A Flock Of Seagulls today released their new single, ‘Space Age Love Song’. Accompanied by a video featuring the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra (with whom they recorded the track), the song is from their upcoming album, ‘Ascension’, set for release on June 29. The band are set to tour across the US later in the summer.
A Flock Of Seagulls never really broke up, with Mike continuing to record and tour with session musicians. The band have found themselves worked into the fabric of popular culture: TV – Ross’ haircut in ‘Friends’ was based on their styling; Computer Games – ‘I Ran’ was the standout track on ‘Grand Theft Auto Radio’; and Film where the band and their haircuts have been referenced in ‘Pulp Fiction, ‘X-Men’, and ‘The Wedding Singer’. With these nods have come a whole new legion of fans.
In 2003, the original lineup of Mike, Ali, Frank, and Paul came together for a one-off performance on the VH1 series, ‘Bands Reunited’. They reformed again in September 2004, when they did a brief tour of the US. Between 2004 and 2017 Mike was busy touring with his session band all over the world, then later in 2017, the original four appeared on record together for the first time since 1984. The Ascension album was recorded in multiple studios around the world and featured the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra providing backing.
