Guitar-mangling guitar-mangler Kevin Shields - yeah, he makes the mangle noises, outta his guitar - has told Magnet that he sees life in his old band My Bloody Valentine yet, despite the fact that that band have released nowt since 1991's Loveless.
"I do feel that I will make another great record," Shields told the US magazine. He added that there would be a new MBV album, one hundred per cent, "unless we die or something".
And: "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."
Obviously no release date's anywhere near being set, but when it is grown men will die. Their deaths will almost certainly be unrelated to this news, though.
Shields concluded: "I'm quite optimistic about the future, even though experience has taught me that I'm probably just delusional." Mixed signals, much?!
