I have been waiting for this for a long time now, so it goes without saying how excited I am to learn that my favorite band of all time is going to release a new album come April!
Echo and the Bunnymen have been around for a long time now, dating back to the post punk era of Liverpool England circa 1978. I first heard them back as a senior in high school in 1988 when my best friend thought that I would really dig them and played me their cd. Their sound, lyrics and vibe was what instantaneously connected with me unlike any other band that I heard over the radio. There was something different about the Bunnymen that drew me in. Their sound was majestic, mysterious, philosophical, metaphysical, passionate and in some fashion which I can’t quite explain totally personal to me.
The Bunnymen became “my band” which over the course of years has had such an impact upon me both in terms of their music, but also being blessed to be able to get to know them and call them friends.
So if you want to listen to some real deal music made by genuine musicians who have been creating awesome, atmospheric and way super cool sounds for a long time now, then go show your support and purchase their new album. I bet it will be music to your ears!
