Tears For Fears have announced they will play an intimate London show at Shepherd’s Bush Empire on Monday, July 4.
Curt Smith and Roland Orzabal will release their first new album as Tears For Fears in 17 years, The Tipping Point, this Friday, February 25. Tickets for what must be one of the smallest gigs the duo have played for years also go on sale on Friday at 10am. Visit the band’s official website for tickets and further information.
“When you’ve known each other as long as we have, and have worked together as long as we have, there’s a bond there that becomes familial. So, it’s different from a friendship,” Smith says of the new reunion. “And it’s different from a marriage. It’s literally like that’s your brother. It’s the kind of bond that you can’t really break. It can fall apart at times. You separate for periods, which I also think is healthy, really. But in the end, we always seem to find each other again.”
Tears For Fears recently announced an extensive UK tour for July, with special guest Alison Moyet in support. They have also released videos for “No Small Thing”, the album’s title track and, most recently, “Break The Man”.
