Music: Erasure Brings ‘The Violet Flame’ to ACL Live


Erasure is following up their 2013 hit album, ‘Snow Globe,’ with ‘The Violet Flame’ and a tour fans won’t want to miss. Almost 30 years ago, the electro pop duo (Vince Clarke and openly gay singing siren Andy Bell) stepped into the music world with top chart hits “A Little Respect,” “Sometimes,” “Chains of Love,” and “Always.”

The Violet Flame, produced by Richard X, is a solid effort all on its own, but the veteran pair didn’t stop there, releasing a live version recorded in London, and a compilation of remixes by various musicians, including British singer Paul Humphreys and producer Daniel Miller. Hear the synth-pop sounds of the legendary Erasure for two night only at ACL Live this weekend, joined by Los Angeles pop band Superhumanoids. And if you miss out on the show, head over to Highland Lounge for the official Erasure after party with Andy Bell as the special guest DJ.
