In 2007 Shields announced that the band had reunited and that a new album they had started recording in 1996 was "3/4th finished." In August 2007, internet rumors claimed that the band were negotiating a performance at the 2008 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival or were planning a world tour. Vinita Joshi, Kevin Shields' manager, said "there are no confirmed shows at all."

On November 15th 2007, My Bloody Valentine announced three upcoming live gigs in the UK for 2008.[28] According to the festival's website, they are also confirmed as part of the 2008 edition of Festival Internacional de Benicàssim (Spain, July 17th- 20th.), Roskilde Festival (Denmark, July 3rd- 6th), Fuji Rock Festival 08 (Japan, July 25th-27th), Øyafestivalen (Oslo, Norway, August 5th- 8th) and The Electric Picnic Festival (Ireland, August 29 - 31st). They are also confirmed headliners for Bestival 2008, which takes place on the Isle of Wight in September. On April 23rd, Pitchfork Media announced MBV's inclusion in the All Tomorrow's Parties festival scheduled for September 19-21, 2008. A small North American tour was announced on May 6th.

On June 13th and 14th, the band played in public for the first time in thirteen years, offering a pair of 'Live Rehearsal' presentations at the ICA in London and officially starting their series of comeback performances. They played a 15 song set consisting of material from the albums 'Isn't Anything', and 'Loveless', and also from the 'You Made Me Realise', and 'Tremolo' EP's. None of the new and, as yet, unreleased material that MBV have recently made was played. The full set list was:

'Only Shallow', 'You Never Should', 'Honey Power', 'I Only Said', 'Cigarette In Your Bed', 'Thorn', 'Nothing Much To Lose', 'To Here Knows When', 'When You Sleep', 'Slow', 'Blown A Wish', 'Soon', 'Feed Me With Your Kiss', 'Sueisfine', 'You Made Me Realise'

Hey, good stuff, man.

I'm not a huge fan myself, but I know what it's like to win something like that (won Pumpkins tickets last summer).

Congrats.
