The band are working on European and American dates and there will be more news on this soon. Frontman Cormac Neeson made the following comments:
"The Answer are back and we're gonna revive rock n roll from the grassroots up. We had two great years playing in some of the biggest venues in the world in front of a ridiculous amount of people but this time around we're looking for something different. So that's why on this first leg of the Revival tour we're taking our new album back to some of those sweaty intimate venues where it all began.
"We've missed the intensity of being able to look our audiences in the eye, we've missed being able to jump into the crowd without needing a ladder to get back up again, and we've missed being able to have a beer with you guys after the show. So that's why we're scaling it right down and let me tell you we are excited.
"We're playing better than we've ever played before and we've an entire albums worth of new material thats gonna put rock n roll right back on the map again. It's gonna be a special tour... bring it on!!"
