Tears For Fears

Band, *1981 GB
Rock, Electronic and Pop
A.k.a. Curt Smith, Roland Orzabal, Manny Elias, Ian Stanley Johnny Panic And The Bible Of Dreams

UK rock-pop group formed in 1981 by Curt Smith (b. 24 June 1961) and Roland Orzabal (b. 22 August 1961). After three platinum albums and a string of hit singles, the duo split in 1991. Orzabal continued under the band name, releasing the albums 'Elemental' (1993) and 'Raoul and the Kings of Spain' (1995), while Smith moved to the US and began a solo career. In 2000, the pair reestablished contact and started working together again on new material. A new album, 'Everybody Loves A Happy Ending', was released in 2004.
