ustour.jpgWhile we’ve known ERASURE’s Andy Bell and Vince Clark have been hard at work in the recording studio for the past several months, we didn’t know when their new album would be completed. Well–the wait is over! The band announced today that their new studio album, entitled Tomorrow’s World, will be released this Fall from Mute Records. Also this Fall, ERASURE will tour the US with their Tomorrow’s World Tour, which stops at Orlando’s House of Blues on September 2nd. According to ERASURE Information Service:ERASURE RETURNS WITH BRAND NEW ALBUM TOMORROW’S WORLD + ANNOUNCE FIRST US TOUR DATES IN 5 YEARS!
Synthpop pioneers Erasure are back with Tomorrow’s World, the band’s first album in more than four years. The new album is out Fall 2011 and is produced by one of the UK dance scene’s most exciting new talents, Frankmusik, whose remixing credits include Lady Gaga, Pet Shop Boys, Ellie Goulding and Far East Movement, and whose solo album Complete Me debuted at number 13 in the UK Albums Chart. Tomorrow’s World was mixed by Rob Orton. 

After Erasure’s triumphant return to the stage for Short Circuit presents Mute at the Roundhouse, London – a one-off performance which saw Vince Clarke perform with very special guests Alison Moyet and Feargal Sharkey – plus a performance at 2011’s Ultra Music festival, Erasure is bringing the new album to the USA for their first tour in five years.

The 25-date US tour begins on August 31st in Tampa, continues through September, and finishes in Seattle on October 6th. Tickets go on sale on Friday June 24th. Venue presales (not the EIS presale!) – which will offer a chance to preorder the new album Tomorrow’s World – will start on Wednesday June 22nd, see the Erasure website for details. 

Tomorrow’s World was written in New York, London, and at Vince Clarke’s cabin studio in Maine following a short break, which found Andy Bell recording and releasing his second solo album Non Stop, and Vince Clarke reuniting with former Yazoo partner Alison Moyet for a recent tour.  It was recorded in Maine, London and Los Angeles between January and June 2011, with Vince using his vintage collection of analog synths for the final touch. The end result is a collection of electronic songs that sound totally contemporary and classic at the same time.  All songs are written by Bell and Clarke.

Tomorrow’s World is set for release on Mute in Fall 2011.
