Tears For Fears are one of the defining bands of the 80's who have gone on to sell over 30 million albums, spawning over 20 #1 singles.
Recording started on the group's second studio album, the seminal 'Songs From The Big Chair,' in early 1984. The band were keen to create something a little less insular than what had come before and open up the sound – bigger guitars, less reliance on sequencers and technology. Tears For Fears' willingness to do something different, to expand their musical horizons, aligned to the record label's natural desire to find a bigger audience and sell even more records, created the phenomenon that was 'Songs From The Big Chair.'
The album, which contains global mega-hits "Shout" and "Everybody Wants To Rule The World," will be celebrated across a number of formats on this 30th anniversary of a pop masterpiece.
