“We couldn’t be more excited to start playing concerts again. We’ve missed seeing our friends on the road around the world and the energy of performing live,” said Curt Smith. 

“The Tipping Point has been a long time in the making and we are looking forward to playing our favorites from the new album as well as our classics from throughout the years,” shared Roland Orzabal.

Tears For Fears recently announced their first new album in 17 years. The group announced Thursday that their forthcoming LP The Tipping Point arrives on February 25, 2022. Stream the official music video for the title track below.

“Before everything went so right with this album, everything first had to go wrong, it took years, but something happens when we put our heads together,” Roland Orzabal said when talking about the band’s decision to put out a new record.

The group’s last bit of new music came in 2017 when they released two new tracks – ” Love You But I’m Lost” and “Stay” – as part of their Rule The World greatest hits effort.

The Tipping Point is up for pre-order now HERE. The album is available on special limited edition Spring Green Vinyl and Limited Edition CD; each accompanied by a limited edition lithograph print. The album is also available on Limited Edition Cassette, as well as for pre-save across all major streaming services.

Fans can purchase regular editions of the vinyl and CD, plus more album merchandise HERE.

Tears For Fears’ last album – 2014’s Everybody Loves a Happy Ending – peaked at No. 46 on the Billboard 200 and No. 10 on the UK Independent Albums Chart.
