The return of Erasure

Erasure (Andy Bell and Vince Clarke) have announced details of their 17th album, World Be Gone, out on Mute on May 19.

It is the follow up to 2014’s The Violet Flame, and follows the band’s recent 30th anniversary celebrations.

About the songs, Vince Clarke says, “Obviously the current political climate lends itself to lots of ideas.” Andy Bell continues, “I think there’s an under swell of opinion, and people are slowly waking up. I’m hoping that people will take the album in a positive way, that they’ll use it as optimistic rabble-rousing music.”

Watch the trailer for the new album HERE.

The BRIT and Ivor Novello winning pop duo have released a staggering number of albums, including 5 UK Number 1’s and 17 top 10 singles (35 singles charted in the UK Top 40) and their recent best of, Always, saw Erasure entering the Top 10 album charts once again.

Erasure is special guest on Robbie Williams’ 2017 stadium tour taking place in the summer. Ahead of those dates, Erasure perform three headline shows: May 27 in Glasgow, May 28 in Manchester and May 29 at London’s historic Roundhouse. Full details below.

World Be Gone, written, performed and produced by Erasure and mixed by Matty Green, will be available on CD, ltd edition orange vinyl, regular vinyl & cassette and is available to pre-order now. As a special thank you to fans, everyone who pre-orders the album by 7 April (through the dedicated World Be Gone pre-order site) will get their name included in the album artwork. 500 copies of the album will be signed and all pre-orders give access to the exclusive fan ticket pre-sale for the band’s forthcoming headline shows.
