Loud, proud and still going: new album from Nazareth due out on 15th April

Veteran Scottish hard-rock band, Nazareth, have released a new single, ‘Strange Days’, ahead of a brand-new studio album out on 15th April.

Surviving The Law is the band’s twenty-fourth album since Nazareth formed in 1968 in Dunfermline. After the departure of founding vocalist, Dan McCafferty, in 2013 – for health reasons, there were some questions about the band’s future viability with new vocalist, Linton Osborne, joining and then rapidly leaving after less than a year. However, with the arrival of new lead singer, Carl Sentance, the band found a new lease of life. Sentence has brought a real energy to the band and Nazareth continues to be a popular live draw and their 2018 album, Tattooed On My Brain, picked up dozens of favourable reviews.

The band today are founding member, Pete Agnew (bass), Carl Sentance (vocals), Jimmy Murrison (guitar) and Lee Agnew (drums). All four members have contributed their share of song-writing and, like the previous album, this latest one has been produced by Yann Rouiller at Sub Station in the band’s home town of Dunfermline, Scotland.

  1. We were just discussing Nazareth recently when Max from PowerPop blog did a post on “Love Hurts”, one of the best remakes in my book.

    I hadn’t realized Nazareth are still around, including one founding member. Guitarist Jimmy Murrison and drummer Lee Agnew have been part of the line-up for 20-plus years – remarkable!

    1. Yeah they seem a lot more full on heavy hard rock in an AC/DC type mould these days when I saw them live recently. But generally sound great and definitely on a new lease of life.
