Lead singer David Coverdale made the announcement and revealed a May release for the band's 13th studio album, Flesh & Blood, with the first taste of the album - the single "Shut Up and Kiss Me" coming earlier in the new year.

Coverdale claims that Flesh & Blood will be the best Whitesnake album yet.

"I know that's clichéd stuff, but I know what I'm talking about," Coverdale said. "I should after almost 50 years."

Coverdale went on to say the new album "has all the necessary Whitesnake elements that I need to call it Whitesnake, but with a vibrant, fresh coat of paint."

The upcoming tour (see itinerary below) will kick off in mid-April, and will continue the band's 40th Anniversary celebration.
