June 10, 2011
Northern Ireland rockers The Answer will be releasing a DVD/CD package entitled ‘412 Days Of Rock N Roll’ on June 13th. A short trailer of the DVD can be viewed below.
The DVD is a documentary that includes a 70 minute film of life on the road during the AC/DC tour and beyond, a 55 minute live set which was shot in America, Spain and Belfast, and all of the band’s previous promo videos and a new video for “Rock N Roll Outlaw”, which was edited togehter from on the road footage. The CD conatins live reordings from the tour and two new recordings, “Rock N Roll Outlaw”, which is a Rose Tattoo cover, and a new song called “Fooled Me”.
Rose Tattoo frontamn Angry Anderson had this to say about The Answer’s cover of “Rock N Roll Outlaw, “Its sacred ground for us, but hearing The Answer play it brought a lump to my throat… not only a killer version but they make it their own… well done lads, you do us proud.” The video of the ban’d Rose Tattoo cover can be viewed at this YouTube link.
The Answer are also offering fans a free download of the song “Highwater Of Hell” live in Belfast at their official website – www.theanswer.ie.
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.
