The Answer Working On ‘New Horizon’ Follow-Up

September 23, 2014

The Answer have begun work on their fifth studio album with producer Will Maya, which will be the follow-up to 2013’s ‘New Horizon’.

“I think it’s time for another album don’t you?,” says vocalist Cormac Neeson. “That’s right folks… album number five is well under way and sounding like our best yet of course. We decided we wanted to do away with any unnecessary distractions that might get in the way of the creative process so we’ve relocated to sunny Spain for a month where the weather’s mighty fine and the beer is mighty cold. I know it sounds like a hard life but we’ll get through it somehow.”

“We’ve teamed up with our long time producer and friend Will Maya,” Neeson continues. “Will has worked with The Answer from the beginning and we’re very happy to have the old gang together. Maybe Paul (Mahon)’s guitar might stay in tune on this record. No promises but who knows. Keep your eyes on our Facebook and Twitter feeds for regular updates and lively Irish banter fresh from the studio. In all seriousness, this music of ours is sounding great and we think you’re gonna love it just as much as us.”

Keeping the beacon of Irish rock music well and truly alight, The Answer have consistently delivered commercial and critically acclaimed albums. The band have toured the world extensively, proving themselves to be an incendiary live act — spending almost two years as main support to AC/DC and playing to over two million people, performing festivals across the globe and also supporting the likes of The Rolling Stones, Whitesnake and Wolfmother as well as countless headline tours.

Since their third studio album ‘Revival’ in late 2011, the band instigated a major shakeup in their circumstances and with new management, live booking agents and with new record label on board, late 2012 saw them enter the studio with Little Angels vocalist Toby Jepson at the production helm. The resulting album, ‘New Horizon’, was their first with Napalm Records and featured mixes from rock icon Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Metallica).
