Band announces fall dates; working on new studio record currently set for 2017 release

Tears for Fears' Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith are pleased to announce they have rescheduled as many previously postponed tour dates in the fall as possible. Tickets purchased for the original dates will be honored for the new dates, or refunds will be available at point of purchase.

The band was scheduled to perform as part of "Tuesday in the Park" at Artpark, but had to cancel due to a family illness.

The closest the band will come to Western New York - for now - is Casino Rama. The band performs Oct. 1 in Orillia, Ontario.

Tears for Fears are currently working hard both in the U.S. and the U.K. on a new record, which will be released in 2017 on Warner Bros. Records.

The U.K. band formed in 1981 and has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide to date. They have released four albums as a group. Their platinum-selling 1983 debut, "The Hurting," reached No. 1 on the U.K. albums chart, while their second album, 1985's "Songs from the Big Chair," reached No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard Top 200 - and spawned two massive hits, "Shout" and "Everybody Wants To Rule The World." The latter won the BRIT Award for Best British single in 1986.

Orzabal and Smith released "The Seeds of Love" in 1989 and, after a break, reunited to release "Everybody Loves a Happy Ending" in 2004.
