80’s Icons, Cutting Crew return with New Orchestral album!

With a sound that helped define the 1980’s music scene and a presence
amongst popular culture which has seen them appear across TV, film and video
games, Cutting Crew return with a stellar new album, “Ransomed Healed
Restored Forgiven”
featuring their best-loved songs recreated in a completely
new style. Now with the added emotion and power of a full philharmonic
orchestra, vocalist, Nick Van Eede and long-time Cutting Crew guitarist,
Gareth Moulton, look to both their die-hard fanbase and new generations
of 80’s acolytes to enjoy tracks which just refuse to get old!

The Grammy-nominated rock band were formed in England in 1985 by
ever-present singer and guitarist, Nick Van Eede withoriginal
guitarist, writer and fellow-conspirator from Canada, Kevin MacMichael,
Literally within months, the band signed with Siren Records/Virgin on the
strength of their melody-rich demos alone.

Cutting Crew, becoming a foursome in 1986, entered the studio the same year to
record the multi-million selling debut Broadcast album, one year before “(I Just) Died
in Your Arms
” exploded and made them
stars at home and in the USA where it hit the number one spot in the charts and
has so far garnered 5 million plays on the radio in that country alone!

has since become something of a popular culture icon, finding its way into
films such as Hot Tub Time Machine; smash-hit TV series as varied as Stranger
and Ash Vs Evil Dead and video games such as Grand Theft
Auto: Vice City
. “I’ve Been in Love Before” and “One
for the Mockingbird
” also enjoyed massive worldwide radio play,
reaching the Top 10 and Top 20 Billboard singles charts respectively and the
band began their love affair for touring with worldwide stops as opening act
for such groups as The Bangles, Starship and Huey Lewis & the News, as well as their own sell-out
headline shows.

Cutting Crew released an award-winning sophomore album, The
, in 1989 and a third in 1992,
Compus Mentus. Sadly, after the
death of his friend and founder member Kevin, there was an obviously long
silence but Nick eventually chose to revive the band the following decade,
featuring a radically different line-up, releasing the edgy Grinning
recorded in Kevin’shometown in Nova
Scotia in 2006 and the remarkable Add
to Favourites
in 2015.

The band continues to tour the world to
rapturous receptions, with very recent visits to Mexico, Canada, Australia and
Japan reinforcing their global popularity. Released this Spring, “Ransomed
Healed Restored Forgiven
” is a welcome reminder of a band who have always
delivered beautiful, classy anthems for the past 4 decades.
