Dead Or Alive have sold more than 30 million albums and 25 million singles worldwide and gave Stock Aitken Waterman their first #1 single. Their first three albums, which the band wrote, all reached the UK Top 30, with ‘Youthquake’ reaching the Top 10.
In the 1980s, they charted seven unique singles in the UK Top 40, with two further re-entries this century, with a remix and original version of ‘You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)’.
Respected US magazine Billboard, ranked them in their all-time Top 100 most successful ‘dance artists’ chart.
“Fragile” is the band’s seventh and final studio album and was only released in Japan in 2000 - reaching #45 on the Oricon Album Chart - until a re-worked version was included within the ‘Sophisticated Boom Box MMXVI’ box set in 2016.
Their first and only single from the album, ‘Hit And Run Lover’, reached #2 on the Oricon Singles Chart in Japan.
This special 20th Anniversary Edition of “Fragile” is the first time that the album has been commercially released on vinyl in its original configuration, with original playing durations and will be pressed on 180g heavyweight red colour vinyl. Release date: July 31.
