FOLLOWING SOLD OUT NORTH AMERICAN AND UK TOURS, POP ICON ADAM ANT CELEBRATES THE 35TH ANNIVERSARY OF HIS LANDMARK “KINGS OF THE WILD FRONTIER” ALBUM WITH A NEWLY-REMASTERED ALBUM REISSUE AND AUSTRALIAN AND NEW ZEALAND TOUR.

“Kings of the Wild Frontier” introduced the Burundi Beat style of thundering, infectious, Central African drumming to a pop-music audience.  Adam captured the live sound by incorporating two drummers into his band, a musical signature that remains to this day.

In addition to remastering the classic album, Adam personally designed the deluxe box set that includes items from his extensive personal archive and a bonus DVD of the out-of-print “Ants In Japan” concert video.

The platinum album, originally released in 1980, crowned the UK Album Chart and spent more time in the top position than any other album at the time.  The album went on to achieve worldwide recognition and produced massive chart-topping singles including the classic “Antmusic”, the breakthrough tribal onslaught of “Dog Eat Dog” and the epic title track.
