We recently spoke to Roland Orzabal about the triumphant new Tears For Fears album The Tipping Point, a testament that his and Curt Smith's chemistry is still very much in evidence. And that's very much showcased in their recent live session for Sirius XM too, featuring a full-band on three songs – including their timeless classics Mad World and Everybody Wants To Rule The World. And they sound great.
The line-up includes Puscifier member and solo artist Carina Round on backing vocals with Smith picking up a Duesenberg bass for the title track of the new record.
And contrary to him telling us he's an ES-330 man now, Orzabal still brings his old red Strat out for the pair of classics. And he's using a Kemper Profiler, too.
But anything but a Strat on Everybody Wants To Rule The World wouldn't be right, right?
