Whitesnake has been forced to postpone the release of their new album until 2019 due to “technical difficulties”.
Frontiers Music, home to many classic rockers, made the announcement on Monday (April 30) morning:
It is with great disappointment that, following technical issues whilst mixing the new “Flesh and Blood” album, Whitesnake and Frontiers have mutually agreed to delay the album release until early 2019.
The release of the new studio record is to coincide with the Whitesnake Flesh & Blood world tour.
Whitesnake would like to express their sincere regrets to our Fans All Over The World for any and all disappointment and promise the album and Tour will be worth waiting for.
The new album was originally promised for this spring and then was moved to summer. Titled Flesh & Blood, it was a followup to 2015’s The Purple Album which saw David Coverdale and company covering the music of Deep Purple. Their last original album was 2011’s Forevermore.
Whitesnake did announce they would be releasing the track “Shut Up & Kiss Me” before their upcoming tour with Foreigner and have filmed a music video for the song.
