Echo & The Bunnymen are releasing new music and hitting the road. The new album is out this week and it's called "Meteorites". This release marks the bands  first studio release since 2009's "The Fountain," and features their new single "Lovers on the Run."  Leadsinger Ian McCulloch says the record changed his life, and calls it the "worthy successor" to their classic early albums from the '80s.  The Bunnymen are scheduled to bring "Meteorites" on the road in North America this summer starting August 1st in Los Angeles.
