Whitesnake Unveils ‘Forevermore’ Artwork
December 22, 2010
Hard rock legends Whitesnake have announced that ‘Forevermore’ will be the title of the band’s upcoming album — due for release in March 2011 through Frontiers Records.
In regards to the album’s title Whitesnake vocalist David Coverdale sates, “it’s ONE word… ‘Forevermore’. I can’t wait til you hear the song. Don’t forget, tis ONE word… otherwise it sounds like a bleedin’ Valentines Day card… which it ain’t!”
In late August Whitesnake announced the addition of bassist Michael Devin, who had been playing with Lynch Mob with new Whitesnake drummer Brian Tichy. This completes the new Whitesnake line-up and Michael will be featured on their new album, alongside guitarists Doug Aldrich and Reb Beach, and keyboardist Timothy Drury.
“As always, we want to take it to the next level,” states Coverdale. “I feel that with the last album we achieved a strong Whitesnake ‘cocktail’ that comfortably embraced & mixed all the previous musical aspects & styles of the band’s history, while taking our identity a little further… all on one album…”
Born in 1977, Whitesnake have been among the most influential representatives of the their genre, having produced numerous rock music classics such as ‘Here I Go Again’, ‘Is This Love’, ‘Still Of The Night’, ‘Fool For Your Loving’, ‘Ain’t No Love In The Heart Of The City’ or ‘Walking In The Shadows Of The Blues’.
Coverdale said the production team for the new album will most likely be the infamous Brutal Brothers, or Los Bros Brutalos, who handled the recording of “Good To Be Bad”. “The new songs are in the very familiar and recognizable Whitesnake territory of soulful, bluesy, melodic power rock, with a couple of ballads thrown in for good measure… It can’t be a Whitesnake album without ballads, mate!”
Whitesnake have also announced a UK tour for June 2011 — the dates are as follows:
June 13 Newcastle City Hall
June 14 Glasgow Clyde Auditorium
June 16 Wolverhampton Civic Hall
June 17 Manchester O2 Apollo
June 19 Bournemouth International Centre
June 20 London HMV Hammersmith Apollo
