Scottish band Altered Images have announced a comeback and will be releasing new music for the first time in nearly 40 years.
Singer Claire Grogan shared the news with her Twitter followers and revealed that the band have recorded a new album, which will be released in 2022.
The band has signed a deal with Cooking Vinyl, which also manages The Fratellis, Nina Nesbitt, The Darkness, Passenger and many more.
The group found success in the early 1980s when they recorded six top 40 singles in the UK and three top 30 albums between 1981 and 1983.
Their hit songs included “Happy Birthday”, “I Could Be Happy”, “See These Eyes” and “Don’t Talk to Me About Love” before the release of their last album “Bite” in 1983.
The reunion sees the full band reunite for the project, including vocalist Grogan, Bernard Butler, Bobby Bluebell, Stephen Lironi and original Altered Images bassist Johnny McElhone.

Grogan told Music Week: “I’m totally thrilled to find myself in this position, I can’t explain why it was the right time to do a new Altered Images album, but I found myself having to. and I’ve been very lucky to know so many talented people to call on. I can’t wait to spread the word!”
Since rising to fame in the band, Clare has also performed in other projects like Red Dwarf, EastEnders, Father Ted and Skins.
She has also become a British television presenter in recent years as well as a children’s novelist.
