The first single/video from the album is "Vida (I Want You)" backed with "Can't Remember, Can't Forget" (live acoustic). The album also contains a duet, "Nowhere Freeway", which sees singer Cormac Neeson pairing up with rock 'n' soul vocalist and SAINT JUDE frontwoman Lynne Jackaman for an impressive vocal display.

Commented Neeson: "The studio we used was on a ranch in the middle of a pecan orchard near El Paso, next to the Mexican border a wonderful place for creating music, with that whole Wild West vibe, and 'Frenchie' was always encouraging us to dream that bit bigger and rock that bit harder. We had a lot of fun, and the experience was a positive one from start to finish."

To coincide with the new album release, THE ANSWER has announced its first U.K. tour since December 2009; the band spent the previous 18 months on the road with AC/DC on the latter's record-breaking "Black Ice" world tour the full story of which has been documented on THE ANSWER's recently released DVD/CD set, "412 Days Of Rock 'N' Roll', also available via Spinefarm.
