Echo & the Bunnymen have released further details about studio album number twelve. The Stars, the Oceans & the Moon will be released on October 5th. It offers a set of new perspectives on one of the most majestic back catalogues of modern times – 21st century versions of thirteen classics (including the Killing Moon, Nothing Lasts Forever and Rescue) re-recorded with synths and strings and things. The album also features two timeless new songs (the Somnambulist and How Far?).

 Echo & the Bunnymen head out on a previously announced UK tour in May/June 2018. These dates will be the first time the band have played the new The Stars, the Oceans & the Moon arrangements on stage.
