Whitesnake will release their new studio album Flesh & Blood via Frontiers Music Srl on May 10th. Today they release their new single “Trouble Is Your Middle Name.” Listen to it below.
Flesh & Blood follows the 2011 critically acclaimed studio album Forevermore and 2015’s The Purple Album, a re-imagining of Deep Purple classics from Whitesnake mastermind’s David Coverdale’s time in that band. The 13 original, visceral tracks on Flesh & Blood, the band’s 13th studio album, are, luckily for you dear reader, “all killer, no filler”, as the saying goes. But would you expect anything less from the ’Snakes?
Joining Coverdale on Flesh & Blood is the powerhouse band comprised of Reb Beach and Joel Hoekstra on guitar, Michael Devin on bass, Tommy Aldridge on drums, and Michele Luppi on keyboards. The current incarnation of the band carries on the long and unwavering tradition of main man David Coverdale being surrounded by cream of the crop players who go all in to bring fans the best hard rock humanly possible. 40+ years into their existence, the ‘Snakes fangs have only grown sharper and are ready to inject fans with more of that rock ‘n roll venom they crave.
Flesh & Blood will be available on CD/LP/Digital formats. See below for full details of the various configurations available.
