“Holy Moses” from forthcoming Meteorite release
Echo & the Bunnymen have a new album on the way and a tour of the US this fall. I celebrate with a bit of trepidation since the last time I bought Echo & the Bunnymen tickets I was very excited to go see the show only to hear they were canceling the tour blaming the IRS. When you hear something like that as a fan it makes you question things and wonder if this is just about the money man. What about the fans? I was swearing the names of many Liverpudlians.
With irony intact they have announced a new US tour on the IRS holiday known as tax day, today April 15th. Surely it will be too hot to wear the old leather jacket in the Metro come August 10th.
Maybe in this year of 2014 Echo & the Bunnymen will finally take U2′s crown?? New album produced by Youth is titled Meteorites and you can pledge your allegiance here.
