TVD Ticket Giveaway: Erasure at 9:30 Club,
9/6 or 9/7 (you choose)

How can I explain?/ When there are few words I can choose/ How can I explain…

…HOW MUCH I LOVE ERASURE. The synth-pop duo start off their Tomorrow’s World tour today, which hits 9:30 Club for two nights next week, Tuesday (9/6) and Wednesday (9/7). We have a pair of tickets for you to win, and you get to choose which night you want!

Vince Clarke (whom you may remember from some other UK band called Depeche Mode) and Andy Bell have been making glorious new wave music together for twenty-six years now, with notable hits “Chains of Love,” “A Little Respect,” (both from The Innocents LP) and “Always” (from I Say I Say I Say) during the ’80s and ’90s.

Their fourteenth studio album Tomorrow’s World will be released via Mute Records on October 4th, and the first single from the album, “When I Start To (Break It All Down),” was just released as a download on Monday.



Erasure | A Little Respect (HMI Redux)



Erasure | When I Start To (Break It All Down)

The album was produced by Frankmusik, whose production credits include Lady Gaga, Pet Shop Boys, and Ellie Goulding, and who is also opening for the duo.



For a chance to win the tickets, tell us in the comments below, your fave synth-pop or new wave jam.

Today, I’m in the mood for Matthew Wilder’s so-bad-it’s-so-good “Break My Stride.”

The winner will be chosen on Friday (9/2) at noon.

    Only You by Yaz (or Yazoo, depending on which side of the pond you call home).

    Pretty much anything by Depeche Mode.  (Is that too broad?)  Erasure’s “A Little Respect” I think does qualify as one of the best pop songs in the history of the universe, though.

    Let’s not forget Vince was half of Yazoo!

    Always – Erasure and Bizarre Love Triangle -New Order. Can’t pick just one!

  • SGJ

    Although some of the newer groups (the Sounds, Cold Cave) are doing the genre credit, the all-time best is a tie between Joy Division’s ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ and New Order’s ‘Shell Shock’. Thanks for this trip down memory lane, TVD.

    The Great Comandment by Camouflage. One of the most underrated synth bands of the 80’s. That song is and will always be one of my favorite songs.

  • Jill

    “Temptation” by New Order
