The band achieved their first taste of success with their third single (after "Suffer the Children" and "Pale Shelter"), "Mad World" (top 5 hit in South Africa), which reached no.3 in the UK in November 1982. Their first album, The Hurting, was released in March 1983 and included "Mad World".
Live from the show "Going to California".

Roland Orzabal and Curt Smithth met as teenagers in their home city of Bath, Somerset, in southwest England. The band's name "Tears for Fears" was inspired by Primal Therapy, developed by the American psychologist Arthur Janov, which gained tremendous publicity after John Lennon became Janov's patient in 1970.

Tears for Fears were signed to Phonogram Records, UK in 1981 by A&R manager Dave Bates. Their first single as Tears for Fears, "Suffer the Children" (produced by David Lord), was released on that label in November 1981, followed by the first edition of "Pale Shelter" (produced by Mike Howlett) in March 1982, though neither of these releases were successful.
