erasure 2011 Erasure announces new album: Tomorrow’s World

Synthpop pioneers Erasure will return with their first album in more than four years this fall via Mute Records. Titled Tomorrow’s World, the follow-up to 2007’s Light at the End of the World was written by Vince Clarke and Andy Bell in New York, London, and at Clarke’s cabin studio in Maine, and then recorded in Maine, London, and Los Angeles between January and June of this year with producer Frankmusik. With Clarke’s vintage collection of analog synths providing the final touch, the end result is billed as collection of electronic songs that sound “contemporary and classic at the same time.”

In equally major news, Erasure will support the album’s release with their first U.S. tour in five years. Set to begin in Tampa, FL on August 31st, the 25-date trek continues through September before finishing in Seattle on October 6th. Check out the band’s complete upcoming tour schedule below.

Tickets for the U.S. tour go on sale Friday June 24th via Ticketmaster. Ticket pre-sales, which will offer a chance to pre-order the new album, will start on Wednesday June 22nd.
