Anyone searching for a New Horizon out there??
Well on the 30th September you might just find what you’ve been looking for. We’re releasing an album that’s so good Bono’s not gonna be able to sing that song anymore. (Thank f~#k for that.) And the good news doesn’t stop there...
Our first single Spectacular will be officially released on the 30th September BUT will be available as a 7” VINYL AND DIGITAL RELEASE FROM August 2nd. We’ve just finished shooting and editing the video and it looks fantastic. Not entirely sure how many spins it will get before the watershed. Lets just say it was a lot of fun on the set for this one.
As the countdown to lift off has begun, we’re also launching a series of ten viral videos that will be released on a weekly basis right up to the day of the album launch. Entitled “NEW HORIZON DRINKING SESSIONS” this series of viral promo captures the band taking an introspective and enlightening look at the rich culture of alcohol distillation and consumption in Ireland. We’ll be selflessly undertaking the task of sampling ten different locally brewed tipples in a few of our favourite Belfast pubs. Yes...its an excuse for a band piss up and a pretty funny one at that. With every video launch there will be a 60 second exclusive stream of each new track on the player. So not only is it a highly informative and entertaining visual experience but you get to hear some BRAND NEW ROCK N ROLL as well. David Attenborough must be shitting himself.
The Answer have never been a band to rest on our cyberspace laurels and the next few months are no exception to this rule. Throughout the summer our website will be evolving and changing at a breakneck speed. We’ll also be giving away some FREE DOWNLOAD RINGTONES of new music...it might even be ours. So you really want to be keeping an eye out for the anthemic delights that are going to be on offer.
And then there’s the FORTY DATE UK and EUROPEAN TOUR kicking of in October. We are delighted to officially announce that our Aussie brothers in arms TRACER will be our very special guest for that entire tour. If you haven’t seen these guys, you really ought to as they really know how to shake their shit. It goes without saying that this tour is going to be the most exciting headline tour we have ever embarked on and should not be missed under any circumstances. I don’t care if you’ve been hiding in an abandoned air raid shelter on a piece of volcanic rock off the coast of Madagascar.Get yourself a ticket for this tour. And have a shower while you’re at it...there’s gonna be enough sweaty rockers on stage every night.
NEW HORIZON will be released on 30th September 2013 as a CD jewel case, 13 track special limited edition digi pak (with loads of top quality bonus material), a double 12” vinyl (bonus material heaven) and a special Itunes exclusive (did I mention bonus tracks?).
On a way more serious note, we’d like to re-iterate just how lucky we are to have a Storm Thorgerson designed album cover to accompany our new music in September. We were honoured that Storm accepted the challenge in the first place and as you will see...his artistic genius shone as brightly as a supernova right to the end. Thank you Storm.
Have a ROCKIN SUMMER my friends!!!
Cormac (the singer guy)
