Echo and the Bunnymen to release new album next May

1st new album in 4 years, Echo and the Bunnymen to unleash a collection called
“The Stars, The Oceans & The Moon” in May 2018

Will spotlight “Some of their greatest songs” re-recorded “With strings and things attached”,
along with a couple of brand-new songs!

The Bunnymen have also declared UK tour dates to coincide with new album during May/June 2018

Echo and the Bunnymen

Hailing out of Liverpool, England in 1978, Echo and the Bunnymen since forming are ‘without a shadow of a doubt’ quite possibly the most important/influential post-punk band.

Original line-up:
Ian McCulloch – lead vocalist/guitarist
Will Sergeant – guitarist
Les Pattinson – bassist
Pete De Freitas – drummer

Current line-up:
Ian McCulloch – lead vocalist/guitarist
Will Sergeant – guitarist
Gordy Goudie – guitarist
Stephen Brannan – bassist
Jez Wing – keyboardist
Nick Kilroe – drummer

“The Stars, The Oceans & The Moon” album release

They’ve been fairly quiet since 2014 where they released a full-length album “Meteorites” (12th album). Well, that is about to change in 2018 where Echo and the Bunnymen fans will have a new album to look very forward to, for sure. The brand spanking new album, “The Stars, The Oceans & The Moon” will rocking release in May of 2018 and will notably mark Bunnymen classics reconstructed/reinterpreted with
co-producer Andy Wright into “new songs with strings and things attached”.

This is not too bizarre given the Bunnymen’s liberally avant-garde use of strings on classics such as “The Cutter” and “Silver”, with the band’s use of live string sections there during concerts of recent years.

The album will be accessible in signed and unsigned CDs, Double LPs, Double Picture Discs, and cassettes.
