The first single and video from the new record entitled “Shut Up & Kiss Me” will be released worldwide in 2019 prior to the “Flesh & Blood” world tour.

Founded in 1978 by former Deep Purple singer David Coverdale, the band have earned multi-platinum albums including “Trouble,” “Lovehunter,” “Ready And Willing” and “Come An’ Get It” through to the explosive hard rock of the revamped ‘Snake sound with the multi-platinum “Slide It In” and having just celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2017, 1987’s self-titled mega-million-selling smash-hit album, “Whitesnake.” From these albums came multiple top 10 hits worldwide, including two No. 1 singles with “Here I Go Again” and “Is This Love” as well as the unforgettable hammer of “Still Of The Night” all leading to virtual 24-hour domination of MTV around the globe.

In 2017, to mark the 30th anniversary of their most successful album “Whitesnake,” a Deluxe Package was released on Rhino Records to colossal success.

The partnership with Rhino has continued with the recent release of “Unzipped,” a collection of rare and unreleased acoustic performances from the last 20 years, a truly extraordinary opportunity to hear some of the Whitesnake classics as you have never heard them before.

Bombast, bravado, talent and passion have helped establish Whitesnake as the perennial platinum favorite they have become and they’re back with a vengeance in 2019. The world-renowned group featuring David Coverdale (vocals), Reb Beach (guitar), Joel Hoekstra (guitar), Michael Devin (bass), Tommy Aldrige (drums) and Michele Luppi (Keys) have just finished recording their 13th Studio record.
