The Answer Debut Music Video For Second Single From ‘Revival’
January 18, 2012
The Answer have released a music video for the song “Nowhere Freeway”, the second single taken from band’s new album ‘Revival’, featuring a duet with Saint Jude vocalist Lynne Jackaman.
The Irish band’s third effort ‘Revival’ was produced by Grammy-nominated Chris ‘Frenchie’ Smith and mixed by Chris Sheldon. The album was released in Europe on October 3rd 2011. The initial run of the album was a limited edition deluxe format with 24-page booklet and band sleeve-notes, plus an 11-track second disc containing previously unreleased studio, acoustic, demo and cover material.
Founded in Northern Ireland in 2000, The Answer have spent the last decade proving their rock ‘n’ roll credentials and making the kind of life-affirming, eardrum-threatening music that separates the truly great from the merely adequate.
After a few self-financed, low-key releases, the band emerged into the mainstream spotlight in 2005 when their debut single “Keep Believin'” became the subject of great critical acclaim and led The Answer to the ‘Best New Band’ award at that year’s Classic Rock Awards. The following year, this young band consolidated that early promise with ‘Rise’, a debut album that received universally great reviews and backed up their burgeoning reputation with fistfuls of gloriously anthemic songs like “Under The Sky”, “Into The Gutter” and “Come Follow Me” that delighted everyone from cantankerous classic rock fans to bright-eyed teenagers with a penchant for balls-out rock ‘n’ roll. ‘Rise’ went on to sell over 125,000 copies worldwide, a startling achievement that ensured that when the band released their second album, the mighty ‘Everyday Demons’, three years later, the world was more than ready to embrace The Answer on an even greater scale.
The end result of their fearsome reputation, both as an astonishing live band and as rock’s brightest hopes, was a two-year stint as chief support to AC/DC, which took them around the world and into some of the biggest venues on the planet.
