The Answer Announce New Single, Album & Tour Dates
‘New Horizon’ is due out in September.The Irish rockers have revealed details of their first studio album since 2011's "Revival". Produced by ex Little Angels vocalist Toby Jepson, the new record, "New Horizon” will be released on September 30th 2013 through Napalm Records.
The album will be preceded by a single called "Spectacular" on August 5th, with limited green and blue 7" vinyl versions available for pre-order now.
Rock icon Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Metallica) took the helm for mixing duties, while the late Storm Thorgerson and his team designed the artwork. A statement released by Storm Studios reads:
"Never one for looking back or resting on his laurels Storm always got a thrill from working with young bands and from the idea of 'newness' in general. In his last few months Storm and the Storm Studios team threw ourselves wholeheartedly into many new projects and New Horizon was one of the last covers we designed together. As is our usual modus operandi, we interrogated the band at length about their music and lives, and listened to the album on repeat for a month. Our final designs were submitted to The Answer very shortly before Storm died. The image itself came from our thoughts about endings and new beginnings, very poignant for all concerned."
