Echo and the Bunnymen to Release New Album, Go on World Tour


Fans of Echo and the Bunnymen, it looks like some really good news is on the horizon for your little black hearts.

The band have taken to their Facebook page to announce that they will be releasing a new album, soon. The date and other information, at the time, are unknown, but by the countdown that they have going on the social media account, more information should be coming our way in T-minus six days. For all purposes, the album is still-untitled, but frontman Ian McCulloch has previously referred to it as The Garden of Meedin.’ 

When asked about the new material in an interview last May, McCulloch said, “It’s the band’s best work for a very long time. [It’s] more like the early stuff with loads of spiky guitars and space.”

“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.”

The last album that the Liverpool-based group released was 2009′s The Fountain. In support of the new album, the band have also announced that they would be going on a world tour. Dates, like much of the album’s information, are still unknown, but according to NME, the European dates are already a done deal and are currently int he process of booking the North American dates.

Nine Inch Nails Release Documentary Online

Nine Inch Nails

Nine Inch Nails frontman, Trent Reznor recently announced that his band, with a brand new line-up, will be heading out on a massive tour.

Now, Reznor has released a 75 minute documentary which shows the behind-the-scenes of NIN’s 1994-1996 “Self Destruct” tour. The documentary can be found at the band’s Tumblr page which before was only found in the 1997 Closure VHS (yes, I did say VHS). In a disclaimer like note, Reznor warns that the video contains some NSFW content as well as special appearances by Marilyn Manson and David Bowie.

Reznor also posted another rarity that many fans of the industrial band would like, an acoustic performance of “The Becoming” from the band’s 1994 release, The Downward Spiral. The performance was filmed at Nothing Studios in New Orleans in 2002 with Trent Reznor, Danny Lohner, and Jerome Dillon and was directed by Rob Sheridan, according to the note attached.

But that didn’t end Rezonr’s generous gift for the fans. He also included two more videos from the Still series, “Something I Can Never Have” and “Gone Still.”

The new, revamped Nine Inch Nails is slated to start touring in the Summer, with a US arena tour starting in the Fall and a full world tour starting in 2014.
