Bad Lieutenant, the project formed in 2007 by New Order’s Bernard Sumner (guitar, vocals) and Phil Cunningham (guitar), along with Jake Evans (guitar, vocals), will see the long-awaited North American release of their debut album, Never Cry Another Tear, on October 6 on their own Triple Echo Records imprint. Initially and for a one week period, the album will be available as a digital download exclusively through Amazon.com; subsequently, for one month beginning October 13, the full, physical CD can be purchased only at Amazon.com. On November 10, Never Cry Another Tear will be distributed to all other retail outlets via a partnership with Original Signal Recordings.
In addition, “Sink or Swim,” the first single from Never Cry Another Tear, is now available as a free download for a limited amount of time on Bad Lieutenant’s website. “Sink or Swim,” along with the new track “Dynamo,” will be released as a single on September 28 via digital retailers.
