The Answer support Aerosmith in Hyde Park and tour Europe

Balls-out Irish rockers, The Answer, are pleased to announce that they will be playing, by request, two shows including the Hyde Park Calling event with rock legends Aerosmith. The Hyde Park show takes place on June 24th and prior to that they will also perform with Aerosmith on the main stage at Sweden Rock festival, June 8th.

This is a great honour for the band who are huge fans of Messrs. Tyler & co; their cover version of Sweet Emotion has become a live favourite and was included on the recent digital single, Be What You Want, released on March 12th.

Having supported The Who at last year’s Leeds Wireless festival and completed tours with Whitesnake in the UK and Eagles Of Death Metal in Australia, The Answer are certainly no strangers to the big stage and this is set to continue through a very hectic summer touring period. The beginning of March saw them headline a sold out show at the legendary London Bloomsbury Ballroom and by media and public demand they fly to the other side of the world to play their first ever headline gig in Tokyo, March 27th at the Shibuya A-X.

April will also see the band embark on a full headline European tour to support their forthcoming pan European single release of Be What You Want. At the end of this run and in response to the ever growing army of fans in Ireland, The Answer will headline the Temple Bar music centre in Dublin on May 10th and then the 1200 capacity Belfast Mandela Hall on May 11th.

With the release of their debut album Rise, reaching Number 11 in the Japanese International album chart and Number 27 in the National album chart, The Answer are fast becoming an international success. Since its release in the UK (July 06) and Europe (September 06) the album has clocked up a whopping 65,000 copies sold and achieved an Impala SILVER status certification. With that number rising and with growing international and Japanese exposure, he band edge ever nearer their first 100,000 sales.

If 2006 saw the band cement their solid foundations at the forefront of the current rock scene, 2007 will undoubtedly see them catapulted to super-stardom and international recognition.
