"The Alarm have announced details of their first album of new material in eight years. The follow-up to 2010’s Direct Action is titled Equals and it will launch on June 29 via The Twenty First Century Recording Company. Equals was written after frontman Mike Peters was diagnosed with a rare form of leukaemia in 2005. After an initial recovery, he suffered a relapse in 2015, and, shortly after his diagnosis, his wife Jules – who plays piano and provides backing vocals in the band – discovered she had breast cancer...The album was produced by George Williams and features Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros drummer Smiley and guitarist James Stevenson, while The Cult guitarist Billy Duffy guests on the track Coming Backwards..." - Louder
