The Almighty re-releases on way
The Almighty will re-release their first two albums in September, with another batch due early next year.
And the band haven’t entirely given up on plans to write new music, and possibly even tour.
Ricky Warwick, now fronting Black Star Riders, co-formed the Scottish-based outfit in 1988. They split in 1996, then again in 2002 after a reunion.
During their first stint they released five acclaimed studio albums: Blood, Fire And Love, Soul Destruction, Powertrippin’, Crank and Just Add Life. They later added a self-titled record in 2000 and finally Pyscho-Narco in 2001.
The first two will see the light of day on September 30 under the title Re-Fuckin’-Issues. Each album will come complete with bonus material including additional tracks, liner notes and commentary.
Warwick says: “We are all very excited to finally have The Almighty releases available again. It’s been 25 years and this music deserves to be heard. It’s kind of like seeing an old friend again and it’s like the years never passed!”
Earlier this year he revealed the band were discussing the possibility of reuniting in some form, but recently said they hadn’t been able to agree a deal.
Meanwhile, Warwick is currently touring the UK delivering an acoustic set, alongside Terrorvision’s Tony Wright and Milton ‘Milly’ Evans, who are billed as Acoustic TV.
