Snakecharmer släpper "Second Skin" i maj
Den 12:e maj släpper Snakecharmer nya albumet "Second Skin" via bolaget Frontiers Records. Så här går att läsa i ett pressmeddelande:
Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of SNAKECHARMER’s sophomore album, “Second Skin” on May 12, 2017.
British Hard Rock supergroup SNAKECHARMER was originally founded in 2011 by former WHITESNAKE/David Coverdale members Micky Moody and Neil Murray along with the perfect mix of high calibre musicians including Laurie Wisefield (Wishbone Ash), Harry James (Thunder, MAGNUM), Adam Wakeman (Ozzy Osbourne), and Chris Ousey (Heartland). The band’s debut self-titled album was released in 2013 and musically the record showed a finely crafted Hard Rock style mixed with Blues and melodic overtones, akin to Micky and Neil's former band and BAD COMPANY, with hints of early FOREIGNER as well.
SNAKECHARMER played live shows regularly in support of the album’s release and built a solid fanbase in the UK and Europe. In 2016, Moody left the band and was replaced by the Irish-born Simon McBride on lead guitar.
“Second Skin” is the hotly anticipated second effort from SNAKECHARMER and brings the listener straight back to the good old days of real Rock n' Roll played with heart and soul. Slightly harder edged compared to the debut, but with roots still firmly planted in the classic Hard Rock vibe with a hint of late '70s AOR, this new record sounds fresh and crisp.
Bassist Neil Murray says: “It’s been a rather long journey, but finally I’m very pleased to announce that SNAKECHARMER are soon to release our new album, "Second Skin". The band has now found its own unique musical identity, and in particular Laurie Wisefield and Chris Ousey have contributed some very powerful and melodic songs, which still have the SNAKECHARMER Blues-Rock distinctive trademarks. The band works in a very democratic and collaborative way, which means that sometimes there is a lot of discussion before decisions are finally made, and it was great to have a more objective viewpoint from producer Gary Stevenson, who also fired the band up with his ideas, enthusiasm and sonic skills. We can’t wait to get out on tour and play some of the new songs, together with the best of our established classics, both SNAKECHARMER and WHITESNAKE, and showcase our new virtuoso guitarist, the brilliant Simon McBride.”
