Erasure's Andy Bell: "My Voice Is Stronger Than Ever"

"I believe I would make a very convincing Russian gangster."

Rocks Off went around asking every person in the entire world and found that there are in fact no people anywhere who do not like synth-pop superstars Erasure.

There was one guy in Sweden who said he was kind of on the fence about liking them, but in the end he admitted he dug "Chains of Love," so there you go.

It's been a while since the band has been on the road, but singer Andy Bell is making a special trip down to H-town this weekend for a little DJing and solo performance at Numbers.

Erasure has a big year coming up, with a brand new studio album in the works, a world tour after that, and a March appearance at the Ultra Music Festival. Even with all that going on, Bell was kind enough to sit down with us for a brief interview.
