At the same time, the band will re-release their first seven albums (one of which is live). The Stranglers were established in 1974 as a punk band by the name: "The Guildford Stranglers." Later, the band changed their style to alternative rock, and over the years, they became one of the most influential rock ensembles from Britain. The band's first three albums came out at a fast pace with only a year between each of them, and included hits like "Peaches" and "No More Heroes." Like the fantasies of any band in its early days, the critics did not really connect to the psychedelic keys and the drummer's jazz feel, but for the fans the situation was completely different. The band continued to release hits, and in the 80s they duplicated their success with winning hits like "Golden Brown" and "Always The Sun." The Strangers have captured their anti-establishment image for many years, but in recent years their members have merged into the establishment, and even appeared on BBC at the Royal Albert Hall.
Formed in Blackpool Lancashire, this blues rock/progressive rock group has evolved quite a bit since 1967. Back in the ’70s, they sold an estimated 60 million albums worldwide and were described by Rolling Stone as, "One of the most commercially successful and eccentric progressive rock bands.” Though Anderson claimed Jethro Tull was done in 2014, he announced a new album to commemorate the 50th anniversary of their first album, scheduled to come out March 2019. Anderson is the only remaining member continuing to tour, but this fall we’re sure he’ll bring back some rocking nostalgia of his long cemented music legacy.
