The decade-old punk and indie rock fest broke the news today on KCRW's morning show Morning Becomes Eclectic, when fest founder Sean Carlson played a bit of My Bloody Valentine's Only Shallow, the opening track from their 1991 landmark "Loveless."

In February, the Kevin Shields-led band finally released their long-awaited Loveless follow-up, MBV. So far, no more American dates have been announced.
