Info for Sundowners
After a long seven-year hiatus, Northern Irish rockers The Answer are releasing their long-awaited and brand-new studio album "Sundowners".
Sundowners has been produced and mixed by rising British rock producer Dan Weller (Enter Shikari, Bury Tomorrow) and will be supported by a run of limited capacity 17 date UK and European album launch shows.
The album was recorded in April 2022 at Middlefarm studios, Devon and was the first time the band had been together in a studio since 2015.
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 the 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!”
In 2019, long time super fan and international independent hard rock label Golden Robot Records founder, Mark Alexander-Erber, fulfilled a life-long ambition by signing The Answerto his label 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”
The band’s first single from the album Blood Brother went straight on to the Planet Rock Radio A-List in the UK, and the following two singles Want You To Love Me and Livin’ On The Line offer an additional taste of what to expect from the album.
Blues-influenced hard rock band the Answer first came together in 2000 when guitarist Paul Mahon, then 18 years old and living in Northern Ireland, decided to put together a group with the help of a friend, bassist Micky Waters. Waters was already a veteran of the Belfast club circuit, having played in several cover bands, and Mahon had been given a crash course in the nuts and bolts of the music business by his father, who played trumpet in a long-running Irish show band. Mahon recruited James Heatley to play drums, Cormac Neeson signed on as lead singer, and the Answer were born.
After several months of rehearsing and writing material, the Answer started playing live gigs in 2001, and in 2002 they landed a prestigious gig as the opening act at Ireland's Witness Festival. In 2005, the Answer signed a record deal with the U.K. branch of Albert Productions, and in June 2006 their first album, Rise, arrived in shops. Rise earned enthusiastic reviews in Kerrang! and Classic Rock and chalked up respectable sales in the U.K. while becoming a legitimate hit in Japan. After sharing bills with everyone from Deep Purple and Paul Rodgers to the Rolling Stones and the Who, the Answer reissued Rise in 2007 with a bonus disc including a handful of tracks the group had issued as download-only singles.
In 2008 they continued their busy schedule with shows at the Isle of Wight Festival and opening for influential Australian rock outfit AC/DC on the European leg of their Black Ice world tour. Between the two they managed to retreat to L.A. and work on sessions for their sophomore release, Everyday Demons, which came out in 2009. They ended the year with a headlining tour in the U.K., before they began work on their third album in early 2010. The following year the four-piece released a DVD of their live performances on tour with AC/DC titled 412 Days of Rock 'n' Roll, and swiftly followed it up with the studio album Revival. Their fourth record, New Horizon, was released in September 2013, and just 18 months later, the band had recorded and issued their fifth, Raise a Little Hell, in March 2015. Following a U.S. tour in support of the album, the band's singer/lyricist returned to welcome a new son who was born three months premature. Neeson and his wife were able to bring their son home only after four harrowing months in hospital, an experience that informed the band's next album, Solas, released in autumn of 2016.
