Like Bob Dylan’s never ending tour on speed and following the successful “New Horizon” album release and Nov 2013 tour, The Answer are set to release their new single “New Horizon” which contains cover versions of Rory Gallagher’s “Cradle Rock”, Danzig’s “Snakes Of Christ” plus two new acoustic renditions of the new tour’s namesake track “Road Less Travelled”
The five track single bundle will be released on April 7th 2014 in support of the new 32 date tour, that kicks off in Aberdeen on February 19th and runs right through until the end of March 2014.
“New Horizon sees the band at the most stripped down and intense. This is pure overdriven rock ‘n’ roll with absolutely no frills in sight. It definitely rocks!” – Kerrang, Sept 2013
“New Horizon is a blistering return to form and bulges with the kind of blues infused and euphoric hard rock that first made them stand out from the lazily retro hordes. New Horizon sounds utterly fresh and relevant today” – Metal Hammer, October 2013.
“New Horizon delivers in style and Neeson’s gravel-gargling vocals are stunning throughout” – Classic Rock 2013
With rave reviews for both the album and their latest tour, The Answer have consistently delivered commercial, critically acclaimed albums and live shows. The latest album is the band’s fourth studio offering and features production from Toby Jepson and mixes from rock icon Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Metallica) and Guillermo ‘Will’ Maya.
The band were also honoured and privileged that the late Storm Thorgerson and his team saw fit to design the artwork for the new album and Storm was working on final ideas for the album cover just before his sad passing.
The latest video for “New Horizon” was directed by Darren Lee of Maverick Renegade Productions and features the now iconic Thorgerson ‘birdman’ on an rampage of his mind through the streets of Belfast. Says lead singer Cormac Neeson, “The concept of the video was based on an altered perception of reality and the inner struggle of the mind. Our birdman has some serious issues but eventually manages to conquer his demons!”
The video for “NEW HORIZON” will premiere with Classic Rock. Click here to see it:
In addition the lead singer also added “The first part of the New Horizon tour was absolutely fantastic and we’re back in a big way. We’re really looking forward to getting out in spring 2014 to perform in some towns and cities where we haven’t been for a few years. It’s a true ‘Road Less Travelled’ tour!!
