Del Amitri are set to re-release three of their classic albums ahead of their first tour in over a decade. ‘Waking Hours’, ‘Change Everything’ and ‘Twisted’ are set for a 20th January 2014 release.
Each of the bands albums have been re-mastered from the original tapes and include new sleeve notes by respected music journalist Terry Staunton (Uncut, Classic Rock, Record Collector), plus upgraded art work with many rare photos and memorabilia. Each is packaged with a second CD containing the complete collection of B-sides.
Formed in Glasgow in 1983 by singer and main songwriter Justin Currie and guitarist Iain Harvie, during their long and distinguished career Del Amitri released four Top 10 albums and a string of memorable hit singles.
Following these releases, Del Amitri will hit the road for their first tour in over a decade. With a cast of original members and even the original crew, the band will play every hit from every era of their recording career in ‘The A to Z of Us’. Justin Currie and Iain Harvie will once again be joined on stage by Andy Alston, Kris Dollimore and Ashley Soan.
