Upon its first release, the album spent 30 weeks in the UK top ten-album chart; a whole year in the top 30 and only left the charts 18 months later.
'Shout' became the group's fourth top five UK hit in two years and went on to top the Billboard Hot 100.
By the last months of the 1980s, it had been over four years since 'Songs From The Big Chair.' Could Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith still deliver?
The duo of Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith became a huge part of the major US chart takeover by British acts of the mid-1980s.
Deserving overdue appraisal, ‘Elemental’ found Roland Orzabal penning some of the most ambitious songs in Tears For Fears’ history.
Weezer's studio version of the evergreen Tears For Fears hit also features on their recent 'Teal Album'.
Originally released on 7 March 1983, the album peaked at No. 1 on the UK Albums Chart in its second week of release.
The '80s pop icons will be supported by post-punk five-piece White Lies and chart-topping synth-pop outfit Scritti Politti.
