British synth-rock pionners Ultravox are set to return with
their first studio album in 28 years. Following on from the sold-out Return To Eden reformation shows in
2009, the classic Ultravox line-up of Midge Ure, Billy Currie, Chris Cross and
Warren Cann has recorded a 12-track album of brand new songs titled Brilliant which will be
released digitally in the U.S.
on May 29th via EMI. It’s described as “dramatic, passionate, and
truly epic in scale and sound.”
tour is planned for September and October
The backstory: Emerging
from the new wave and electro scenes of the late ‘70s, Ultravox fashioned a
form of electronic rock music that was uniquely powerful and delivered massive
hits through the 1980s such as “Hymn,” “Dancing With Tears In My Eyes,” “The
Voice,” “Reap The Wild Wind,” “Love’s Great Adventure,” “We Came To Dance,” and
of course the atmospheric “Vienna.” More details on the band available at www.ultravox.org.uk.
