Following a lengthy hiatus, the band’s reunion with a new line-up and the recording of the 3rd album “They Never Come Back”, ALLISON prove that they are still a steam train of a band!
Whereas the band’s releases back in the 90’s were often tending to follow the short-term trend trying to serve the mainstream with trivial rock ballads, the songwriting on the latest album is pretty much straight forward without making any compromises.
The songs on “They Never Come Back” got a bit harder, compared to earlier releases, but still leave room for influences of, e.g., blues or country (as in “Crank It Up”, “Edge Of Golden Days” or “Blackbird”).
ALLISON are recollecting their roots of guitar-driven rock ‘n’ roll spiced up with rare keyboards/Hammond and are still focussing on strong melodies and uniqueness.
Since the entire album was written and produced “first come, first served” by the band itself, there was only a minimum pre-production.
According to the band’s experience chances are that overdoing this process is quite often resulting in killing the song’s original spirit.
“They Never Come Back” was recorded by Tommy Vetterli (Eluveitie, Cellar Darling, Kreator) and Claudio Cueni (Beware Of Darkness, The Temptations, Boyz II Men) at New Sound Studios, Switzerland. The latter was also responsible for the mixing and mastering at Candyhouse East Studio.
