The Answer Release A Killer Lyric Video, “Long Live The Renegades”

You know, you can’t really go wrong to combine hard rock with a strong blues back beat. Sure, you might end up sounding like AC/DC, but since when is that such a bad thing. At the very least you’ll be an excellent bar band producing choice party music, or even music suitable for a car commercial. While The Answer’s new track, “Long Live the Renegades,” fits right in with good ol’ bar brawl, the lyric video is among the best we’ve seen. The retro demonic artwork fits right in with the retro ’70s vibe of the track, and I’d pay money for some of that on a T-shirt.

Ireland’s The Answer will release their new album, Raise a Little Hell, this March in North America, via Napalm Records. This is the follow up to their critically acclaimed 2013 release, New Horizon. Raise a Little Hell can be pre-ordered on CD, MP3, and vinyl.

The band commented on the new track:

The song is a bit of a rocker and we tried a slightly different production technique on this track by keeping it very dry. The song is about just doing what you do best and having a bit of a bunker mentality. This is our fifth album and we’ve gone back to our earlier blues and roots style with what we think are harder rockin’ grooves. Hope you like it as much as we do!
