A daring mix of amped-up acoustics, harmonica and vocals, The Alarm has sounded around the world via songs like 1983’s The Stand & Sixty Eight Guns.
Following the release of Declaration & Strength, The Alarm headlined the Spirit Of ’86 concert beamed around the planet via a first live global satellite broadcast. Eye Of The Hurricane, Change & Raw followed but the demands of the road were the heart of a very public swan song for the original members in 1991.
The current line up re-emerged in '04 through the Poppy Fields 'fake band' escapade & the 45 RPM single would take them back into the charts along with 5 album collection - In The Poppy Fields. Soon after, Mike Peters was diagnosed with cancer, forcing the band into playing select shows dictated by the chemotherapy regime that has kept him alive ever since. In '06, normal service was resumed and The Alarm released Under Attack followed by an 8 EP Counter Attack Collection that gave birth to Guerilla Tactics (2008) & Direct Action (2010). In 2013, the band recorded the Vinyl Movie Soundtrack album.
The band’s 30th Anniversary decade is represented through new recordings of all the early albums & songs via The Sound and The Fury / Declaration 2014. Strength 2015 was honoured with The Alarm backed by an orchestra at the Poppies Falling From the Sky concert, which also witnessed the premiere of 2017 Alarm / Mike Peters movie – Man In The Camo Jacket.
A new album and world tour is set for 2018.
