Erasure

 

Erasure (Vince Clarke and Andy Bell) have announced details of a brand new album, The Violet Flame, out on September 23, 2014 with a worldwide tour this Autumn.

 

Recorded in New York and London and produced by Richard X, The Violet Flame follows 2013’s critically acclaimed Snow Globe, and is the band’s sixteenth studio album release. The first single from the 10-track album will be released in mid July.

 

Before the world tour, Erasure will perform at CarFest in the UK on August 1 (Cheshire) and August 22 (Hampshire).

 

The Violet Flame Tour then begins in Miami on September 12, and includes a special Halloween show at The Palms in Las Vegas and two New Year’s Eve shows at New York’s Terminal 5 on December 30 and 31 (full details below). Tickets are on sale from May 30 (UK / Europe) and June 7 (US). Full details from: http://www.erasureinfo.com/concerts/

 

The Violet Flame will be available for pre-order at www.pledgemusic.com/erasure beginning 5am EST on May 28th. The album will be available alongside exclusive Erasure bundles including single, deluxe and box set formats as well as a VIP ticket bundle which will feature the album, premium ticket and meet and greet with the band.

 

Formed nearly 30 years ago, the award-winning songwriting duo of Vince Clarke and Andy Bell unleashed on the nation a succession of both influential and chart-topping pop anthems of the ‘80s, ‘90s through to today. Songs like ‘Oh L’amour,’ ‘A Little Respect,’ ‘Sometimes,’ ‘Victim Of Love,’ ‘Blue Savannah,’ ‘Star,’ ‘Chains Of Love,’ ‘Who Needs Love (Like That),’ ‘Love To Hate You,’ ‘Drama!,’ “Always,” and “Breathe,” ensured a formidable presence on the singles charts complemented by chart topping albums (including The Innocents, Chorus, and I Say I Say I Say) and the beginning of the worldwide Abba revival, ‘Abba-esque.’
