Echo & The Bunnymen have announced they will release The John Peel Sessions 1979-1983 on September 6th via Rhino Records. Available on vinyl and CD plus a limited run of 500 double red vinyl LPs.

Guitarist Will Sergeant had this to say: “Without John Peel sessions, Echo And The Bunnymen in my opinion, would not exist! It’s that simple. The band got so much support from him and John Walters (Peel’s producer). Recording a Peel session was essential to the development of our songwriting skills while at the same time giving us amazing exposure and self-belief. We had been given the ultimate accolade, Peel rated us. This to me was more important than any chart position or appearance on TOTP or any other show. I loved John Peel for inviting us to do sessions and for what he and the show had done for us, and I will never forget that.”
