The love and passion for their music has never faltered. Re-charged and re-focused, Great White channels their raw, sweet and all-at-once dangerous sound into Elation, the band’s 12th studio album. Elation thrives on Great White’s signature grit and blues-hued sound, only marked with a new synergy.
GREAT WHITE is founder and lead guitarist, Mark Kendall, Michael Lardie (keys, guitar), Audie Desbrow (drums), Scott Snyder (bass) and lead singer, Terry Ilous. GREAT WHITE has sold over 10 million albums worldwide. Their song arsenal also includes the smash hit “Once Bitten, Twice Shy,” “Rock Me,” “Save Your Love,” “The Angel Song,” and “Mistabone,” Visit OfficialGreatWhite.com for additional information.
Elation is just the recording of what live audiences will see and hear as a band with a new mission. “This is a new birth of the band,” Desbrow says. “I wanted to call the album ‘Tabula Rasa’ which means rebirth, but we went for ‘Elation’ because of the euphoria in the atmosphere. It’s a fresh and healthier start than ever before. I’m like a kid in a candy store.”
Kendall, one of rock’s most notable guitarists, echoed Desbrow’s pure excitement. “The energy in the studio is amazing,” Kendall says. “This is the most excited I’ve been since I was nine-years-old and got my first guitar. It's remarkable to be doing our third record with Frontiers Records and to feel the love and support from Serafino and his team. They are truly part of the Great White family."
Lardie, who also served as Elation’s co-producer with Kendall, applauded the band’s teamwork in the studio. He was struck by the group’s song writing approach and enthusiasm, and assures fans will embrace the record.
“The difference in this studio experience was simple. Everyone was completely present and contributed to the making of this album. As a producer, I feel my part is to get the best out of each of us and I got better than anyone’s best!”
