Swiss rockers Gotthard will release their suitably titled 13th studio album, “#13″, on March 13th through Nuclear Blast Records.”#13” is available for pre-order on CD (Jewelcase) with 13 tracks and as a special edition collector’s box (including a digipack with 2 bonus tracks, a bandana and a poster-booklet) as well as a double LP with two bonus tracks.

Amongst the usual straight up rock and roll that Gotthard are known for, “#13” offers remarkable variety between songs – such as the powerful opener ‘Bad News’, the fast hard’n’heavy ‘Every Time I Die’, the straight to the point lyrical message of ‘Man On A Mission’, old-school blues-rock with ‘Another Last Time’, epic Ballads like ‘I Can Say I’m Sorry’ and unbridled 70’s psychedelia with ‘Rescue Me’. Aside from the obvious standout of the record, the cover of ABBA’s world-famous Hit ‘SOS’, the first single ‘Missteria’ confidently displays the band’s passion for experimentation that is on show throughout “#13”.

The eccentric track, that was written in collaboration with none other than Francis Rossi himself, combines an unmistakeable rock structure with flourishes of oriental instrumentation and is a perfect basis for the video, that was recorded at the Madi-Zelt in Berlin. Exotic mysticism, the sense of illusion and sensual dancers, that remind the watcher of Salma Hayek’s legendary appearance in ‘From Dusk Till Dawn’, frame the band’s performance between velvet, deceptive mirrors, fog and fascinating LED-effects. An extremely opulent clip, matching the breathtaking first single. Watch it here:

 

Leo Leoni comments: “It´s been great fun writing a track with Francis again and with ‘Missteria’ I believe we delivered a real killer!”
