2nd December 2007
Showaddywaddy's new album will be released in stages. Firstly there will be a web-site link for fans to pre-order a special limited edition Box Set which will include the album, a special booklet and the DVD as a bonus item.

Also included, and only for pre-orders, will be an exclusive entry into a competition to fly out to Memphis to visit the band at Sun Studios. The limited edition will be restricted to 500 copies. If demand is exceptional further box-sets will be made available at a later date, but without the competition entry.

The initial release of the CD will be at the end of March and will only be available by mail order and at tour dates which commence Spring 2008. The CD and DVD will then be made available on general release from June.


2nd September 2007
New album details announced on official Showaddywaddy website:

A brand new Showaddywaddy album will be released during 2008. The band return to their rock 'n' roll roots with an album of around 18 songs originally recorded for the legendary Sun Records label. The guys will start work on the album in the UK during November and then finish off at Sun Studios in Memphis - hoping to give the tracks a more authentic feel - immediately afterwards. This album will be Showaddywaddy's interpretations of their favourite Sun Recordings from the mid 50's/early 60's. Some of the tracks will be previously unissued songs recorded for the Sun label, which the band feel are unearthed 'gems'!

Ultimately the album promises to be Showaddywaddy's return to the roots of rock 'n' roll and the band are really excited to be involved in this project. Also in the pipeline, the guys are hoping to do a short series of gigs featuring the new material especially for their loyal followers. These gigs will be totally different to the normal SWW format. Details will follow as soon as they are available!
Dave Bartram says, "All in all this is something we've always wanted to do, and we are over the moon to have this opportunity."
