THE ALARM / MODERN ENGLISH / GENE LOVES JEZEBEL

Three ’80s-era alt-rock groups are going on a package tour this summer, headlined by anthemic Welsh group The Alarm, plus “I Melt with You” singers Modern English, and the Jay Ashton led lineup of gothy/glammy rockers Gene Loves Jezebel. (Jay’s identical twin brother Michael has his own lineup of the band as well.) The tour kicks off July 19 in Austin and includes stops in Dallas, Oklahoma City, San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Denver, St. Louis, Minneapolis, Chicago, Detroit and more, with the trek wrapping up August 29 at Asbury Lanes in Asbury Park, NJ.  Meanwhile, the Alarm play NYC shows on April 12 at Gramercy Theatre and April 13 at Irving Plaza. All dates are here. The Alarm have a new album, Sigma, out later this year and frontman Mike Peters was just honored with an MBE (Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) Award by HIs Royal Highness Prince Charles Prince of Wales at Buckingham Palace. Congrats, Mike!
