Erasure have announced dates for the North American leg of their ongoing ‘World Be Gone’ tour with news of shows across the USA and Canada in July and August 2018.

For the first time in years, they self-produced the album. “We have the ability to do it and we felt confident enough to do it ourselves this time,” Clarke said. “It wasn’t a complicated record to make. We kept it simple and made it musically minimal and vocally heavy.”

In March, Erasure released “World Beyond,” a re-creation of “World Be Gone” with strings by the Belgian chamber ensemble Echo Collective replacing Clarke’s synths. Clarke came up with the idea after his record label started talking about reissuing “World Be Gone” with a remixed bonus disc.


Erasure are an English synthpop duo, consisting of singer and songwriter Andy Bell and songwriter and keyboardist Vince Clarke. They formed in London in 1985 as part of the club scene. Their debut was single "Who Needs Love Like That". With their fourth single, "Sometimes", the duo established itself on the UK Singles Chart and became one of the most successful artists of the late 1980s to mid-1990s.

Their highest charting US single (on the Billboard Hot 100) was their 1988 single "Chains of Love", which hit #12 on the chart. They also had Top 20 US hits with the songs "A Little Respect", and "Always". From 1986 to 2007, Erasure achieved 24 consecutive Top 40 hits in the UK. By 2009, 34 of their 37 chart-eligible singles and EPs had made the UK Top 40, with 17 climbing into the Top 10. At the 1989 Brit Awards, Erasure won the Brit Award for Best British Group.

The duo are most popular in their native UK and mainland Europe (especially Germany, Denmark, and Sweden) and also in South America (especially Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, and Peru). The band is also popular within the LGBT community, for whom the openly gay Bell has become a gay icon.They have penned over 200 songs and have sold over 25 million albums worldwide.
