Legendary rock band WHITESNAKE has set "Forevermore" as the title of its new album, tentatively due at the end of March 2011 via Frontiers Records. Check out the cover artwork below.

Regarding the CD's title, WHITESNAKE mainman David Coverdale stated, "Don't forget, 'tis ONE word. Otherwise it sounds like a bleedin' Valentine's Day card, which it ain't!"

According to a press release, WHITESNAKE's follow-up to 2008's "Good To Be Bad" will be "a solid, natural progression from the band's last opus, which was awarded by the influential Classic Rock magazine as 'Best Album of the Year' in 2008." "As always, we want to take it to the next level," stated David Coverdale. "I feel that with the last album we achieved a strong WHITESNAKE 'cocktail' that comfortably embraced and mixed all the previous musical aspects and styles of the band's history, while taking our identity a little further... all on one album."

"The new songs are in the very familiar and recognizable WHITESNAKE territory of soulful, bluesy, melodic power rock, with a couple of ballads thrown in for good measure," the singer said. "It can't be a WHITESNAKE album without ballads, mate!"

Good to Be Bad is one of my least favorite albums I've heard in the last few years, so I'll tread carefully on this one. The 1987 self-titled and Slip of the Tongue are still classics.

I had nothing against Good To Be Bad. But then, I like their heavier sound with Aldrich.

Yeah, I generally enjoy Good to Be Bad. Definitely a few mediocre songs, but overall I like it.

I haven't heard Good To Be Bad, so I have no idea what to expect from this. But Whitesnake are the shit so I'm sure it'll be alright.
