Northern Irish rockers The Answer finally released their 7th and long-awaited new studio album on St. Patricks day, (today). 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 today,  Classic Rock said of the track, “Rhythm and dust meets attitude and lust on the unashamedly libidinous Oh Cherry”. Watch the video below.

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 has been released by Golden Robot Records and by licensee 7Hz Productions (ADA) in the UK & Europe with limited edition vinyl to be accompany the release. 

Undeniably, The Answer have achieved a great deal in their career to be proud of.

Emerging into the rock world spotlight in 2005, their debut single “Keep Believin’” became the subject of critical acclaim and led The Answer to the ‘Best New Band’ award at that year’s Classic Rock Awards. The following year, the young band consolidated that early promise with “Rise”, a debut album that received universally great reviews went on to sell over 125,000 copies worldwide on the independent Albert Productions rock label, a startling debut achievement.

The ensuing years saw the band cement their fearsome reputation, both as an astonishing live band and as rock’s brightest hopes, securing high profile support slots with The Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, and a two-year stint on AC/DC’s 2008 Black Ice tour, which took them around the world and into some of the biggest venues on the planet. 

“We were thrown to the wolves a lot of nights on the road with AC/DC and all we had to fall back on was the four of us playing together” recalls mercurial guitar hero Paul Mahon. “We had to make it work and dig in really hard. It was an incredible rock baptism”.

 In 2019, long time uber fan and international independent hard rock label Golden Robot founder, Mark Alexander-Erber, fulfilled a life-long ambition by signing The Answer to his Golden Robot Records to secure a brand-new 7th studio album, due for release in 2023; a record which, in the words of Alexander-Erber will be The Answer’s “greatest balls out straight ahead rock album ever’, eclipsing the debut of Rise for power, songs and sheer attitude. To say I am excited is an understatement, for me it’s a life-long ambition and privilege to work with these guys”

With over 300,000 catalogue album sales under their belt and considered one of the forebearers of what is now colloquially known as the New Wave of Classic Rock, The Answer are thrilled to release “Blood Brother,” a track they feel represents a truly powerful comeback after a long time away from the scene.
