My Bloody Valentine

My Bloody Valentine is a shoegaze band out of Dublin, Ireland that originally formed in 1983. They are often credited not just as the pioneers of the shoegaze movement in the late 1980s and early 1990s, but their 1991 LP Loveless often tops the list of best shoegaze albums of all time.

The band largely failed to gain traction until they signed to Creation Records in 1988. On Creation, My Bloody Valentine released several EPs and two LPs, Isn’t Anything (1988) and Loveless (1991).

They signed to Island Records in 1992.

Despite recording several albums worth of material, they did not release another record, and ultimately dissolved as a band in the mid to late 90s. However, they reunited in 2007 and after delays released m b v in 2013.

The band signed to Domino Records in 2021, and their catalog was added to several streaming platforms. Domino reissued the band’s catalog. Word on the street is that new material is in the works…

While depicted in title case here, My Bloody Valentine is often stylized in all lowercase.
