Mike & The Mechanics "The Road"


On April 11, 2011, Mike & The Mechanics will release "The Road", their first studio album since 2004's Rewired. In the past decade, Mike & The Mechanics has truly evolved in virtually every sense of the word, but perhaps never more so than in the past year. After the passing of co-lead singer Paul Young in July 2000 and the departure of fellow front man Paul Carrack in 2005, the future of The Mechanics seemed uncertain at best.

Thankfully for Mechanics fans, founding member Mike Rutherford carried on with long-time Producer Chris Neil and began recruiting a new team of players to shape the next generation of the band.

2011 finds Mike Rutherford's newly rebuilt Mechanics with a new album and aptly titled 'Hit the Road' European tour. The Road features the additions of popular British R&B/Pop singer/songwriter Andrew Roachford and Canadian singer Tim Howar who have taken up the mantle from Carrack and Young. The Mechanics is rounded out with Gary Wallis on drums, Anthony Drennan on guitars and bass and, of course, Mike Rutherford on guitars and bass.
