The Answer

Blues-influenced hard rock band the Answer first came together in 2000 when guitarist Paul Mahon, then 18 years old and living in Northern Ireland, decided to put together a group with the help of a friend, bassist Micky Waters. Waters was already a veteran of the Belfast club circuit, having played in several cover bands, and Mahon had been given a crash course in the nuts and bolts of the music business by his father, who played trumpet in a long-running Irish show band. Mahon recruited James Heatley to play drums, Cormac Neeson signed on as lead singer, and the Answer were born.

After several months of rehearsing and writing material, the Answer started playing live gigs in 2001, and in 2002 they landed a prestigious gig as the opening act at Ireland's Witness Festival. In 2005, the Answer signed a record deal with the U.K. branch of Albert Productions, and in June 2006 their first album, Rise, arrived in shops. Rise earned enthusiastic reviews in Kerrang! and Classic Rock and chalked up respectable sales in the U.K., while becoming a legitimate hit in Japan. After sharing bills with everyone from Deep Purple and Paul Rodgers to the Rolling Stones and the Who, the Answer reissued Rise in 2007 with a bonus disc including a handful of tracks the group had issued as download-only singles.

In 2008 they continued their busy schedule with shows at the Isle of Wight Festival and opening for influential Australian rock outfit AC/DC on the European leg of their Black Ice world tour. Between the two they managed to retreat to L.A. and worked on sessions for their sophomore release, Everyday Demons, which came out in 2009. They ended the year with a headlining tour in the U.K., before they began work on their third album in early 2010. The following year the four-piece released a DVD of their live performances on tour with AC/DC titled 412 Days of Rock 'n' Roll, and swiftly followed it up with the studio album Revival. Their fourth record, New Horizon, was released in September 2013. ~ Mark Deming & Scott Kerr, Rovi

Holy crap! What did I stumble onto!? I'm a huge fan of classic hard rock and I saw the name of this band and started a new station. Next thing I know I'm listening to 2 hrs. of kick-arse rock and roll by bands I didn't know existed! Thanks again Pandora for the new band exposure!

They sound like they recorded this in the 60's!This stuff is great! I can't believe this is new music.
This band is great and I hope that they're able to get some more exposure. I became a fan after I saw them open for AC/DC and I hope that more and more people will hear about these guys.
If you like AC/DC,Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, or any of the all time greats then this is a band you should defenitly check into.
Today's Zeppelin!
These guys rocked with AC/DC
