Whitesnake Begins Writing New Album, Unlikely To Tour This Year

Hard rock legends Whitesnake has announced that they have begun work on a brand new studio album and as a result, believe it is unlikely that they will tour in 2010. A message from lead vocalist David Coverdale reads as follows:

"It is unlikely that Whitesnake will tour in 2010, as we have committed to writing & recording a new studio album & delighted to report we are working with an enthusiastic, highly respected record company, whom at this time I am reluctant to name, until they wish to make their own announcement...

"The album will feature all new, fresh material...

"We are off to a very good start, with the new songs taking very positive shape... At this time it feels like a solid, natural follow up to Good To Be Bad... but, taking it to the next level...

"Soulful, bluesy, melodic power rock with a couple of underwear moistening, tear jerkers thrown in for good measure...

"I personally feel we are off to a very strong & positive start...

"At this time the plan is to resume touring in Spring 2011, to coincide with the release of the new studio album...

"The tour will be a World Tour... yes... that includes YOUR country, Boys & Girls...

"We also are planning to mix several other Whitesnake related projects this year that have been consistently requested by our supporters... So, fingers crossed, it will be a very, very busy, creative & productive time thro' 2010..."

the last Whitesnake album was GREAT. If he's got the same guys in the band again I have no doubt that this'll rock. anyone who thinks they suck should go listen to "Lay Down Your Love". It sounds like something straight from Coverdale/Page.

It should be worthwhile. I also thought their last album was alright for what it was, Coverdale's payed some dues. He's no front runner spotlight chaser like bjovi or michaels. WS are a good change-up after long sessions of brain melting METAL.
