Erica Nockalls has announced UK tour dates with seminal band Echo And The Bunnymen. The tour will see the band perform their revered album Ocean Rain with The Liverpool Philharmonic.
Erica Nockalls is an English vocalist and violinist who creates a dark, intense brand of alternative pop music. She made a name for herself collaborating with a number of renowned bands and artists ranging from The Wonder Stuff and Echo and the Bunnymen, to Tronos, The Proclaimers and Immaculate Fools.
To celebrate the announcement, Nockalls has unveiled a video for her track Build Me a Ship. Taken from her 2021 album Dark Music From A Warm Place the video is a visually captivating, noir-inspired promo that works perfectly with Erica’s ethereal sound.
Erica partnered with Parisian studio producer/artist Jean-Charles Versari to create the album, and the duo will perform excerpts of the record supporting The Bunnymen.
Alongside the video release, Erica has also dropped a b-side cover of Roxy Music’s In Every Dream Home a Heartache (feat. Jean-Charles Versari).
