THE ANSWER Revival: Deluxe Edition - 2011 UK comeback album from Irish Hard Rockers, ltd. 2-CD edition
Format: CD Condition: New Year of Release: 2011 Cat. No.: SPINE781658 Label: Spinefarm
Irish rockers THE ANSWER will release their third studio album, 'Revival', in September via Spinefarm Records/Universal. The CD was produced by Chris "Frenchie" Smith and mixed by Chris Sheldon.
Commented singer Cormac Neeson: "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."
To coincide with the new album release, THE ANSWER has announced its first U.K. tour since December 2009; the band spent the previous 18 months on the road with AC/DC on the latter's record-breaking "Black Ice" world tour — the full story of which has been documented on THE ANSWER's recently released DVD/CD set, '412 Days Of Rock 'N' Roll', also available via Spinefarm Records.
Continued Cormac: "THE ANSWER are back, and our mission is to revive rock 'n' roll from the grassroots up! We had two great years playing in some of the biggest venues in the world, but this time around, on the first leg of our 'Revival' tour, we're going back to the sweaty, intimate venues where it all began. We've missed the intensity of being able to look our fans straight in the eye, and to have a beer with them after the show. We've got an entire album's worth of new material, and we're excited - bring it on!"
