Billboard Canada FYI Bulletin: Platinum Blonde's 'Alien Shores' Goes 8X Platinum Just In Time for Tour with Billy Idol

The early MuchMusic favourites have reunited and are celebrating their renewed fame with a 13-city Canadian tour.

In five years during the mid-'80s, Platinum Blonde became the poster boys for the early MuchMusic generation. They had their own look, sound and a modest-sized catalogue that in its day sold about a million albums and singles before their career dimmed and eventually, faded to black.

In 2010, a cross-generational cover of their 1983 hit "Not In Love" by Crystal Castles with The Cure frontman Robert Smith brought them renewed relevance. The same year, they were inducted into the Music and Broadcast Industry Hall of Fame.
