Big Country reveal reissues

Big Country will release remastered and expanded versions of The Seer, No Place Like Home and Peace In Our Time next week.

The band, who were fronted by the late Stuart Adamson until his death in 2001, will reissue the three recordings on August 3.

Each album has been remastered and expanded to include B-sides, remixes, demos and previously unreleased tracks.

Adamson committed suicide in 2001 aged 43 but the band have continued, with their most recent release being 2013’s The Journey, featuring The Alarm’s Mike Peters on vocal duties. Peters has since left the band, with English singer Simon Hough now in place as permanent frontman.

Earlier this year, Classic Rock talked to the surviving members of Big Country about their music and the death of Adamson.

The band take to the road this month to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their 2nd album, Steeltown.
