It’s always special when your favorite band does something special for just a few of its most ardent fans. Shoegaze pioneers My Bloody Valentine did just that for fans and even made it a surprise.

My Bloody Valentine

Late last year, My Bloody Valentine bandleader Kevin Shields announced “all analogue” vinyl reissues of their two classic albums Isn’t Anything (1988) and Loveless (1991). As it turns out, the band secretly included a special “alternative cut” of Isn’t Anything with the initial shipments of the albums. In a post on Twitter, the band wrote, “Just wanted to let you know that we have now run out of the free extra isn’t anything alternative cut and pressing that we are giving away. Thanks to everybody who bought the initial run!”

In other news, Shields will be bringing the band back together for their first show in four years at the Sonicmania festival in Japan this August. In an interview with Pitchfork Shields also promised that he will “one hundred percent” be releasing a new My Bloody Valentine in 2018.
