Echo and the Bunnymen finishing new album, plan world tour

on February 17, 2014, 11:17am

Echo and the Bunnymen will soon return with a new studio album, their first since 2009’s The Fountain.

According to a note posted on Facebook, the album was produced by Killing Joke bassist Youth. Frontman Ian McCulloch is quoted as saying “it’s the band’s best work for a very long time.”

Currently, the album is without a title, though McCulloch previously referred to it as The Garden of Meedin’. In an interview with The Quietus in May 2013, he said the album is “more like the early stuff with loads of spiky guitars and space.” He continued, “The idea is to make the greatest album we’ve ever made. I always go into things thinking that anyway. I’ve spent the last 10 years trying to see where I could go with my voice and if I could write some bridges. Then I looked back and realised we never had any bridges.”

Echo and the Bunnymen plan to support the release with a world tour, which will include a leg of North American tour dates.

Additional details are forthcoming, including a release date, artwork, and those tour dates.

It’s hard to come by educated people on this subject, however, you seem like you know what you’re talking about! Thanks
