Ian McCulloch and band emerge from the studio with a new EP including a cover of American's 'Horse With No Name'...

Echo And The Bunnymen have a new six track EP recorded and ready for release, according to their official website [url=] .

The band, currently without a record deal since they parted company with label London Records during the autumn of last year, have re-recorded three of their former hits ‘Angels and Devils’, ‘Silver’ and ‘Zimbo’, covered ‘Moonlight Drive’ by The Doors and ‘Horse With No Name’ by America as well as one brand new track provisionally titled ‘roxy/wire’.

It would mark the first new material since mid-1999’s ‘What Are You Going To Do With Your Life’ LP.

Guitarist Will Seargant is quoted as saying the EP is a “kind of live/semi-unplugged trip out sort of thing”. No release dates or names of any possible new label deal is mentioned.

A spokesperson for the group confirmed that they had have been working in the studio, but could not say when the EP would emerge or to whom the band would be signed.
