The Alarm 'Sigma' LP
Pre-order. Due 28th June.
Sigma acts as the sequel to 2018’s critically acclaimed Equals release and features musical contributions from original Alarm guitarist Dave Sharp and Billy Duffy from The Cult.
The album includes the single “Brighter Than The Sun” and as Mike Peters articulates “is a lyric that tries to encapsulate how it feels when someone you love has survived an immense ordeal and come through to the other side brighter, stronger and more capable than before”. To find strength through ad- versity is a capability we all have inside of us should we choose to call upon it. The accompanying video tries to reflect this kind of stimulus and to try and capture the kind of solar power that emanates from within, the blinding force that stimulates life and everything positive that revolves around it.
Early in 2019 Mike Peters from The Alarm was awarded with an MBE by His Royal Highness Prince Charles Prince of Wales at Buckingham Palace for his services to charity having raised thousands for cancer care projects in the UK and abroad and dedicating his life to giving hope for families affected by cancer
