Ian McCulloch, Les Pattinson and Will Sergent began making music together as Echo & The Bunnymen in 1978, later joined by drummer Pete de Freitas after using a drum machine for the first two years the band were in action. In 1980 the group released their debut album ‘Crocodiles’, which was met with critical acclaim and entered the UK Top 20 the week it was released.
After their first LP release, Echo & The Bunnymen continued their string of chart hits that included their second and third albums ‘Heaven Up Here’ and ‘Porcupine’, as well as the single ‘The Cutter’, all of which gained high places in the UK Top 10. After the bands drummer Freitas was unfortunately killed in a traffic collision and a band split 1993, Echo & The Bunnymen returned in 1997, bringing further chart success with ‘Nothing Lasts Forever’ and a series of albums that were released between ’99 and ’09.
Meteorites is the most recent album from Echo & The Bunnymen, which was released last June and proved once again that the band are still on form, fronting 10 self written tracks and being described as ‘starry eyed anthemic rock with neat hints of their intoxicating formative years’.
Echo & The Bunnymen are embarking on a UK tour this summer that will see them playing at a number of festivals including Calling Festival and Willowman Festival as well as a number of headline gigs in Leeds, St. Helens, Bristol and here at Liverpool’s O2 Academy.
