Veteran Welsh Rock Act The Alarm Announce Triple-Bill North American Summer Tour

(CelebrityAccess) – Veteran Welsh rockers The Alarm have today (Feb. 22) announced a triple-bill North American summer tour with fellow 1980s alt-rock veterans Modern English and Gene Loves Jezebel’s Jay Aston.

The 30-plus date Sigma LXXXV Tour is slated to kick off on July 19 at 3Ten Live in Austin, Texas, and will make stops in San Diego, Seattle, Chicago and Cleveland before wrapping up on August 29 at Asbury Lanes in Asbury Park, N.J.

Commenting on the forthcoming tour, Alarm singer Mike Peters in a statement: “The Sigma Tour will bring out the best that The Alarm has to offer in the 21st Century, and along with our friends Modern English and Jay Aston’s Gene Loves Jezebel, we look forward to taking part in an event that will hopefully, live long in the memory for all our fans. Fans can expect collaboration, moments of reflection, camaraderie and also the unexpected… Each show will be presented by an in-house MC / DJ and play host to intimate pre-show events that will connect fans to the musicians in a setting away from the spotlight.”

Gene Loves Jezebel’s Aston added, “We are so excited to be touring the U.S. with our dear friends The Alarm & Modern English. We all go way back back of course. I remember The Alarm & Gene Loves Jezebel regularly playing different nights at the legendary RockGarden in Covent Garden and as a fellow Welshman, I always kept an eye on their incredible progress. We opened for Modern English early on in our career & often bumped into Rob & the lads at our label (Beggars Banquet) in London. Always great fun to see them… It’s actually amazing that we haven’t toured together before!”

The Alarm will also release a remastered version of their classic 1985 album Strength on March 15, followed by a new album, Sigma, on June 28. You can purchase tickets for the tour here.
