Iva Davies will hit the road soon for the ‘Primitive Colours’ tour to showcase the two albums and today spoke of the new releases.

“Today is an exciting day for me and the band with the Anniversary and repackaged versions of all of the ICEHOUSE catalogue now being available in retail for the first time in several years and on iTunes worldwide for the first time ever,” he said in a statement.

“We had a great group of people working with us to whom I’d like to say a special thanks: Aaron and Joanna at Debaser have done an incredible job in revising and adding to the artwork for all the albums; Steve Smart has done wonders in remastering all the albums which has brought greater clarity to the original recordings than I could have hoped for; Dave Gross and his team are responsible for restoring and revising the Live From Germany concert and television footage which is included on the DVD accompanying Primitive Man, while Johan Earl put in a lot of time and effort on the two concerts which are on the Man of Colours DVD – Live From The Ritz and Live In Melbourne. And a very special thanks to Elaine Beckett and the team at Trackdown for all their help, guidance and technical expertise as we tried to turn old (and sometimes decaying) 20th Century tapes into items which could be seen and heard with current technology”.

“Going through all the albums again, as well as the various bits of footage, has brought back memories of many times, places and people – to hear and see all the great musicians who have been in ICEHOUSE at one time or another lets me know how privileged I’ve been to work with such talented people”.

“And, of course, I’m still working with wonderful musicians today as everyone will see who buys a ticket next week to one of Primitive Colours shows will see”.

“I hope you all enjoy re-engaging with the music of ICEHOUSE and I look forward to seeing you on the road”.
