A decade into their career the new album marks a significant turning point for The Answer. Solas sees the four-piece go back to their roots, embracing elements of their Celtic background, encompassing Irish instrumentation, layered vocals and supporting chants in Gaelic and even Latin whilst keeping in line with their renowned trademark blues-filled and fiery rock guitar sound.
It is an honest and brave album that panders to no label, to no media framework and to no rules. It is a record that bears the scars and soul of four talented men from Northern Ireland; sometimes troubled but seeking creative liberation.
The Answer will be bringing their fierce Irish rock’n’roll to the UK this November on a co-headline tour with The Dead Daisies, which includes a show at London’s Electric Ballroom on the 23rd.
