Echo & the Bunnymen confirm album, tour details

I'm really looking forward to this album...

Meteorites, Echo & the Bunnymen's 12th studio album and first since 2009, will be released April 28 in the UK and June 3 in the U.S via 429 Records. 

Produced by Youth (Killing Joke, The Verve), the album contains 10 new songs by co-founders Ian McCulloch and Will Sergeant along with Gordy Goudie (guitar) and Stephen Brannan (bass). In conjunction with the album’s release, the band will embark on a tour of Europe and the UK beginning in May (see confirmed dates below).

Says McCulloch: “’Meteorites’, the new Bunnymen album…at long last we’ve made the worthy successor to ‘Crocodiles,’ ‘Heaven Up Here,’ ‘Porcupine’ and ‘Ocean Rain.’ ‘Meteorites’ is what Echo and the Bunnymen mean and are meant to be—up there in heaven--untouchable, celestial, beautiful and real. It has changed my life”
