BuzzJack Music Forum _ Pop _ Dead or Alive - Fan the Flame Part 2

Posted by: tommie Aug 4 2021, 07:22 AM

Dead or Alive’s unreleased album ‘Fan the Flame (Part 2)’ is finally getting a commercial release later this year.

The LP was recorded as a follow-up to the group’s fifth album ‘Fan the Flame (Part 1), which dropped in 1990 and featured the singles Your Sweetness (Is Your Weakness), Gone 2 Long and Unhappy Birthday.

While the record remained unreleased and Dead or Alive continued releasing music with ‘Nukleopatra’ as its follow-up, the recordings have been preserved and will be released on October 22 via Demon Records.

An announcement on the band’s official Facebook group reads: “At the time of the release of ‘SBB MMXVI’ [2016], Pete Burns and Steve Coy were planning to revisit an album that they had started to record in 1990.

“Unfortunately, tragedy struck and they didn’t get the opportunity to do so. ‘Fan The Flame (Part 2) The Resurrection’ is the culmination of the work that Pete and Steve recorded over the next four years but which was never fully completed.”

The new album has eight tracks from the sessions, from which two singles will be released. The second is set to drop in September.

Marina Zacco Coy, Steve Coy’s wife, says: “Working over many months from the original multi-track tapes that have been in Steve’s archive for 30 years, these recordings have now been lovingly and painstakingly pieced together.

“The album has been especially planned for release on the eve of the 5th Anniversary of Pete leaving us.”

Lead single Tonight… will be released digitally on August 20.

The album will be released on 2CD A5 mediabook and 2LP translucent orange colour vinyl, featuring extended versions of both singles and instrumentals of all ten vocal tracks.

In addition to a digital release, a special 1LP clear vinyl edition contains the eight-track album and is housed in an alternate sleeve.

Pre-order begins August 18.

It's a nice tribute release, it prob wont be much if a commercial success but really nice for the hardcore fans.
