Rising British rockers The Answer have won the ultimate rock accolade ‘ their song ‘Never Too Late’ is to be featured on the forthcoming Guitar Hero IV Game, due for release in late 2008.
Through an industry song search held at this year’s international Midem conference and hosted by Activision (the company behind Guitar Hero 3 and other huge games such as Tony Hawk Project 8, Call Of Duty and X-Men), The Answer won the vote from over 200 internationally submitted label and publisher artist tracks to have one of their tracks included in the cult game. The present game, Guitar Hero 3 currently features songs from such legends as Iron Maiden, Slayer, Muse, Guns ‘n’ Roses, Weezer and Rage Against The Machine. Come the summer hordes of front-room axe-wielding wannabes will now be trying their hand at this riff heavy classic from their debut 100,000 selling album ‘Rise’.
The search started with music companies at the recent Midem conference putting forward their bands for possible inclusion. Out of the hundreds of hopefuls, 20 were selected by Activision at a conference ‘Listening Session’, where the tracks were played to an esteemed panel consisting of leading worldwide industry executives.
Says James Cassidy, UK head of Alberts, “This is a tremendous honour and privilege for both The Answer and the Alberts label. With a new album due later this year we look forward to taking the band to a whole new level of international success”
Elsewhere, The Answer’s international success continues to build and after a great year in Japan, they were voted as the No.2 Best New Artist 2007 in Player Magazine’s readers pole. The No.1 is a domestic act, therefore rendering The Answer effectively the No.1 international band for Best New Artist’ ahead of KT Tunstall, Mika and The Fratellis! Not bad for four lads from Northern Ireland who without radio support have built a worldwide reputation like no other debut act.
2007 was an incredible year for The Answer who supported Aerosmith, the Rolling Stones and The Who to name but a few. With their profile continuing to grow and with a new album currently being written, 2008 will see them reach the dizzying heights of superstardom that they deserve.
“It’s all here: fretboard-shredding solos, jet engine vocals, a riff which will propel the internal Beavis and Butthead of anyone with warm blood into devil’s horn salutes. Marvellous.”

Quite possibly the most bizarre video of 2008, has to go to the progressive metal band, What’s He Building In There?
Music Video for Group’s Debut Single Features Canada’s Largest Indoor Playground, 90’s Fly Dancers, and Time Travel
Canadian progressive-metal newcomers, What’s He Building In There (WHBIT?), have announced more dates in support of their self-titled debut album, which was released earlier this year on Year of The Sun Records. The band will hit the road in late January with Metal Blade Recording Artist Epicurean for a string of tour dates.
“We’re getting tingly feelings in our bathing-suit areas just thinking about playing with Epicurean,” howls philanthropist and WHBIT drummer, Liam Epps. “Seeing them perform those songs on stage night after night will be as euphoric and inspiring as realizing that it was just a wet one, and that you, in fact, did not poop your pants.”
In keeping with the haunting Tom Waits composition that spawned their name, What’s He Building In There are a deranged group of genre-bending musical madness. Drawing influences from the contrasting worlds of Mike Patton, Tool, Between the Buried and Me, Frank Zappa and many other innovators, the band has synthesized their many facets into one gripping and demented masterpiece. What’s He Building In There hail from Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.
The band has also revealed a new video for their single “Avian Taxi”, taken from their Year of the Sun debut. The video was shot after hours at KidZone Family Fun Center, Canada’s largest indoor playground, with members of What’s He Building In There donning a wide range of costumes (including a lobster, turtle, tree gecko, chicken, and a psychotic carnival host) as part of the video’s psychedelic dream-like concept. The video can be viewed below:
Minneapolis-based symphonic metal band EPICUREAN will release their debut album, “A Consequence of Design”, on May 4th, 2008 through Metal Blade Records. Formed in early 2004, EPICUREAN quickly gained the attention in the Minneapolis metal scene and developed a reputation for being a powerful and unpredictable live act. The buzz about the band caught the ear of Metal Blade Records who quickly signed the band and put them out on the road with Finnish metallers TO/DIE/FOR.
