Meteorites

Album: Meteorites (2014)
  • Prior to writing the songs for Meteorites, Echo's frontman, Ian McCulloch, endured the worst depression of his life. "Where is the hope in me?" he wonders in the title track. "I don't really want to harp on about this too much, but that's what the album is all about, that's why it's tinged all the way through with darkness," McCulloch explained to The Independent. "I got low. I'm better now. I'm just trying to find balance in life, though I'm not sure I ever will."
