An acoustic journey through 21 years of The Alarm


Mike Peters led The Alarm throughout the world to 14 Top 50 singles, six successful albums, packed out venues, critical acclaim, and most importantly, a loyal following...

The Alarm began in the early 80's and scored their first chart hit with the rousing '68 Guns' which made the Top 20 in September 1983. 'Where Were you Hiding When the Storm Broke' was another chart success before the release of their debut LP, 'Declaration', which went Top Five in its first week of release.

The Alarm's second album, 'Strength' (this title track became The Alarm's first U.S. Top 40 hit) spawned Mike Peters' autobiographical 'Spirit of '76'. At this time, The Alarm also headlined their own now legendary 'Spirit of 86' Concert which was performed to an audience of 26,000 fans at UCLA and screened live around the world by MTV. The Alarm's third album 'Eye of the Hurricane' sported the hook-laden international hit, 'Rain in the Summertime'. A series of world tours (including a critically acclaimed 2-month outing with Bob Dylan, during which time Mike Peters dueted with Dylan on the encores), solidified The Alarm's reputation for all-out live shows and culminated in the band's first ever collection of live songs, the 'Electric Folklore' EP. 'Change', The Alarm's fourth album proved to be a hit on both sides of the Atlantic, with 'A New South Wales' reaching the Top 40 in the UK and the bluesy 'Sold Me Down the River' becoming a U.S. Number 1 Rock Hit. The touring continued and at a sellout concert in New York City, The Alarm were joined on stage by Neil Young .

After the release of the Raw album and World Tour in 1991, Mike Peters decided to take a sabbatical from The Alarm. He spent two years writing songs in a converted chapel in Wales, a period of quarantine which produced the backbone of the songs presented on Mike's debut solo Top 5 UK album, 'Breathe' in 1994.

The nineties has spearheaded the emergence of Mike Peters solo' career with his legendary acoustic and electric performances across Europe and the USA. The release of Mike's second album, 'Feel Free' in 1996 was born out of Mike's personal brush with and eventual recovery from cancer. The constant global touring which has followed for Mike and his band has contributed to the continuing success of the MPO (Mike's fanbase office based in North Wales) which now totals a membership of over 10,000 fans.

1999 saw the successful release of Mike's critically acclaimed 'Rise' album which spawned a relationship with Cult guitarist, Billy Duffy, who, after a chance meeting at the Phoenix Festival, UK, agreed to play guitar on two tracks from the Rise album. The collaboration proved to be so successful that the two agreed to make their partnership more permanent and so 'Coloursound' was born, featuring The Mission's Craig Adams on bass and Stiff Little Fingers' drummer, Steve Grantley on drums.
