Afterwards the band signed a deal with A&M records. Their 1984 debut album ‘Stand Back’ was a national success, providing the top 40 hit ‘Meet Me In The Middle’. In the same year they toured with Chris de Burgh. Upon returning back, they worked on their second album ‘The Lines Are Open’ which was released in 1985, produced by David Tyson and mixed by Bob Rock. The singles ‘Heart Of The City’, ‘Talk Talk’ and ‘Chains’ received reasonable airplay in Canada, but pressures from label and management for a breakout hit were causing trouble within the band. After a cross-Canada tour, the group quit at the end of 1986.
In 1995, a CD-Compilation ‘Talk Talk - The Best Of The Arrows’ was released through the German independent label ‘Long Island’ and contained the majority of tracks from their first two albums. So far this has been the only release of Arrows material on CD, apart from the European release ‘The Lines Are Open’.
In 2011, the German label ‘YESTERROCK’ released Arrows’ debut album ‘Stand Back’ for the first time on CD. ‘The Lines Are Open” is now re-released through ‘TMC’ in cooperation with ROCK DISTRIBUTION TORONTO and ‘YESTERROCK’.
