Mike Peters and The Alarm will make a return visit to perform at the Isle Of Wight Festival this June 2017 having played once before back in 2010. (Mike Peters was also the guest lead singer for Big Country at their two memorable main stage performances of 2011 and 2012).
2017 is a year that will also see the release of two brand new albums entitled BLOOD RED and VIRAL BLACK in 2017. The first release BLOOD RED, will coincide with the band’s headline UK tour this May and the second VIRAL BLACK will follow in September upon the group’s return from touring the USA.
Both albums were recorded with producer George Williams (who produced 2006’s Under Attack) and explore themes from two perspectives with the internal gaze of BLOOD RED followed by the outward expression of VIRAL BLACK.
At the height of the 1980’s, The Alarm headlined their own 'Spirit of '86 Concert' before 26,000 fans in Los Angeles, transmitted around the world to millions via MTV's first ever live global satellite broadcast.
In the summer of 1991, the demands of the road were at the heart of a very public swan song for the original members at London's Brixton Academy before the current line up emerged from the wreckage in 2000 causing worldwide controversy in 2004 through The Poppy Fields 'fake band' escapade.
The true identity of The Alarm was eventually revealed on Top Of The Pops and instantly triggered a rush of global media exposure, culminating in a US TV appearance on the CBS Headline News program fronted by Dan Rather.
Throughout the course of his musical career, Mike Peters has travelled from relapse to remission and back, searching out ways that allow his group’s legacy to continue via solo acoustic, one man and full band Alarm experiences. A unique story that has now attracted the BBC cameras to come and film Mike and The Alarm in concert at their very own 25th Anniversary Gathering in North Wales on February 3rd and 4th for Broadcast on National TV this March 2017.
