Echo & the Bunnymen have announced a brand new studio album ‘The Stars, The Oceans & The Moon’ for 2018, along with a headline UK tour culminating at London Royal Albert Hall.

This new studio album will see The Bunnymen, still lead by the indominable Ian McCulloch and Will Sergeant, revisit some of their greatest songs to rearrange and transform them with co-producer Andy Wright and …strings and things. Expect a couple of brand new tracks to accompany the classics.

Echo & the Bunnymen's dark, swirling fusion of post-punk and The Doors/The Velvets-inspired pop psychedelia has brought the group twenty top 20 hits and nine top 20 albums in the UK so far in their 40 year existence. The band have come a long way from the group's infamous first concert as a three-piece with a drum machine in 1979 at the legendary Erics club in Liverpool, The Bunnymen still perform sell-out concerts across the world today.

The Bunnymen are still revered by those in the best of popular culture. In the past year alone, the highly acclaimed and culturally phenomenal Netflix series 'Stranger Things' has used the song 'Nocturnal Me' whilst the equally comparable '13 Reasons Why' has used 'The Killing Moon', a song also used on another Netflix show, 'Dead of Summer'.

As one of the most seminal British rock and roll bands of all time, the band’s loyal and ever growing following is showing no signs of abating.

A great night of classic music and epic tracks all delivered with all the original feel you would want for such great songs.The sound was amazing for such a venue and immersed us in the full "Bunnymen" experience.Ian was a confident veteran whose voice still has the original edge that leads some of the best songs ever written and serenaded a crowd that absorbed it all with obvious enthusiasm.The only question left is why they were never bigger than they were as their music and Ian's character have what it takes and then some!

Ian and the boys put on a good show. Should have been longer than 75 minutes given that they have a ton of material. Saw them last year at The Commodire and that wa a better show.
