SANTA MONICA, Calif., Aug. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Echo & The Bunnymen, finishing up the first leg of a triumphant sold out U.S tour in support of their much-lauded 12th album Meteorites, will stop in to The Late Show With David Letterman this week to perform their U.S. single "Holy Moses." The show will air on Thursday, August 21st. Produced by Youth (Killing Joke, The Verve), Meteorites contains 10 highly personal songs written by founder Ian McCulloch and performed by Bunnymen stalwarts McCulloch and Will Sergeant along with Gordy Goudie (guitar) and Stephen Brannan (bass). Ian McCulloch considers Meteorites to be the worthy successor to Crocodiles, Heaven Up Here, Porcupine and Ocean Rain. Says Paste Magazine: "The pair infused new energy into the trademark Bunnymen sound, balancing McCulloch's ennui with flourishes of strings that often suggest a latter-day follow-up to their 1984 album, Ocean Rain." In addition, the "Holy Moses" single will be available at the special price of 69 cents from Tuesday, August 19 thru Monday, August 25th at all retailers. Meteorites was released in the UK on May 26th and the U.S. on June 3rd.
Formed in 1978, the Bunnymen have been a vital force in the indie rock world for over 36 years having won over millions of obsessive music fans worldwide and indelibly influenced countless bands with their signature sound—from the Flaming Lips to Coldplay to Pavement. Meteorites is a key addition to their repertoire. It's an intimate song cycle written by Ian McCulloch performed by the band with a renewed sense of purpose showcasing all of their unmistakable musical hallmarks while taking them to a new level.
Says Blurt Magazine: "Meteorites is a clarion call to all of their followers, from the Flaming Lips to Interpol, that Echo & The Bunnymen have finally come back to reclaim their rightful place back in front of the spotlight."
