Welsh alt-rock group The Alarm will reissue and expand their earliest recordings from the first four years of their discography next month.

Eponymous 1981-1983 and Declaration 1984-1985 will hit stores March 16th. Previously released in single-disc form by the group’s Twenty First Century label in 2000, these 2CD or 2LP releases paint an even clearer, more definitive picture of this era of Mike Peters and company, including their signing to I.R.S. Records and highest-charting single release (1983’s “Sixty Eight Guns,” a U.K. Top 20 hit).

The band’s first recorded and released works as The Alarm feature on Eponymous 1981-1983, offering all their single sides from this period, an assortment of live non-LP material and five demos. From there, Declaration 1984-1985 expands the band’s first studio album with a bonus disc of B-sides and four previously unreleased outtakes.
