Scottish twins Charlie and Craig Reid (aka The Proclaimers) burst onto the local scene back in 1988 with their international smash 'I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)'. Such was the track's reach and success that it still gets played at parties and weddings to rapturous response 24 years later.
The track was lifted from the bespectacled brothers' 1988 album 'Sunshine On Leith', which smashed the No.2 spot on the Aussie albums chart and cemented them as bonafide pop stars in amongst the likes of Kylie, Jason et al.
Six albums down the track, the boys are back in 2012 with a brand new LP entitled 'Like Comedy'. And said new album will be getting a local release through Shock Records in mid-May.
Digital as well as physical standard and deluxe versions of the new LP will drop here, the latter housed in a double disc digipak containing 'The Proclaimers Live At The SECC Glasgow, November 2009'.
Look for 'Like Comedy' in Australian stores from Friday May 11.
