Wreckless Eric will release new album Construction Time & Demolition on March 30 via Southern Domestic Records. Eric says:

I've reached an age when I see buildings being torn down that I remember being built. In the early seventies when I lived in Hull I saw whole streets demolished, turned into vast expanses of dust and crumbled brick. The residents were relocated to faraway places that I only knew as destinations on the fronts of city buses.

I wanted the music to sound as though it was demolishing itself as it went along, and at times I wanted to actually hear it destroy itself, fuzz in and out until all that was left was the flat tone of a heart that's stopped beating.

Eric hasn't released a song from the album yet but you can check out the artwork and tracklist below.

You can catch Wreckless Eric on tour this year. It's not quite the "Whole Wide World," but he does have dates in the UK, Europe and North America, including a NYC show at Berlin on May 3. Tickets are on sale now.

All dates are listed, along with vintage video of Eric playing "Whole Wide World" and a stream of his 2015 album amERICa, below.
