The second of our Echo & The Bunnymen remastered re-issues is "Heaven Up Here".

After the high acclaim of their debut 'Crocodiles', 'Heaven Up Here' was released in May 1981 and produced by Hugh Jones. Lauded as revealing a much darker side to the band, the album drew comparisons to Joy Division from many quarters. Although Ian McCullough in relation to their style of music in 1981, insists "We're a rock band. Because I'm proud of that".

Recorded in March 1981 at Rockfield Studios the album won NME's 'Best Album' and 'Best Dressed LP' Awards in 1981 and also made it into Rolling Stones list of 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time. The cover is a shot taken on a wet Southern Welsh beach on a day off from recording. Photographer Brian Griffin using the dark clouds in the sky and the low sun on the horizon to silhouette the band. The bands manager Drummond saw them representing "cold, dampness, darkness".

The band released 2 singles from the album "A Promise" and "Over The Wall'.
