THE ANSWER finally overcame the recent US Visa problems and have made it to the USA in time for their tour with WHITESNAKE!

The band are also releasing a new single Gone Too Long, July 31 following their North American tour, European Festivals and a special one off London Planet Rock show on July 29.

THE ANSWER had to re-route their US flights last minute and at an extra cost to secure a visa wavier in Dublin, Ireland before heading to Dallas.

Frontman, Cormac Neeson commented:
“Our first gig in Dallas was one of my favorite gigs of all time. It may well have been an outpouring of pent up emotion having nearly missed our tour because of the visa crash or maybe it was because this was our first gig on American soil in more than 5 years. Either way it rocked hard and we had the gig of our lives!!”

In terms of the upcoming single, Gone Too Long, we can only expect great things from one of the hardest working and brilliant British artists in today’s rock!
