Kevin Shields, guitarist and vocalist of My Bloody Valentine, recently talked about his interest in doing some new work with the band. He said:
“A lot of people say the reason My Bloody Valentine didn’t make another record is because we couldn’t. That’s mostly true, but not because we couldn’t make another record, but because I never could be bothered to make another record unless I was really excited by it. And just by fate or whatever, that never happened. I’m quite optimistic about the future, even though experience has taught me that I’m probably just delusional. I do feel that I will make another great record.
We are 100 percent going to make another My Bloody Valentine record unless we die or something. I’d feel really bad if I didn’t make another record. Like, shit, people only got the first two chapters, but the last bit is the best bit. It’s just that it’s taken me such an oddly long time for that to happen. How long will that take to transpire into an actual physical record? I don’t know.”
Though they never officially broke up, the band hasn’t been active since 1995, with their last release being Loveless in 1991.
