Today classic British alt-rockers Echo & the Bunnymen announced upcoming U.S. tour dates in support of their forthcoming album, The Fountain, and the jaunt will include a November 25 stop at Metro.
The Fountain marks the band's eleventh studio record and is out on October 12. To give a taste, the Bunnymen recently made album's first single, "Think I Need It Too," available to hear in full via their official MySpace page, alongside brief clips of a few other new songs.
The announcement follows the sad news of the death of the band's long-time keyboardist, Jake Brockman, who died in a motorcycle crash last week. His work will appear on the new record.
Tickets for the Metro show go on sale September 12 and can be purchased here.
