    Damn.. well that gives hope for more fall dates at least! Setlist.fm has them not playing Detroit since '92, so I'll just still keep dreaming.

    I got tickets for the Philadelphia show!!! Iíve never seen MBV...Iím so excited I thought I was going to pass out when I got the tix. Has anyone here been to The Fillmore? I hear it is a good venue. I wonder if theyíre going to be as loud as 2008 or same as 2013? I have heard a lot of people say that in 2013 they werenít nearly as loud as they were in the past.

    By the way...for those of you that donít know...J Mascisí side project Heavy Blanket will be opening the NYC and Philly shows!

    I hear you! Iím so excited to see them in July. Never seen them live, but am anticipating it will be surreal. I saw Slowdive last year and they put on a dense, amazing show, and I imagine this will be just as awesome. I really want to see mbv play ďlose my breathĒ but I donít think theyíve played it live for quite some time looking at setlist.fm. Hope you enjoy the show!

    Right! Their 2013 setlists were pretty on point looking at them. I’d imagine they’ll be playing stuff from the ep that’s coming out this summer. I’m excited to see what direction they take from that 2013 album

    Does anyone believe we will get a release before their first show of the new tour? It’s getting awfully close...especially if they plan on playing new songs during the gigs.

    This new release from MBV is one of my most anticipated release this year, maybe the most aside from new NIN and Tool (unlikely).

    Kevin stated in an interview recently that there are 2 EPís that are like 30-40mins long each. I believe he said he wanted to release one this summer and one in the distant future. I was hoping he would drop the EP before the tour starts but...itís only s few more days until the first gig.

    BTW...anyone ever have any luck meeting the band after a gig? Not sure if they are known for being approachable after shows or not.

    Ive met Debbie Goodge from when she was in Primal Scream briefly in 2012 she is really cool.
    My friend who is about 15 years older than me saw them in London in 1991, Jason Kember from Spacemen 3 was supporting them, The gig was extreme noise and strobe lights for 70 minutes, completely overwhelming, people were being sick and having to leave the venue, they got in serious fights with venue managers, ive heard some bootlegs from this period, Ive got one from 1988 its unbearably loud you can hear the audience in pain groaning at a few points, don't know if I could cope at one of those shows.
    but it works...just very intense, scary, but MBV shows were about intensity.

    I saw them in 2008 at their first reunion show in 16 years , it was like a warm up gig only about 200 people, it was so fucking loud I could not hear properly for about 3 days afterwards, I remember getting the train home from the gig and struggling to hear what the announcer was saying, nothing like it..I saw them again a few weeks later when the 'real' shows started again at bigger venues, the volume was lower I feel maybe they felt they could not deal with that level of volume again. so toned it down, it was still much louder than other concerts, but that first gig oh my god, and even that one was not as loud as the show between 1988-92.

    i honestly HATED how loud they were. i know they're very much known for their live volume, and as a devout shoegaze kid dating back to the 90s, i understand that noise is part of the bliss, but if you're playing so fucking loud that i can't hear the melodies; the sublime, heartsoaring melodies that make your music so great, then i can't hang. glad to hear they've toned that down.

    Thank you!!!
    It is awesome, i love it. Can't wait to hear a better quality version of it.
    Kevin really has such a unique sound to his guitar playing. No other Shoegaze bands sound exactly like him. Sure they have things in common, but MBV are in a league of their own.

    Sad to see they seemed to remove Sometimes and Thorn from their setlist...but if they keep What You Want in the set...thar Is pretty awesome.

    Anyone that went to any of the recent shows know if they were selling the MBV record at the merch booth?

    Some classic Kevin in a brand new interview: https://www.rollingstone.com/music/m...y-life-699266/

    A very insightful interview that is great to read, but just ends up with the usual Kevin excuses about why the new stuff isn't done yet and how it will definitely come out. Shame on me for thinking he had it together this time.

    Good facts:

    - The new song they've been playing isn't recorded yet, was put together in rehearsals.
    - New EP 'not too complete, more half made'.
    - Still skirting between two EP's or a mini album.
    - It'll take Kevin 'Three albums of material' to get everything realized that he has ready.

    I'm pretty disappointed he's still far behind with everything, can only hope for a new record this year now if we are lucky.

    Great interview! That song that Kevin described near the end sounds so cool, I'm still excited to hear new material from MBV even if it might not be released this year!

    The video from Fender with Kevin for the Jazzmaster's 60th anniversary was a nice surprise. It's so fucking awesome to get a peek inside his studio and all of the guitars he's accumulated over the years.

    They played a new song in seattle last night. Someone posted a short clip of it...from what i could hear it sounds AMAZING and very different from anything they’ve released before. It’s a beautiful melody in waltz time. Here’s the only clip I could find of it.

    The Fender piece was cool, but man I'm really bummed that there isn't a solid release plan yet for the new music. I was hoping they'd have the EP out in time for this US tour. Seeing them next week, and I can't wait though, really looking forward to hearing these new songs. Hoping they have some new swag at the merch table too.
