The first single is “Long Time Coming,” which guitarist Rick Nielsen tells Billboard is the band’s “interpretation of Slade and MC5 and AC/DC and Aerosmith — a lot of riffs that are reminiscent of The Move, but they’re not steals. It’s just, like, all the bands we like.”
Cheap Trick released its last album, Bang, Zoom, Crazy… Hello, in April 2016. With We’re All Alright! coming out just 14 months later, it’s the first time the band has released new albums in back-to-back years since Standing on the Edge in 1985 and The Doctor in 1986. Nielsen says the band is headed back into the studio in May with the possibility of another album coming out next year.
