News: Sundowners Is The Perfect Answer For Irish Rockers

St. Patricks Day broke a seven-year hiatus for Northern Irish rockers The Answer with their brand new, spectacular and long-studio album “Sundowner”

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 Answer to his label to secure a brand new 7 th 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 album will be released by Golden Robot Records Pty and by licensee 7Hz Productions (ADA) in the UK & Europe. The release will come in several formats including a Cd Gatefold Digi sleeve, Gatefold 12” 180g black vinyl, 2 x 12” colour vinyl exclusives, a 12” fan collectible Picture Disk, Digital and various limited retail exclusive versions with HMV, Rough Trade, Crash and Assai Records.

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.
The Answer’s first comeback live show since 2017 will take place as “special guests” at this year’s Planet Rockstock festival, after which the band will promote their new album release with a run of limited capacity album launch shows, tour dates as follows:
