Erasure album+tour tix on sale Friday

Synthpop pioneer Erasure is back with Tomorrow's World, the band’s first album in more than four years. The new album is due out in the fall and produced by noted artist/remixer Frankmusik (Lady Gaga, Pet Shop Boys). 
After Erasure’s recent triumphant return to the stage for Short Circuit Presents: Mute at the Roundhouse, London - a one-off performance which saw Vince Clarke perform with special guests Alison Moyet and Feargal Sharkey, plus a performance at 2011’s Ultra Music Festival, Erasure is bringing the new album to the U.S. for their first tour in five years. 

Tickets go on sale June 24 via Ticketmaster and Ticketfly outlets. Anyone preordering the album (likely through the band's website) will get early access to tracks from Tomorrow's World before the tour starts.
Tomorrow’s World was written in New York, London, and at Vince Clarke’s cabin studio in Maine following a short break, which found Andy Bell recording and releasing his second solo album Non Stop, and Vince Clarke reuniting with former Yazoo partner Alison Moyet for a recent tour.

From Lady Gaga to La Roux, the futurist, electronic sound Erasure championed is more relevant today than ever, and once again re-charging the global music scene.
