The Answer, Irish rockers from County Down, who recently finished up touring North American and Europe with legendary rock band AC/DC, have announced new shows in New York and Los Angeles in late April and early May.

The band play the Troubador in L.A on April 29 and Don Hills in New York on May 5.

They finished a 42 show run of the U.S at the end of January 31, which included dates at New York’s Madison Square Garden and The Forum in L.A. Currently the band are in Europe to continue on their "Black Ice" tour in support of the release of their new album, “Everyday Demons.”

“Everyday Demons” is The Answer's second album, but their first U.S. release. The album, which was released March 31, was recorded last summer in Los Angeles with producer John Travis, who was also worked with Kid Rock.

It’s been a busy and exciting time for the band. In the last six months they've appeared in Rolling Stone and Spin Magazine as well as having played on The Late Show with David Letterman.

Billboard recently named the band one of the "Best Bets of 09." They also made name from themselves when their song "Never Too Late" in the video game, “Guitar Hero IV: World Tour.”

The Answer got together in spring 2000, signed a contract with the legendary Australian rock label, Albert Productions in 2005 and brought out their debut album, Rise, in 2006. "It took us three or four years to really get noticed," guitarist Paul Mahon says. "But then it all started to happen at once."

The band has also performed with icons such as the Rolling Stones, The Who and Aerosmith, playing celebrated headlining tours in England, Japan and Australia.
