The award-winning Irish rockers, The Answer, who recently played Sonisphere

Titled ‘Revival’ and produced by the Grammy-nominated Chris ‘Frenchie’ Smith, with mixing handled by Chris Sheldon, this is the third studio album released by the Downpatrick quartet since first coming together a decade ago.

The initial run of the album will be a limited edition deluxe format with 24-page booklet & band sleeve-notes, plus an 11-track second disc containing previously unreleased studio, acoustic, demo & cover material.

The first single / video from the album will be ‘Vida (I Want You)’ b/w ‘Can’t Remember, Can’t Forget’ (live acoustic), set for release through Spinefarm on September 5th. The album also contains a duet, “Nowhere Freeway”, which sees Cormac pairing up with rock’n’soul vocalist and ST JUDE frontwoman Lynne Jackaman for an impressive vocal display.
