My Bloody Valentine site crashes after album release

Earlier today My Bloody Valentine announced via their Facebook page: “We are preparing to go live with the new album/website this evening. We will make an announcement as soon as its up.”

An hour ago MBV followed that up with:

The album is now live on

And the fans flowed to the site in droves, causing to crash. No word yet on when the MBV hordes will actually be able to stream and download the new album.

Figures. We’ve waited over 20 years—what’s another day?
