Erasure

Synthpop superstars Erasure have announced their new album, The Violet Flame, will be out via Mute on September 23. While they haven't released a song from the album yet, the album will be available for pre-order on May 28, and you can watch a trailer for album below featuring some new music which takes them a bit into EDM territory.

With the new record, Vince Clarke and Andy Bell will be taking Erasure on the road, which includes New Year's eve shows at NYC's Terminal 5 on December 30 & 31. Tickets for those T5 shows go on sale Friday (May 30) at noon, with Pledgemusic presales starting Wednesday (5/27) at 10 AM and an AmEx presale starting Wednesday at noon.

Vince Clarke will be in NYC sooner than that, DJing with Mute prez Daniel Miller at Bowery Ballroom on July 3 (Vince's birthday).

All tour dates are listed, along with the album trailer, below...
