WHITESNAKE Signs European Deal With SPV; New Live Album Due In November

August 3, 2006

Steamhammer/SPV has announced the signing of WHITESNAKE, one of the greatest and most acclaimed hard rock acts of all time. November 3, 2006 in Germany and November 6, 2006 in Europe will see the arrival of WHITESNAKE's new double live album, "Live ... In The Shadow Of The Blues", capturing for posterity the infectious enthusiasm that the band has presented all over Europe during this year's festival season.

For thirty years, WHITESNAKE have been among the most influential representatives of their genre, having produced numerous rock music classics such as "Here I Go Again", "Is This Love", "In The Still Of The Night", "Fool For Your Loving", "Ain't No Love In The Heart Of The City" and "Walking In The Shadows Of The Blues".

"Live ... In The Shadow Of The Blues" includes almost all the remarkable hits from WHITESNAKE's career, as well as two timeless DEEP PURPLE classics in "Burn" and "Stormbringer". Coverdale was the frontman of the legendary British act between 1973 and 1976, making a significant contribution to numerous PURPLE highlights during this era. "Live ... In The Shadow Of The Blues" also includes four previously unreleased tracks in "Ready To Rock", "If You Want Me (I'll Come Running)", "All I Want Is You" and "Dog", eagerly awaited by all WHITESNAKE fans. The strictly limited version of the double album will be available in a top-quality digipack, featuring a number of surprises, among them the bonus track "Crying In The Rain", including a haunting drum solo by drum legend Tommy Aldridge.

Connoisseurs consider the current WHITESNAKE lineup one of the technically most accomplished in the band's history. The two outstanding guitar players — Doug Aldrich (ex-DIO) and Reb Beach (WINGER, ex-DOKKEN) — continue the long tradition of excellent guitarists that has always distinguished WHITESNAKE. The exceptional drummer Tommy Aldridge has been with the group for over twenty years, and bassist Uriah Duffy and keyboarder Timothy Drury are two world-class musicians who complement the lineup perfectly.
