We are pleased to announce that on Friday June 4th 2021, The Alarm will release a brand new double LP and CD edition of History Repeating 1981 – 2021 that will be available from all retail record stores and digital outlets around the world.
Here at thealarm.com we have a special 300 copy edition version of the History Repeating 1981 – 2021 Double LP that includes a specially commissioned 7″ single featuring Unsafe Building and Up For Murder (this edition is exclusive to the alarm.com).
The 300 edition LP contains 27 tracks (29 with single), which for the first time ever, includes all of The Alarm’s biggest singles and greatest songs. (N.B. The single is not available with the retail version).
The track listings are currently being kept secret until closer to the release date, save to say that this special double LP edition of History Repeating features only two of the tracks found on the History Repeating 4 x LP Box Set (which documents a more alternative history of the Alarm timeline), so that fans who collect both editions will ultimately have 12 x sides of Alarm vinyl and 71 Alarm tracks to play on their record players.
The official track-listings will be revealed close to release day starting on May 22nd, when Mike Peters begins his epic 177 mile Love Hope Strength hike following OFFA’s DYKE from Rhyl in North Wales to Cardiff in the South, linking the site of the first ever Alarm sh0w at the Royal Victoria Hotel in Prestatyn (5th June 1981), to St. David’s Hall in Cardiff when the future of The Alarm will continue on January 21st 2022 with the SOLD OUT 40th Anniversary Celebration Concert.
Along the way, Mike Peters will be unveiling the epic track listing of the History Repeating album and performing lots of ‘Live’ virtual acoustic shows through www.thealarmcentral.com, the first of which will be from Rhyl Town Hall on March 22nd, continuing through everyday of the hike, finishing with a grand finale acoustic concert on June 5th from a secret location in Cardiff.
