On June 3rd, Echo and the Bunnymen return with their new album, Meteorites. The 10-track effort marks their 12th to date and, according to frontman Ian McCulloch, is “the band’s best work for a very long time”.
He added, “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.”
In anticipation, the English outfit have let loose two new LP cuts entitled “Lovers on the Run” and “Holy Moses”. Much like lead track “Market Town”, both are wistful, New Wave-era anthems in their own right, sure to satisfy new and old fans alike. Stream both songs below.
