Tears For Fears Working on New Album, Announce Rescheduled North American Dates For Fall

by VVN Music

Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith first came together in 1981 to form the band Tears For Fears and, although they broke up for a number of years and Orzabal worked with other musicians under the name, they have been back together since 2000.

Sometime next year, Orzabal and Smith will release Tears For Fears' seventh studio album and the followup to their 2004 set Everybody Loves a Happy Ending. There is no further information, at this time, about the upcoming set; however, the duo is set to return to North America mid-September for fifteen rescheduled dates around North America. 

The original dates were set for over the summer, but the duo released a statement in May saying "It’s with great disappointment that we have to postpone our US summer dates due to unforeseen and unhappy circumstances. We thank our fans for their understanding and hope to get back on the road soon."

The unnamed situation must now be alleviated as Tears For Fears have set an opening of September 17 in Goldendale, WA with the tour running through October 9 in San Diego, CA.
