While dates have yet to be announced, Echo & The Bunnymen will return to the U.S. this May to perform their first two albums — 1980’s Crocodiles and 1981’s Heaven Up Here — in their entirety. The band posted the news on its Facebook page yesterday, writing, “Echo & The Bunnymen will be taking the Crocs & HUH shows to the USA in May. More details to follow soon.” The Bunnymen, who have performed their 1984 album Ocean Rain live in recent years, played Crocodiles and Heaven Up Here back-to-back on a short run of U.K. dates last month.
