Shoegaze icons Slowdive will release their first new studio set in more than 20 years on May 5.
The self-titled record will feature the singles Star Roving and the just released Sugar For The Pill; check out the video for the latter below.
Formed in Reading in 1989, Slowdive are best known for their 1993 LP Souvlaki, now regarded as a key shoegaze/dream pop album. The band split in 1995, but reformed in 2014 for an extensive European and US tour.
Vocalist/guitarist Neil Halstead says of Slowdive: “When you’re in a band and you do three records, there’s a continuous flow and a development. For us, that flow re-started with us playing live again and that has continued into the record.”
