WHITESNAKE, the legendary rock'n'roll legacy founded and formed
by renowned singer/songwriter David Coverdale, unleashes a brand
new storming 'Snake statement, "Forevermore" on Frontiers
Records on March 25th in Europe and March 29th in North America.
Their 11th studio album,
"Forevermore" was recorded, produced and mixed by Coverdale,
guitarist Doug Aldrich and Michael McIntyre at Snakebyte Studios
and Grumblenott Studios & Villas in Lake Tahoe, Nevada, with
additional work at Casa Dala, Sherman Oaks, CA, and Whitesnake
will take to the road for a full world tour in support of the
Formed in 1977, and steered by the
legendary Coverdale, Whitesnake carry a rightful reputation as
one of the world's leading rock'n'roll bands. Coverdale's blues
and soul roots, combined with a feral sense of rock and roll,
have consistently shaped the 'Snake's sound, and add to that
Coverdale's love and appreciation of impeccable musicianship and
you have a failsafe recipe for success.
Their ascent to the very top of the
rock'n'roll tree was confirmed with 1987's self-titled
mega-platinum album, which saw two top 10 hits, two number one
singles with 'Here I Go Again' and 'Is This Love' and a virtual
24 hour domination of MTV around the world. Such triumphs were
surely foretold when as a young man from Saltburn-By-Sea,
Coverdale enthusiastically answered the call to be Deep Purple's
singer. Such bombast, bravado, talent and passion have thus
helped establish Whitesnake as the perennial platinum favorite
they have become.
With "Forevermore" Coverdale has
reignited an explosively fruitful vein of creativity with
guitarist and co-writer/producer Aldrich, Reb Beach (Winger,
Alice Cooper) on guitar, Briian Tichy (Ozzy, Billy Idol,
Foreigner) on drums and Michael Devin (Kenny Wayne Shepherd,
Lynch Mob) on bass, and as with all Whitesnake's albums,
Coverdale aided so capably by Aldrich opens up his heart and
soul to express emotions and empathy rarely heard these days in
any musical genre.
More than simply their latest
release, "Forevermore" represents Whitesnake's no holds barred,
most heartfelt, melodic and musically muscular excursion for
many a year.
The album's release will be
anticipated by the digital only release of the first single/videoclip
"Love Will Set You Free" on February 21st.
"Forevermore" will be specially
released on a "Snake Pack" edition for the first 3 weeks in
England only. This very special release - arranged in
conjunction with Future Publishing and Classic Rock magazine -
will come with a collectors edition 132 pages deluxe magazine +
A1 poster & metal pin badge and shall feature an exclusive cover
art and 2 bonus live tracks "Slide It In" and "Cheap An' Nasty"
which will serve as an appetizer for the forthcoming "Live @ Donington 1990" to be released in the summer 2011.
*The Live@Donington 1990 will be a DVD accompanied by a double CD of the show.
The album will be also be released
