Echo & the Bunnymen classics transformed and new songs with strings and things attached.
Echo & the Bunnymen have announced a brand new studio album The Stars, The Oceans & The Moon and a headline UK tour in 2018.
The new studio album will see The Bunnymen, still lead by the indominable Ian McCulloch and Will Sergeant, revisit some of their greatest songs to rearrange and transform them with co-producer Andy Wright, plus strings and things. Expect a couple of brand new tracks to accompany the classics.
Echo & the Bunnymen's dark, swirling fusion of post-punk and The Doors/The Velvets-inspired pop psychedelia has brought the group twenty top 20 hits and nine top 20 albums in the UK so far in their 40 year existence. The band have come a long way from the group's infamous first concert as a three-piece with a drum machine in 1979 at the legendary Eric’s Club in Liverpool.
Their seminal albums Crocodiles, Heaven Up Here, Porcupine, Ocean Rain, and Echo & The Bunnymen, have all been a major influence for groups such as Coldplay, The Killers and The Flaming Lips; whilst later albums Evergreen, What Are You Going To Do With Your Life?, Siberia, and Meteorites, demonstrate what an amazing body of work the band have.
As one of the most seminal British rock and roll bands of all time, the band’s loyal and ever growing following is showing no signs of abating.
