CHEAP TRICK Debuts 'Long Time Coming' Single From 'We're All Alright!' Album

New CHEAP TRICK Album 'We're All Alright!' due June 16.
 
"Y'know, we always write, but it's more fun to write for a project and write for a reason," guitarist Rick Nielsen tells Billboard. "We have a company (Big Machine Records) that believes in us and they like the work and they're letting us make more records, which is cool. Making records is one of the ambitions we've always had. I don't think the desire has ever gone away."
 
Cheap Trick recorded We're All Alright! -- whose title, of course, references the 1978 hit "Surrender" and 1999's "That '70s Song" -- with Julian Raymond, who also helmed Bang, Zoom, Crazy...Hello. Its 10 tracks (13 on the deluxe edition) hail from the group's past and present, with older, previously unrecorded songs such as "Radio Lover," "Lolita" and "She's Alright" sitting alongside material written and recorded specifically for the album.
 
"Long Time Coming," a crunchy hard rocker driven by a Kinks-flavored riff, is a bit of a one-song tribute to Cheap Trick's influential forebears. "It's our interpretation of Slade and MC5 and AC/DC and Aerosmith -- a lot of riffs that are reminiscent of the Move, but they're not steals," Nielsen says. "It's just, like, all the bands we like." The song also features a synthesizer underbelly that was a signature in "Surrender," "Dream Police" and other Cheap Trick songs.
 
Nielsen, meanwhile, says another new album in 2018 is a distinct possibility. "Starting in May we're going back in the studio," he says. "There's stuff around and there's some ideas that never did get fleshed out, which we hope to. It's exciting."
 
We're All Alright! will be available for pre-order starting May 5, with "Long Time Coming" and "Lolita" as instant grat tracks. Both songs are available now for individual purchase, and the group will offer more early purchase perks via a PleadgeMusic campaign.  Meanwhile, Cheap Trick will be promoting the album with a summer tour with Foreigner and John Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience; Foreigner and Cheap Trick will both be celebrating 40th anniversaries, Cheap Trick for the release of its first two albums in 1977.
 

 
The full track list for We're All Alright! features:
You Got It Going On
Long Time Coming
Nowhere
Radio Lover
Lolita
Brand New Name On An Old Tattoo
Floating Down
She's Alright
Listen To Me

LEGENDARY POWER POP BAND ENTERS CLASS OF 2016 FOLLOWING THEIR FIRST NOMINATION
 
HONOREE CEREMONY SCHEDULED FOR APRIL 8, 2016
 
HUGELY ANTICIPATED NEW ALBUM “BANG ZOOM CRAZY… HELLO” DUE IN 2016
 
NASHVILLE, TN (December 17, 2015) – Celebrating a long-anticipated induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Cheap Trick today also announces an exclusive new deal with leading global independent record label Big Machine Records (Taylor Swift, Steven Tyler, Tim McGraw). The legendary band is currently hard at work finishing their Big Machine debut album titled Bang Zoom Crazy… Hello, slated for release on April 1, 2016. Produced by GRAMMY-winning producer Julian Raymond, the album marks Cheap Trick’s 17th studio album and first in more than five years.
 
“We can’t thank the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame enough for honoring Cheap Trick. Thanks to all the fans who have supported us for all these years and to the Hall of Fame members who cast their votes. We are excited and honored,” said Cheap Trick bass guitarist Tom Petersson. 
 
“Coinciding with their entry into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, I am beyond proud and excited to announce that Cheap Trick are the newest members of the Big Machine Records family,” said Big Machine Label Group President and CEO Scott Borchetta.  “As a band, they’ve never stopped rock’n the free world and they play every night with as much conviction as their first power-pop-punk club shows from the mid ’70’s.  I can’t wait for Cheap Trick fans everywhere to have the new album”
 
Eligible since 2002, Cheap Trick will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame after being nominated for the first time this year. More than 800 artists, historians and music-industry professionals determine the annual honorees, who are considered qualified 25 years after releasing their first single or album – 1990, for the newest crop of nominees. The 2016 Induction Ceremony is scheduled for April 8.
 
Cheap Trick are an indisputable American institution, beloved around the globe since 1973 for their instantly identifiable, hugely influential, brand of pop rock ‘n’ roll. The band – Robin Zander (vocals, rhythm guitar), Rick Nielsen (lead guitar), Tom Petersson (bass guitar), and Daxx Nielsen (drums) – are truly one of a kind, power pop pioneers with an unparalleled streak of certifiably classic tunes, spanning “Surrender” and “I Want You To Want Me” to “Dream Police” and the worldwide #1 hit single, “The Flame.”
 
Now well into their fourth decade, the band is among the most active and successful in music history with featured appearances on over 20 movie soundtracks, more than 40 international gold and platinum certifications, a myriad of awards and industry honors, and total record sales in excess of 20 million.
 
Surely among rock’s greatest live acts, Cheap Trick continues to spend much of their time on the road. Upcoming dates include Napa, CA’s Uptown Theatre (December 18); Stateline, NV’s Harrah’s Hotel Casino – Lake Tahoe (December 19) and San Jose, CA’s City National Civic (December 20). A major North American headline tour will be announced in support of the new album – for news and ticket information, please visit www.cheaptrick.com/tour-dates.
