The Pacific Age

The Pacific Age

The Pacific Age is an album by Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, released in 1986. "(Forever) Live and Die" became the group's third hit single in the US and returned the group to the top 20 in the UK, peaking at #11, but the album sold poorly in both countries.

The Pacific Age was Stephen Hague's second album as producer. He would go on to achieve success with groups such as Erasure, Pet Shop Boys and New Order. Graham Weir and Neil Weir were elevated to full members for the album, they had been involved with the group since the rerecording of "Julia's Song" in 1984 for the "Talking Loud and Clear" single.
