British post-punk legends Echo and the Bunnymen will release a new album, ‘The Garden of Meedin’,’ later this year. The record follows their 2009 release of ‘The Fountain,’ and according to frontman Ian McCulloch, it harks back to their earlier material.

“It’s more like the early stuff with loads of spiky guitars and space,” said McCulloch in a recent statement. “But as much as this is reminiscent of the past, it feels dead new to me. There’s loads of space on there and it just unwinds during the course. I like that about us, things like ‘Over The Wall’ – it sounds like a journey.”

“It sounds fantastic. It’s just a different kind of ambition. The idea is to make the greatest album we’ve ever made. I always go into things thinking that anyway,” he went on to say. “I’ve spent the last 10 years trying to see where I could go with my voice and if I could write some bridges. Then I looked back and realized we never had any bridges.”

No word yet on the release date, but you can keep up with the Bunnymen via their official website, Facebook and Twitter.
