Whitesnake name new album

'Forevermore' is scheduled for March 2011 release

Whitesnake have named their 11th studio album and scheduled it to be released in March next year.

The album is entitled ‘Forevermore’ and is the follow-up to 2008’s ‘Good To Be Bad’. A specific release date has not been finalised.

Singer David Coverdale said of the new album: “The new songs are in the very familiar and recognisable Whitesnake territory of soulful, bluesy, melodic power rock, with a couple of ballads thrown in for good measure. It can’t be a Whitesnake album without ballads!”

The band recently announced that they will tour the UK in June 2011, with six gigs booked.
