Press release:

The band known for creating some of the ‘80s most memorable arena rock anthems, bic-wielding ballads, and scintillating videos is back for more. On April 22nd, Whitesnake will release Good To Be Bad via SPV, an album that proves that despite the decade plus lay-off between studio albums, Coverdale and company are as ferocious as ever.

“For me, it has all the elements, all the ingredients that I enjoy about Whitesnake,” says Coverdale. “It’s a very solid, muscular, melodic rock record with a couple of fine ballads, so there’s a little tenderness when the moment calls for it, and of course the ballads help balance out the chest beaters! I find it a very complete piece of work, actually. It covers a lot of musical ground, a positive chapter in the Book of Whitesnake.” As evidenced by such rockers as “All For Love” and “Lay Down Your Love,” as well as the ballads “All I Want All I Need” and “Summer Rain,” Good To Be Bad is vintage Whitesnake, with a modern, contemporary edge.

The line-up joining Coverdale for his much-anticipated return certainly meets the star-power of Whitesnake’s earlier line-ups. Guitarists Doug Aldrich (Dio, Lion, Hurricane) and Reb Beach (Winger, Dokken, Night Ranger), bassist Uriah Duffy (Christina Aguilera, Travers/Appice), keyboardist Timothy Drury (Don Henley, Stevie Nicks), and drummer Chris Frazier (Steve Vai, Edgar Winter) round out Whitesnake ‘08.

In addition to being Whitesnake’s leader since 1978, Coverdale has sung with some of rock’s most respected and legendary names, including Deep Purple and Jimmy Page (as one half of Coverdale-Page). But it is his work with Whitesnake that personifies Coverdale best, due to a steady stream of MTV/radio mega-hits, including “Fool for Your Loving,” “Slow An’ Easy,” “Still of the Night,” “Here I Go Again,” “Is This Love?,” “Give Me All Your Love,” and “The Deeper the Love.”

Long considered one of rock’s top live acts, Whitesnake will be embarking on an extensive tour in support of Good To Be Bad shortly after its release – including a UK co-headlining trek with Def Leppard in June and July. And if the new album is any indication, the shows are poised to be some of the group’s strongest-ever, as the new material will undoubtedly fit perfectly next to the classics. Whitesnake is back and ready to reclaim their hard rock crown. And boy, it sure feels ‘Good To Be Bad.’
