    2008 is looking more and more like the year the '90s struck back, what with the sudden return of My Bloody Valentine (at least overseas), and now, Portishead. The almighty trip-hop trio will release their first studio album in more than a decade this spring and have lined up overseas dates to support it thus far, including stops in Portugal, the UK, and Spain.

    According to Urb.com, a "high-level source" has also confirmed the group's headlining involvement in this year's Coachella—something that'll become clearer this week as the festival announces its official lineup.

    Trip-hop you don't stop:

    3/26 Porto, Portugal - Coliseum
    3/27 Lisbon, Portugal - Coliseum
    3/30 Milan, Italy - Alcatraz
    3/31 Florence, Italy - Sashall
    4/9 Manchester, England - Apollo
    4/10 London, England - Hammersmith Apollo
    4/11 Edinburgh, Scotland - Corn Exchange
    4/13 Wolverhampton, England - Civic
    5/5 Paris, France - Zenith
    5/29-31 Barcelona, Spain - Parc del Fòrum (Primavera Sound)
