Irish rockers The Answer will release their latest studio album in September 2011 via Spinefarm Records/Universal.
Titled Revival and produced by the Grammy-nominated Chris "Frenchie" Smith, with mixing handled by Chris Sheldon, this is the third studio album released by the Downpatrick quartet since first coming together a decade ago.
Vocalist Cormac Neeson comments: "The studio we used was on a ranch in the middle of a pecan orchard near El Paso, next to the Mexican border - a wonderful place for creating music, with that whole Wild West vibe, and 'Frenchie' was always encouraging us to dream that bit bigger and rock that bit harder. We had a lot of fun, and the experience was a positive one from start to finish..."
"Tonight", the new video from The Answer can now be viewed at this location. The clip features never-before-seen backstage footage of the band's life on the road with AC/DC. The song appears on the band's latest album "Everyday Deamons".
Due to ligament / tendon damage to drummer James Heatleys left hand, The Answer regret to announce the postponement their imminent UK headline club shows. The affected shows are as follows:
Apr 20th - Belfast Mandela Hall
Apr 22nd - Nottingham Rescue Rooms
Apr 24th - Glasgow Grand Central
Rescheduled Dates Are (All Tickets Will Be Valid For The New Dates):
June29th - Belfast Mandela Hall
July 2nd - Glasgow Grand Central
July 3rd - Nottingham Rescue Rooms
Says singer Cormac Neeson, "We are bitterly disappointed to have to postpone our UK headline shows especially for all our fans who have been waiting so patiently for so long. We have left the decision to the absolute last minute in the hope that the medical problem with our drummer James might get better. Unfortunately his hand is swollen and he is in immense pain. He has struggled with pain-killers to get through the recent 30 minute support sets on the AC/DC tour and whilst he can perform a short support set, it is a medical impossibility for him to perform a full one hour and fifteen minute headline set at present.
Irish rockers The Answer premiered exclusively through Spin.com, an MP3 for the song "Demon Eyes", the opening cut from their forthcoming second full-length album, 'Everyday Demons'.
