GREAT WHITE To Release New Album “RISING” on Shrapnel Records April 21st

Multi-Platinum rock band Great White, celebrated the 25th anniversary of the band’s inception with the release of BACK TO THE RHYTHM in 2006. The band’s new record RISING is a no holds barred, all original LP that is among their strongest releases to date. The bands new CD is their second studio recording in 10 years and features 11 brilliant new compositions penned by the band.

An international phenomenon, Great White has been reported to have sold in excess of 10 million units internationally, including the double platinum “…Twice Shy,” which spawned the Grammy-nominated Ian Hunter cover of “Once Bitten, Twice Shy.” With other hits such as “Rock Me,” “Face The Day” and “Save Your Love” cranked up around the world, Great White established themselves to the masses as a classic rock band with memorable riffs, steeped in the hallowed tradition of blues and rock and roll.

Eschewing an 80’s production in favor of a retro/modern one, long-time band producer and keyboardist Michael Lardie captures the essence of Great White with a sound that has more in common with the Rolling Stones, Aerosmith and Led Zeppelin than that of their contemporaries. Unlike many bands of the era that are making new records, Great White consists of nearly all original members. The guitar and vocal team of Jack Russell and Mark Kendall are stronger than ever on this explosive new CD and have a unique synergy, not unlike Plant/Page, Tyler/Perry or Jagger/Richards.
