“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 have just announced the forthcoming release of their first new studio album in nearly two decades, THE TIPPING POINT. Arriving February 25th, 2022, via Concord Records, THE TIPPING POINT is a song cycle reflecting many of the personal and professional tipping points the pair -- AND THE WORLD -- have faced throughout the last several years. Pre-order the album BELOW.
Alongside the announcement they’ve also released their first single and the title track, “The Tipping Point.” Written by Orzabal and guitarist, writer and producer Charlton Pettus and co-produced by the band, Sacha Skarbek, and Florian Reutter, the explosive yet intimate track is filled to the brim with emotion. Inspired by a personal tipping point in Orzabal’s own life, this song captures the grief of watching someone you love lose their long-standing battle with disease. The accompanying visual, directed by the famed Matt Mahurin (Joni Mitchell, U2, Metallica), depicts the subtle and poetic portrait of imbalance. Watch the video HERE.
Tears For Fears were one of the most iconic bands of the ‘80s, selling over 30 million albums worldwide with singles such as “Shout,” “Everybody Wants To Rule The World,” “Mad World,” “Sowing The Seeds Of Love,” and “Woman In Chains” acknowledged as classics.
The Tipping Point is the band’s first album since their reunion album Everybody Loves A Happy Ending in 2004. Since then, the band have toured extensively, including a sold-out UK arena tour and in 2017 released Rule The World, a best-of compilation that returned the band to upper reaches of the album charts once more. Earlier this month the band were honored with the Outstanding Song Collection Award at the 2021 Ivor Novello Awards.
The Tipping Point is the bold, beautiful and powerful sound of Tears For Fears finding themselves together, once again.

ABOUT TEARS FOR FEARS
Meanwhile, classic songs figure prominently everywhere from The Wire and Donnie Darko to Straight Outta Compton and Mr. Robot. Long before they became a cultural cornerstone Tears For Fears simply consisted of two school friends growing up in Bath, Somerset UK.
Garbage have been together as a band for over 25 years, with more than 17 million albums under their belt, multiple Grammy nominations and a James Bond theme song for the film The World is Not Enough.
The band’s latest, ferocious new album No Gods No Masters, released in June of this year, is an ambitious, indignant record – overtly socio/ political in tone - touching on themes ranging from global unrest, encroaching climate change, the Black Lives Matter movement, sexism and misogyny. According to music critics all over the globe, they have made the perfect record to articulate these strange and chaotic times.
Enjoying a career of nearly 30 years and counting, Garbage remain one of the most influential bands in alternative rock and one of the most respected live bands of their generation.
