Mike Tramp at work in studio

Former White Lion frontman Mike Tramp has confirmed he’s at work on the follow-up to 2014 album Museum.

And he says the material will be solid classic rock, more akin to 1997 debut Capricorn, without the acoustic elements that featured in his recent output.

Tramp tells Classic Rock: “It’s the completion of a trilogy that I call, ‘This Is Me, Take It Or Leave It – I Ain’t Going Nowhere Else.’

“It’s a natural progression from 2013’s Cobblestone Street and 2014’s Museum, but it’s for sure a pure rock album. The word ‘acoustic’ will not be part of the description.”

He’s working with long-time producer, engineer and guitarist Soen Andersen, their Rock’n’Roll Circus drummer Morten Hellborn, old-hand keyboardist Morten Buchholz and bassist Jesper Haugaard.

Tramp adds: “The album will be out in August, followed by a European tour from September onward.”

More details will be revealed in due course.

Martin Kielty

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
