Nostalgia is in the air. For those of you who realize this band was much more than a track on the Pretty In Pink soundtrack, rejoice! Echo & The Bunnymen are in the studio and planning to release a new album later this year. The scousers are also hoping to follow up the album with a world tour according to SoundGenerator. They are currently recording their 9th album at Ian McCulloch’s favorite Liverpool haunt, Parr Street studios with producer Hugh Jones. Jones previously worked with the band as producer on Heaven Up There and engineer on Crocodiles. I'm assuming original Bunnyman Will Sergeant will be on guitar, but who will be playing bass and drums? Last time around it was Leon De Sylva on bass and Tony McGuigan on drums.
