Our new album “Sundowners” and new single “Oh Cherry!” is released today!
“Sundowners is a joyful explosion of restless grooves. The title track delivers hypnotic, shamanic, fire-lit beats that speak of hazy, altered-reality weekends. It’s perfectly pitched for festival crowds. This album is the sound of a band with nothing to prove to themselves or anyone else. They slot so neatly alongside the blues-rock giants that came before them.” 8/10 (Classic Rock Magazine)
“The sun may be going down but it’s not setting any time soon. An 11-track journey of discovery, with just a hint of nostalgia” – 9/10 (ERB Magazine)
Northern Irish rockers The Answer finally release their seventh and long-awaited new studio album on St. Patricks day, March 17th, 2023. Titled ‘Sundowners’, the record was produced and mixed by rising British rock producer Dan Weller (Enter Shikari, Bury Tomorrow) and will be supported by a run of album showcase performances on a 16-date UK and European date tour.
Supported by new single ‘Oh Cherry’ and a fantastic Tarantino-esque 60’s ‘mash-dancing’ lyric video, also released on March 17th, Classic Rock said of the track, “Rhythm and dust meets attitude and lust on the unashamedly libidinous Oh Cherry”.
Says lead singer Cormac Neeson, “We’ve been through a lot as a band, toured the world, made six great records we’re all proud of, and always done our best to make honest and timeless music that connects with rock and music fans in general. After six albums and a lot of road miles we felt we needed to step back from it all and reset. Whilst that wasn’t an easy decision, with retrospect it’s possibly the best decision we’ve ever made because after seven years away we all came back fired up and end result is an album we’ve been waiting to make our whole lives…full of good time rock n roll and positive energy created by four brothers who quite frankly just really missed each other. We’re back and we’re ready to bring our best album ever to you!”
The album will be released by 7Hz Productions (ADA) in UK & Europe under license from Golden Robot Records Pty. The record will be presented in several formats including a Cd Gatefold Digi sleeve, Gatefold 12” 180g black vinyl, 2 x 12” colour vinyl exclusives, a 12” fan collectible Picture Disk, Digital and various limited retail exclusive versions with HMV, Rough Trade, Crash and Assai Records.
