uma banda que (ainda) falamos pouco por aqui no blog é o Whitesnake – então vamos direcionar um pouquinho da nossa atenção aos nossos amigos Coverdale e CIA.
A banda soltou um Press Release sobre o novo álbum, “Forevermore”, que sairá no dia 25/março/2011 na Europa e no dia 29/março/2011 na América do Norte. O último trabalho da banda foi o disco de 2008, Good To Be Bad. Confiram abaixo a capa do vindouro álbum e o Press Release na íntegra, que traz todas as informações do 11º álbum de estúdio da banda:
WHITESNAKE are back with the anticipated release of their brand new album “Forevermore”
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 byCoverdale, 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 release.
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 on a double gatefold vinyl format, with deluxe special editions to be announced shortly.
This time Coverdale and Co. have really laid it on the line for their fans, and be sure of this, the Snake’s charms are going to convert a whole new army of believers… just watch.
“Forevermore” will include the following songs:
Steal Your Heart Away; All Out Of Luck; Love Will Set You Free; Easier Said Than Done; Tell Me How; I Need You (Shine A Light); One Of These Days; Love And Treat Me Right; Dogs In The Street; Fare Thee Well; Whipping Boy Blues; My Evil Ways; Forevermore.

Produced by Los Bros Brutalos (David Coverdale, Doug Aldrich, Michael McIntyre)
Achei o Press Release muito bem feito, bem como a capa do álbum. Um sample da música “Love Will Set You Free” já pode ser conferido nos site oficial dos caras, aqui.
Como vocês puderam ver, a Inglaterra será premiada com uma edição deluxe do álbum.
Outra grande notícia do comunicado é que a banda lançará um DVD + CD duplo: “Live @ Donington 1990″, ainda no verão europeu deste ano. Haverá também uma edição deluxe em vinil, com mais detalhes ainda a serem anunciados.
Boas notícias da “cobra branca”… quem sabe mais uma tour pelo nosso país ainda em 2011… aliás, uma ÓTIMA pedida para uma noite no Rock In Rio 4, não?
