Whitesnake - Flesh & Blood coming 10th May 2019

Recommended Posts

The new Whitesnake cd titled Flesh & Blood is due to be released on 10th May 2019 and the first single dropped today...

 

Fresh off celebrating their 40th anniversary, rock legends Whitesnake return with their latest studio album, “Flesh & Blood”. This album follows the 2011 critically acclaimed studio album “Forevermore” and 2015’s “The Purple Album”, a reimagining of Deep Purple classics from Whitesnake mastermind’s David Coverdale’s time in that band. The 13 original, visceral tracks on “Flesh & Blood”, the band’s 13th studio album, are, luckily for you dear reader, “all killer, no filler”, as the saying goes.

But would you expect anything less from the ’Snakes?

David Coverdale, the mastermind behind Whitesnake & co-composer of 'Shut Up & Kiss Me' with guitarist Reb Beach, commenting on the forthcoming release said "that after the intense darkness of our last video BURN If anything, it’s ‘light’ snake, you know? We’ve got some really dark energy going on in the world right now, so we’re gonna write & record a fun, knees up, song about falling in love with a fabulous babe. You’re over-talking, over-compensating & she just looks at you, takes the reins & says, 'Shut Up and Kiss Me!' and that’s it!! My video director and creative partner Tyler Bourns and I discussed a great storyline for the video, which involves a surprise guest: my fabulous old white Jaguar. We ended up cleaning and detailing it, as it has been in storage since I moved to Lake Tahoe, then we dusted off my old turquoise silk jacket from the original ‘Here I Go Again’ video and I was thinking, "man, this is going to be fun!" It’s a respectful acknowledgment and positive nod to the past, just fun stuff.”

Joining Coverdale on Flesh & Blood is the powerhouse band comprised of Reb Beach and Joel Hoekstra on guitar, Michael Devin on bass, Tommy Aldridge on drums, and Michele Luppi on keyboards.

The current incarnation of the band carries on the long and unwavering tradition of main man David Coverdale being surrounded by cream of the crop players who go all in to bring fans the best hard rock humanly possible. 40+ years into their existence, the ‘Snakes fangs have only grown sharper and are ready to inject fans with more of that rock ‘n roll venom they crave.

Honestly, I haven't been a huge Whitesnake fan over the years for whatever reason.  I dug them a bit back in the late 80's but they've mostly been off my radar.

That said, kinda like this tune.  Fun song and agree it has a classic Whitesnake vibe to it.

I'm right there with you, only this song does nothing to make me want to listen to them. Nice guitar work though.

I agree. What the hell is up with David's voice? It doesn't sound like him anymore.

Worth it alone just to hear Reb Beach do a solo....his tapping sound is still my favourite.

I actually don't mind that at all. Never was a gigantic Whitesnake fan, but this reminds me of the two albums from them I did like. Good stuff.

That song sounds great. One of the best "rock" songs they have released in years.

A fun song that musically sounds good, but David's vocals put me off a bit, he sounded a bit strained on the last few albums, which is understandable with age, but he sounds almost unlistenable at times on this new track

I just heard ... sounds like a return to their late 80s sound which isn’t a bad thing

New track is OK, as with the prior single musically this sounds really good and reminds of the band's late 80's sound, for me though Dave's voice still sounds rough, albeit not as distracting, and the chorus gets a bit too repetitive

The song is average at best but damn that guitar solo scorches.
