Details have now been confirmed for the Spring 2012 UK tour, which will see a welcome return to The Alhambra Theatre on Friday 2nd March, their last visit was in 2010
Scoring some 23 UK top 40 singles and 17 UK top 40 albums to date in a career spanning four decades, the Stranglers are the longest-surviving and most continuously successful band to have originated in the UK punk scene of the mid to late 1970s.
Their aggressive, no-compromise attitude identified them as one of the instigators of the UK punk rock scene that followed, their idiosyncratic approach rarely followed any single musical genre and the group went on to explore a variety of musical styles, from new wave, art rock and gothic rock through to the sophisticated pop of some of their 1980s output.
During their long career to-date, and despite many predictions to the
contrary, The Stranglers have never stopped for more than a few weeks, out living and out performing most, if not all, of their contemporaries and critics. With an astonishing 16 albums to-date, the band’s diverse body of work is almost unique in a musical world where ‘sameness’ is a rule-of-thumb.
