Despite Loveboat still not seeing a US release, it is rumoured that Maverick Records plan to release the Moon & The Sky single stateside in November. The Maxie CD single is believed to Erasure's last chance with Maverick and if sales are good the album will finally see a US release. If sales are poor Erasure will be dropped but it is understood that Koch Records will sign the band on a three album deal. Koch Records where responsible for releasing Electronic's final album Twisted Tenderness when their label refused a US release last year and are reported to be keen to sign Erasure with future albums believed to be the forthcoming covers album, an updated 2 CD version of Pop! and a b-sides collection. However I must stress this is all only a rumour at the moment.
