 2008." -- The Daily Swarm
"Several people have had a chance to run to Kevin Shields at various
(Meltdown, Moscow gig). Apparently Kevin told them that a
new album and tour are in
store for 2008. Supposedly the album is
almost done... A curious thing has happened.
There now appears to be an official My Bloody Valentine
myspace site. It even has alink
MyBloodyValentine.co.uk. Could this be a signal
that the new album and tour rumours
are actually true?" -- MyBloodyValentine.net
