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 Forevermoreand 2015s The Purple Album, a reimagining of Deep Purple classics from Whitesnake masterminds David Coverdales time in that band. The 13 original, visceral tracks on Flesh & Blood, the bands 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?

 

Since joining the band four years ago, and just in time for the aforementioned The Purple Album, Chicago native Joel Hoekstra has really come into his own, not only as a highly impressive axe-slinger, but also as a very accomplished songwriter too, co-writing six of the songs for Flesh & Bloodwith singer David Coverdale. Of course Joels talents are hardly surprising, considering hes the son of two classical musicians.

 

Guitarist Reb Beach, who originally joined Whitesnake in 2002, has stepped up to become the groups bandleader and guides the band to implement Coverdales musical vision. As well as bringing his impressive musical chops to the band, Reb has co-written five songs on the new album, the fourth studio album he has appeared on, commencing with 2008s highly acclaimed Good To Be Bad.

 

It was the  “Good To Be Badfollow up, Forevermore(2011), that saw the debut of bassist Michael Devin. The New Englanders four-string-depth-charge-bass-bombs definitively underpin and drive the sound of Whitesnake in the 21st century.

 

Rounding out the rhythm section is Davids longest serving Snake, the renowned drummer and unstoppable percussionist Tommy Aldridge, who has been with Whitesnake in some capacity for 30 years. Tommy made his debut with Whitesnake way back in 1987 in the Still Of The Nightvideo, becoming a mainstay behind the kit for successive albums and tours.

 

Last, but certainly not least, the band is completed by the inventive keyboards and vocals of Italian maestro Michele Luppi, who made his live debut in 2015, as documented on The Purple Tourlive CD/DVD (2018).

 

The current incarnation of the band carries on the long and unwavering tradition of mainman 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.

 

Flesh & Bloodwill be released May 10, 2019 via Frontiers Music Srl in multiple formats. See below for full details.
