THE ANSWER release their long-awaited new album ‘Sundowners‘ this week, 17th March 2023, via Golden Robot Records and 7Hz.
The Northern Irish hard rock band took the Best New Band category in 2005, went on a New School of Rock Tour, with Tokyo Dragons and later supported Deep Purple. They opened for AC/DC on the 2008/9 Black Ice World Tour. But their last studio album was Solas (2016).
The new album 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 2023 at Middlefarm studios, Devon and was the first time the band had been together in a studio since 2015.
ANSWER lead singer Cormac Neeson says, “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!”
The track ‘Livin’ On The Line’ (video shared below) is a perfect rocky strewn jangle-riffed jaunt across starry skies, darkly macadamized roads, and on into an irondust horizon. This number has it all: a karaoke bar chorus, a hair-slamming beat, a knuckle-throbbing riff, and that indefinable partying, hand clapping, and headlining spark that sounds as electrically scalding as AC/DC and as delightfully igneous as Bon Jovi, circa ’85.
