Echo And The Bunnymen have announced their new album Meteorites to be released on 429 Records, May 5th. A UK and European tour to support the album begins on May 2nd.

Here’s the info:
“Legendary Liverpool band Echo and The Bunnymen are putting the finishing touches on their 12th studio album and first since 2009, Meteorites, which will be released May 5th on 429 Records and distributed by Caroline.  The album will also be released by 429 Records in the U.S. on June 3rd. Produced by Youth (Killing Joke, The Verve), the album contains ten hand-picked new songs written by founder Ian McCulloch and performed with Will Sergeant on guitar. In conjunction with the album’s release, the band will embark on a tour of Europe and the UK beginning in May (see confirmed dates below), before heading off to the US in August.”

Says McCulloch: “‘Meteorites’, the new Bunnymen album…at long last we’ve made the worthy successor to ‘Crocodiles,’ ‘Heaven Up Here,’ ‘Porcupine’ and ‘Ocean Rain.’ ‘Meteorites’ is what Echo and the Bunnymen mean and are meant to be – up there in heaven – untouchable, celestial, beautiful and real. It has changed my life”
