You think rock ‘n’ roll is dead? Allow me to introduce The Answer.

Formed in 2000, the band are a hard rock and blues rock band, with members from both Newcastle and Northern Ireland. They received favourable recognition from “Classic Rock” Magazine in 2005 who named “The Best New Band” of that year, just before the band released their debut album, “Rise” in 2006.

“Everyday Demons” followed in 2009 and later “Revival” in 2011 and “New Horizon” in September of last year. Support slots with Deep Purple and particularly, AC/DC on their “Black Ice” Tour introduced The Answer’s gritty rock ‘n’ roll to audiences across the globe, especially in the United States, and they lapped it up, smitten with the band.

The Answer are scheduled to kick-off a 32-date UK & European tour next month, including dates in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Oxford, Chester, Cardiff, Liverpool, Limerick and Derry. The tour coincides with the release of their forthcoming single, “New Horizon”, the title track from their latest studio effort. The band have fast become known for their electric live sets which get everyone moving, so don’t miss out!

The band are undoubtedly set to make their mark on 2014 and I guarantee they’ll be one of your new favourite bands of the next 12 months.

Tired of fluffy, clean cut pop? Get down ‘n’ dirty with The Answer!
