NEVER STOP!

There's a world tour plus the release of their classic albums in remastered and expanded form...

Echo And The Bunnymen are to celebrate their 25th anniversary with a world tour and by releasing remastered and expanded versions of their classic albums.

The band, who played their first date at Liverpool’s legendary Eric’s Club on November 15, Echo And The Bunnymen see their first five albums – ‘Crocodiles’, ‘Heaven Up Here’, ‘Porcupine’, ‘Ocean Rain’ and ‘Echo & The Bunnymen’ – get the reissue treatment.

All five will be repackaged and feature new inner artwork and photos, plus personal comments from the band. Each album is bolstered by a healthy ration of extras, non-album singles, B-sides, EPs, live tracks and studio out-takes, many of which are either ultra rare or are previously unreleased.

The band go on a world tour to celebrate their anniversary later this year, taking in the UK, USA, Brazil, Japan, Australia and mainland Europe.
