This November / December, The Alarm will follow up their 18 date nationwide tour as special guests of The Stranglers with a series of select headline dates throughout the UK, beginning with a live performance at the Glasgow Garage on Saturday November 26th 2016
Glasgow in Scotland, is the first date to be announced and tickets are on sale now.
The Alarm of 2016 is a versatile modern assembly of musicians beginning and ending with founder member and lead singer Mike Peters and featuring long time keyboard player Mark Taylor with James Stevenson on guitar, Craig Adams (Bass), and Joe Strummer and The Mescalero’s former sticksman Smiley on drums. NB: Paul Davies (the drummer who performed with the band on many shows during the ‘Release The Pressure’ tour) will be sitting in for Smiley on November 26th.
The last two years has seen a resurgence of interest in all things ‘Alarm’ following lead singer Mike Peters unique one man band presentation of the groups electro-acoustic origins. A remodelling of debut album ‘Declaration’ in 2014 was followed by a second reinterpretation of 1985’s ‘Strength’ a year later that resulted in an 18 date sell out UK tour and six night stand at the Iridium on Broadway, New York as well as dates in Japan and Australia.
In October 2015, Mike Peters and The Alarm performed a homecoming concert to a full house at Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff with the Welsh Pops Symphony Orchestra and 2 choirs for back up. The concert film ‘Poppies Falling From The Sky’ has just had its world premiere screening and is scheduled for release on CD, DVD and LP this summer.
