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 09. Thorn 10. Nothing Much To Lose 11. To Here Knows When 12. Slow 13. Soon 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.

    Pretty sure Shields wasn't being very serious about the release. I'll be happy if he was though.
    I am sooooo excited. This year/last year have been so great for new music. With a new Black Flag album in addition to this, I really can't complain!
    Well, I'm rather incredulous, but I would buy it on opening day if it's true.
