My Bloody Valentine's new album could be released in two or three days, according to the band's frontman Kevin Shields.
Speaking on stage during the band's show at Brixton's Electric, Shields said the long-awaited follow-up to 1991's "Loveless" "might be out in two or three days".
As NME reports, the band kicked off their set with a brand new song, labelled "Rough Song", on the setlist. It was the only new material played at the "rehearsal" gig, a warm-up for their forthcoming tour dates.
My Bloody Valentine played:
01. Rough Song
02. I Only Said
03. When You Sleep
04. You Never Should
05. Honey Power
06. Cigarette In Your Bed
07. Come In Alone
08. Only Shallow
10. Nothing Much To Lose
11. To Here Knows When
14. Feed Me With Your Kiss
15. You Made Me Realise
The show was added earlier this month as a warm-up for the band's scheduled tour of Japan and Australia, before returning to the UK for a tour in March. They've also added a Birmingham date to the tour.
In December, the seminal shoegaze band posted a message to their fans on Facebook informing them that a new album had finally been mastered, although no release date was given.
The message read:
"On 21-12-12 we finished mastering the new album!"
The band, who were due to start their UK tour at Glasgow's Barrowlands on March 9 before playing Manchester Apollo on March 10 and two shows at London's Hammersmith Apollo on March 12 and 13, will now begin on March 8 at Birmingham's O2 Academy.
