Sure, the band has played a few one-offs in North America, as indicated in the above photo, but the synth-pop duo of Andy Bell and Vince Clarke haven’t done any extensive touring on this side of the Pond since 2007.
The band’s new album, Tomorrow’s World, is set for a fall release, the same time the band ventures out on its journey through North America. Funny how these things have a tendency to coincide with each other, isn’t it?
