Erasure return for Total Pop! Forest Tour

After more than four years away from recording and live performance, Erasure have announced the 'Total Pop!' tour, a series of dates for summer 2011 playing their hits as part of a series of dates in spectacular woodland locations as part of The Forestry Commission's 2011 Forest Tours.

The 'Total Pop! Tour' will coincide with the release of Erasure's brand new album, planned for release in summer 2011. Commenting on the tour, Erasure's Andy Bell said, 'This wonderful opportunity to perform for the fans in such a unique backdrop feels like just the right way to jump back in to Erasure after a four year break. We're excited to be playing in the woods and really hope it doesn’t rain."

Erasure have also announced the release of a brand new version of their top 5 single, 'A Little Respect – HMI Redux', which is out today. Proceeds from the track will be donated to The Hetrick-Martin Institute, the home of the Harvey Milk High School, in New York, and the True Colors Fund. The Hetrick-Martin Institute, the nation's oldest and largest LGBTQ youth service organization, provides a safe and supportive environment to all young people – regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity so that they can achieve their full potential.

Formed 25 years ago, the duo of Vince Clarke and Andy Bell had a succession of influential and chart-topping pop anthems including 'A Little Respect', 'Sometimes', 'Victim Of Love', 'Ship Of Fools', 'Blue Savannah', 'Star', 'Chains Of Love', 'The Circus', 'Who Needs Love (Like That)', 'Love To Hate You', 'Drama!', 'Always' and 'Breathe'.

Clarke's swirling synths and Bell's angelic vocals offer both a contrast and complement to the ancient and bucolic forests in which they will perform. These shows will provide a magical environment for Erasure to deliver their classic hits.
