New Boots has teamed up with promoters SJM to give away a pair of tickets to see Echo & The Bunnymen at Royal & Derngate this month.
The band headline the Northampton venue on Saturday, October 20, only weeks after the release of their latest album The Stars, The Oceans & The Moon.
Their 13th album sees the band revisit their back catalogue to reinterpret some of their most beloved songs with ‘strings and things’. It also features the new tracks How Far and The Somnambulist.
Echo & The Bunnymen formed in Liverpool in 1978 and are based around the duo of singer Ian McCulloch and guitarist Will Sergeant.
Of the new versions McCulloch said, “I’m not doing this for anyone else. I’m doing it as it’s important to me to make the songs better. I have to do it”.
