With a career spanning 45 years and 22 albums, rockersNazareth are back with Rock 'n' Roll Telephone, which will be released on June 3, 2014.
The band's 23rd studio album, their first since 2011's Big Dogz, features 11 original heavy rockers and bluesy ballads. The Deluxe digipack edition will include a second disc with two additional studio recordings and five live tracks, and will also be available in a double LP gate fold vinyl version.
A welcome return to form, this may be the last album to feature original singer Dan McCafferty, who has refrained from touring due to health issues. If this does prove to be Dan's last stand, he retires on a high note with his legacy as one of rock's greatest vocalists assured.
Having initially broken in to the London-dominated music scene of the '70s with their unique brand of rock (they were named Melody Maker's 'Brightest Hope' in 1973), the band have spent over forty years touring the world and releasing new music. One of rock's most enduring acts, they have played everywhere from Russia to a mountain top gig in the Austrian Alps last year, and continue with a resilience and longevity that is almost unmatched.
The band have sold in excess of 30 million albums worldwide and have cracked the Top 10 in the U.S., Canada and Europe, having had many number ones in countries too numerous to list.
Nazareth are an acknowledged influence on superstars Guns 'n' Roses and countless other hard rockers who have followed in their wake, assuring their place amongst the greats of rock 'n' roll.
