Originally released for a limited period as ‘WAЯ’ in February 2021, this is the Alarm’s classic lockdown anti-war themed album that received outstanding reviews from all corners of the media.

DAILY MIRROR – “Big Tunes, huge choruses and buckets of passion.”
CLASSIC ROCK – “Bursting with heart.”
SCOTTISH MUSIC NETWORK – “A masterpiece.”
CNN – “The Alarm capture zeitgeist on new album.”
YORKSHIRE TIMES – “The Alarm recapture the hunger…..if The Clash had still been together in 2021…… chances are, they would sound something like this.”
SUBBA CULTCHA – “epic – career-best songs.”
ROCK AND ROLL TRUTH – “A masterwork.”
DAILY EXPRESS – “The 68 Guns boys deliver…..”
AMERICAN SONGWRITER – “Triumphant.”
SPIN – “Play it Loud… anyway, anyhow, anywhere.”

Since it’s original flash release on limited hand cut vinyl and custom CD-R in February 2021, demand for an official vinyl / CD press has been phenomenal. The album was made ‘dark’ and subsequently deleted at the beginning of 2022 and will now be released officially on 17th June 2022.

“The original songs and recordings took us all by surprise”, says Mike Peters. “Written and recorded in just 50 days, the album far exceeded expectation, especially when the glowing reviews started coming in thick and fast. Once finished, my original intention was to delete the album and burn the master tapes, but I’m so glad I was talked down by the team. From June 17th 2020 the album will be re-cast as Omega and made available for everyone to listen to and enjoy. I’m very proud of this record, it not only captures a global moment in time but also signals a way forward for The Alarm as we all face up to the new future.”

A limited edition DVD of The Alarm Director’s Cut film – ’50 Days in Lockdown’ that documents the making of Omega and performances from the legendary Rockfield Recording Studios is also being made available exclusively as part of the Omega Deluxe Edition.

For the digital stream platforms, Omega features a brand new George Williams’ remix (which sounds amazing!), and is also available exclusively on CD in the Omega Deluxe Edition which is limited to 300 copies. The new mix of Omega has also been produced as a Dolby Atmos version which will be available via digital platforms such as iTunes which support this groundbreaking listening experience.

“The Dolby Atmos mix of Omega puts The Alarm firmly on the frontline of acts who are pushing the audio boundary and exploring the musical possibilities that the Dolby Atmos platform can deliver,” continues Mike. “We broke a lot of new ground with the writing and recording of the original sessions and now as Omega we can let the album be heard far and wide and in a whole new way.”

What is Dolby Atmos?

Dolby Atmos enhances the entertainment you love across all of your devices. It goes beyond ordinary listening by transporting you with the breakthrough spatial sound experience that draws you in deeper, so you hear and feel more.

OMEGA by The Alarm will be officially released on June 17th 2022.
