Irish rockers The Answer have announced their new album, ‘New Horizon’. This will be their fourth studio record, with mixes from rock icon Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Metallica), the new album will be released on September 30, 2013 through label Napalm Records GmbH. The band were also honoured and privileged that the late Storm Thorgerson and his team saw fit to design the artwork for the new album and Storm was working on final ideas for the album cover just before his sad passing.
The Downpatrick quartet consists of Cormac Neeson (vocals), Paul Mahon (guitar), Micky Waters (bass) and James Heatley (drums). Cormac Neeson: “We’re back and we’re back in a big way. Our love for rock ‘n’ roll is still as fresh as a skinny dip in the Lagan – that’s the big river that runs through Belfast! And we really believe that this is by far and away our best album to date. We can’t wait to get out and play it live!”
