•   "Legendary Liverpool band Echo & the Bunnymen to release their 12th studio album and first since 2009, Meteorites. Produced by Youth (Killing Joke, The Verve), the album contains ten hand-picked new songs written by founder Ian McCulloch and performed by Bunnymen stalwarts Mc Culloch and Will Sergeant along with Gordy Goudie (guitar) and Stephen Brannan (bass). Formed in 1978, the Bunnymen have been a vital force in the indie rock world for over 36 years having won over millions of obsessive music fans worldwide and indelibly influenced countless bands with their signature sound from the Flaming Lips to Coldplay to Pavement. Meteorites is a key addition to their repertoire. It s an intimate song cycle written by Ian McCulloch performed by the band with a renewed sense of purpose showcasing all of their unmistakable musical hallmarks while taking them to a new level. Says McCulloch: Meteorites , the new Bunnymen album..., at long last we ve made the worthy successor to Crocodiles, Heaven Up Here, Porcupine and Ocean Rain. Meteorites is what Echo and the Bunnymen mean and are meant to be up there in heaven — untouchable, celestial, beautiful and real. It has changed my life."

William Alfred "Will" Sergeant (born 12 April 1958, Melling) is an English guitarist, best known for being a member of Echo & the Bunnymen. Born in the centre of Liverpool, he grew up in the village of Melling and attended nearby Deyes High School. He is the group's only constant member.
Notable instruments:
•   Fender Telecaster
•   Fender Jaguar
•   Gibson EDS-1275
Playing style:
◊   Throughout his time with the Bunnymen in the 80s, Sergeant used a black Fender Telecaster with lots of reverb and delay. This gave the Bunnymen sound a clear, cutting tone. On several occasions during the 80s Sergeant would use a Fender Jaguar guitar. He used a Fender Stratocaster to a great extent on the 1987 Echo & The Bunnymen album. When the Bunnymen reformed in 1998 he started using his Jaguar as his main instrument with a lot of tremolo. He also uses a Vox 12 string guitar.
