Synth-pop duo Erasure won’t release “When I Start To (Break It All Down),” the first single from their brand new album, Tomorrow’s World, until September 26. (And the whole album doesn’t drop until October 4) But the clip above offers nice version of the song and a peek at their new U.S. tour, kicking off tonight in DC and wrapping in Seattle in October.

Lead singer Andy Bell is bummed about the lack of attention the album is getting, especially in his native England. He tweeted:

Erasure doesn’t seem to exist any more re. the UK media is concerned i.e. including radio they’d much rather support 19 or Psyco than Indies…

We have been Erased in place of the closet case

The boys may not be hitting the dizzying heights of Chorus or The Innocents anymore, but even their lesser efforts are better than most pedestrian Top 10 music. And, having seen Bell dominate the stage a few years back, we can confirm this is a tour you do not want to miss.
