The Answer follows up a heady international fanfare with their official introduction to North American audiences, 2008’s ‘Never Too Late.’ The limited edition, 4-song EP/DVD comprises three studio tracks – “Never Too Late” from the band’s debut album ‘Rise,’ “The Doctor” from ‘Rise: Special Edition’ and “Highwater or Hell” a sneak preview from their forthcoming 2009 U.S. debut LP – plus a live version of “Come Follow Me” from a 2007 show in Japan. The EP comes packaged with an exclusive one-hour bonus DVD loaded with exclusive band interviews, documentary clips from the past two years, live performance highlights and videos.
Also in ’08, The Answer will be spotlighted on “Guitar Hero: World Tour,” the newest installment of Activision’s massively popular game franchise. Next up will be their second album – and debut North American full-length – ‘Everyday Demons,’ in first quarter 2009, also on The End. Produced by John Travis (Kid Rock, Static-X, Killing Heidi, etc.), the disc was tracked at Los Angeles studio Seedy Underbelly in summer ’08.
Not bad for four country lads from Downpatrick, County Down, about thirty miles outside Belfast who, according to star-powered lead singer Cormac Neeson, “spent three or four years playing every shit hole we could find” before getting their start in the U.K. with Australian indie label Albert Productions, famed for the development of rock icons AC/DC. Since then, while they continue to blow the roofs off of clubs across the European continent, they’ve opened stadium and arena concerts for legendary acts including the Rolling Stones, The Who, Aerosmith, Deep Purple and Whitesnake and toured with contemporaries such as Eagles of Death Metal and Alter Bridge to name a few. The Answer has also triumphantly headlined tours in Japan, Australia and various corners of Europe, East and West.
