Echo & the Bunnymen has released their 12th studio album and first since 2009, Meteorites. Produced by Youth (Killing Joke, The Verve), the album contains ten hand-picked new songs written by founder Ian McCulloch and performed by Bunnymen stalwarts McCulloch and Will Sergeant along with Gordy Goudie (guitar) and Stephen Brannan (bass).
Says McCulloch: 'at long last we've made the worthy successor to Crocodiles, Heaven Up Here, Porcupine and Ocean Rain. Meteorites is what Echo & the Bunnymen mean and are meant to be up there in heaven - untouchable, celestial, beautiful and real. It has changed my life.'
