THE ANSWER: SUB 89, READING PLUS EXCLUSIVE VIDEO INTERVIEW
Irish hard rockers The Answer hit the 'Road Less Travelled' for this second part of their touring schedule promoting their fourth album, 'New Horizon', taking in venues that are indeed less travelled by many numerous counterparts.

The band are tight and ballsy with a depth of the blues hidden within. 'Under The Sky' and 'Concrete' are rock solid crunchers while homage is shown to the Irish rover Rory Gallagher with a passionate 'Cradle Rock'.
'Nowhere Freeway' is a smooth ride before the uplifting party punch of 'Spectacular' before the band really express themselves with the bluesy swamp of 'Memphis Water' and the Led Zep groove of 'Come Follow Me'.
An imposing set from a band who have yet to fulfil their potential promise.
Before the show Mark Taylor spoke to guitarist Paul Mahon and bassist Micky Waters about 'New Horizon' and touring with rock legends AC/DC and a whole lot more.
