Big Country Part Ways With Mike Peters

(Classic Rock) Big Country have announced they've split with The Alarm frontman Mike Peters after three years with him at the helm. Founding members Bruce Watson and Mark Brzezicki say they'll continue with Jamie Watson and Derek Forbes as a four-man outfit.

The late Stuart Adamson's band released ninth album The Journey earlier this year with Peters' vocals, and had toured extensively with the Welshman on board.

In a brief statement entitled "Big Country Continues" they say: "Bruce and Mark would like to thank Derek, Jamie, Mike, Tony and the estate of Stuart Adamson for the last three years. Big Country and Mike will now be parting ways. The band will continue using Stuart's original blue print as a four-piece. We wish Mike well in the future." more on this story
