With a lot of hype on Whitesnake in relation to their new album in the works, “Flesh & Blood,” news has risen that the album will be pushed back, resulting in a release date sometime in 2019. The bands label, Frontiers Music Srl blames the delay on “technical issues,” and is sure to be bummer for fans looking to get their fix of new Whitesnake music.
“It is with great disappointment that, following technical issues whilst mixing the new ‘Flesh & Blood’ album, Whitesnake and Frontiers have mutually agreed to delay the album release until early 2019,” said in an official statement made by the record label.
“[The new album] has all the necessary Whitesnake elements that I need to call it Whitesnake, but with a vibrant, fresh coat of paint, said singer David Coverdale. “Reb Beach, [he and I had] never written together until this project,” he said. “So it’s a family affair. It really is cool. I’m very excited for people to hear it.”
“[During the recording], I got that horrible H3 flu, which took me out for, I think, about six weeks before I started to feel like myself again,” he said. “It was horrifying. It was that strain of flu that the anti-flu vaccination didn’t cover. It was just an evil, evil, evil strain of flu.”
“There’s gonna some real fun elements paying respect and nod to Whitesnake’s past, but certainly not as dark and as gritty as [Whitesnake’s] ‘Burn’ video [from ‘The Purple Album’].”
