Tears for Fears are an English pop/rock band formed in Bath, Somerset UK in 1981 by Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith. Founded after the dissolution of their first band, the mod-influenced Graduate, they were initially associated with the new wave synthesizer bands of the early 1980's but later branched out into mainstream rock and pop, which led to international chart success. They were part of the MTV-driven Second British Invasion of the US.

Smith and Orzabal parted company in 1991, after the release of their third platinum-selling album The Seeds of Love (1989), though Orzabal retained the Tears for Fears name throughout the remainder of the 1990's. 

The duo re-formed in 2000 and released an album of new material, Everybody Loves a Happy Ending, in 2004. 

Tears for Fears have sold over 30 million albums worldwide.

In 2017, the band toured North America with co-headliners Hall & Oates and also played in Israel, at the British Summer Time Festival in London's Hyde Park on 8 July, and at the Rock in Rio festival in Brazil on 22nd September.

In a July 2017 interview, Orzabal stated that the band had collaborated with songwriter/producer Sacha Skarbek on their new album tentatively titled The Tipping Point, and divulged several song titles from it including "My Demons", "I Love You But I'm Lost", "End of Night" and "Up Above the World".

The band performed at further UK and European festivals in Summer 2019, starting with the Hampton Court Palace Festival on 18th and 19th June, the Forest Live festival at Delamere Forest on 21st June and the Nocturne Live Concert Series at Blenheim Palace on 22nd June.

Hits include:

  • Everybody Wants to Rule The World
  • Shout
  • Head Over Heels
  • Woman in Chains
  • Sowing The Seeds of Love
