Echo The Bunnymen 2

Track Of The Day #484: Echo And The Bunnymen – ‘Market Town’

Echo+The+Bunnymen+2

Excellent new track from the legendary Echo And The Bunnymen, taken from the upcoming album ‘Meteorites’. The LP is the band’s first material in five years and follows 2009’s ‘The Fountain’. Anthemically psychedelic and seven minutes long, it’s an epic that sees Ian McCulloch and Will Sergeant back on tremendous form. Mac says: “At long last we’ve made the worthy successor to ‘Crocodiles’, ‘Heaven Up Here’, ‘Porcupine’, and ‘Ocean Rain’. ‘Meteorites’ is what Echo and the Bunnymen mean and are meant to be…up there in Heaven…untouchable, celestial, beautiful, and real…it has changed my life.”

I went to see Echo And The Bunnymen last year when they were on tour with James. See a review of their Bristol gig HERE. The band are on tour next month in May, and dates can be seen below…
