ANNOUNCE BRAND NEW ALBUM: WORLD BE GONE – 19 MAY 2017

HEADLINE TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED IN MAY

STADIUM TOUR W/ ROBBIE WILLIAMS IN THE SUMMER

"…pop perfection" – MOJO

"… a testament to the enduring art of writing emotional pop music" – Electronic Sound

"… premiere fizzy electro entertainment" – Classic Pop

ERASURE (Andy Bell and Vince Clarke) today announce details of their seventeenth studio album, World Be Gone, out on Mute on 19 May 2017.

World Be Gone is the follow up to 2014's The Violet Flame, and follows the band's recent 30th anniversary celebrations.

Their new album sees the award-winning songwriters in a more reflective mood, giving the world and recent political upheavals a thoughtful examination and, as highlighted on the painted artwork showing a ship's masthead rising up from being submerged in the stormy waters, looking forward to the future.

Explains Vince Clarke, "Obviously the current political climate lends itself to lots of ideas", Andy Bell continues, "I think there's an underswell of opinion, and people are slowly waking up. I'm hoping that people will take the album in a positive way, that they'll use it as optimistic rabble-rousing music."

Watch the trailer for the new album here:


Written, performed and produced by Erasure and mixed by Matty Green, MOJO have described the album as "A triumph of achingly beautiful pop protest music." while Electronic Sound describe its "effortless electronic majesty".

Following the album's release, 'Love You To The Sky' Maxi CD and Digital EP will be out on 2 June. The EP includes mixes by Ladytron, Matt Pop, Loframes, Adam Turner and the band's own Vince Clarke as well as a previously unreleased b-side, 'Nothing I Could Say'. 'Love You To The Sky' maxi CD preorder here.

The enduring BRIT and Ivor Novello winning pop duo have released a staggering number of albums, including 5 UK Number 1's and 17 top 10 singles (35 singles charted in the UK Top 40) and their recent best of, Always, saw Erasure entering the Top 10 album charts once again.
