It’s the Return of Big Country – Here’s the New Video

Big Country

By Fred Mills

As we noted previously in this space, Big Country has returned with a new album, the first studio effort since regrouping a couple of years by way of adding The Alarm’s Mike Peters as singer (founding member and singer/guitarist Stuart Adamson tragically took his own life in 2001). Titled The Journey, it more than meets the high standards set years ago by the group, and we North American fans will have a chance to see how ably they hoist the B.C. torch in concert starting in a couple of weeks. (See the tour itinerary, below.) You will also have a chance to read the BLURT interview with Peters this week, so keep your eyes on the website, as he discloses all the details behind the band’s untimely demise and unlikely resurrection with him now part of the crucial crusade.

“You can’t replace Stuart Adamson,” Peters tells BLURT. “So when we line up on the stage at the end, I stand to the left and someone stands to the right, but that center spot is always open because that’s where Stuart resides. We always say there may look like five people on stage, but there’s really six because Stuart Adamson will always be present.”

Meanwhile, here’s the official video for the song “Hurt.” Enjoy!
