website-photoIt’s been a funny kinda year.
When we started out in January we weren’t sure if we would be continuing as a band but after playing some rehearsals with Linton —–
well you all know what happened.
Because it took some time to put things back together, we didn’t start booking shows until later in the year than we normally do so it ended up with us touring a lot less than previous years.
This won’t be the case in 2015.
We still managed to see quite a few of you and were delighted with the reception you gave us.
It was always going to be difficult introducing a new singer but we were pleasantly surprised with the reaction to our new guy.
He was very, very happy too ; as you can imagine he was more than a little nervous taking over the middle mic from Dan.
Anyway, just as we were having a really good time and things were coming together beautifully onstage, Linton contracted a throat virus and we had to end up pulling the second half of our tour.
Like I said ‘it’s been a funny kinda year’ and we won’t be sorry to see it end.
However, the prospects for next year are looking good and we’re hoping to have a hammering ‘healthy’ start with the UK dates in January.
I’d like to thank you all for the encouragement and good vibes you gave us throughout what was a very trying and important year.
With all the ups and downs it was comforting to know you were behind us and we will never forget that.
Everyone close to us who works personally with us and makes
things happen in any number of different ways have been outstanding this year. We could never thank you enough.
It only remains for me now to wish you all, on behalf of Jimmy, Lee, Linton and myself, a very happy Christmas and peaceful New Year.


naz-europeIt has been more than two and a half years since we did a German/Swiss/Austrian tour and we have missed you all very much.
We have been so used to doing the tour every year (usually around the same time) that it felt strange not doing a Spring tour in 2013.
Anyway, we’re all really looking forward to the Winter tour this year for a special reason and that is the fact that it will be our first shows where you will get to see Linton in action as our lead singer.
He has heard the band and crew raving about past Euro tours and can’t wait to join in the fun.
Also we have Finland at the end of the tour. I never know whether Finland is Europe, Scandinavia or just plain Finland.
Whatever, we’re looking forward to seeing you guys too.
This year started slowly as we put the band back together again with the new line up and it took the whole Canadian tour to get everything to gel properly and finally get the result we were striving for.
By the time we got out to do some festival shows in Switzerland/Austria and Romania in August the band was cookin’ with a new lease of life and we could feel ourselves relax and begin to really enjoy just being up there playing together.

Ladies and gentlemen, here it is: the first excerpt from interviews we filmed with all 4 band members in the studio where they recorded the new album, talking about ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Telephone’ and their amazing 45 year career. More clips to follow as well as details about a special “listening party” which will involve the full album but only for a limited period of time.

dan-mcafferty nazarethDear Friends,
I would like to thank you all for the support and fun you have given me for the past 40+some odd years.
I am so sorry my health has forced me to stop touring,but i hope Nazareth can continue with a new singer and that you will support him as you did me.
I would especially like to thank Pete,Jimmy and Lee,my band brothers and,of course,all the crew;Tam,Phil,Stevie,Rab,Blair and Mark.Also Alan and Steve,our agents.
On a happier note-a new album is being mixed as we speak.
I think it’s fab and hope you all will agree.
Thanks for all the love you have sent the last few weeks.
Will miss you all.NAZ RULE!
Thanks, Dan


We sadly have to tell you all that Dan has been forced to retire due to ill health.

He suffers from C.O.P.D. ( Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease).

It has gotten worse lately and after trying to play a festival in Switzerland last weekend Dan found it impossible to continue after performing only three songs.

In the dressing room afterwards he told the band that he couldn’t go on any longer.

We’ll keep you updated on further developments.

2012 has been a productive year, with the band managing to find time to record two brand new tracks alongside a very busy touring schedule.

The band will soon be releasing ‘God of the Mountain’; a fantastic high-energy cracker that is guaranteed to hit the right spot with rock fans young and old!

‘God of the Mountain’ has been adopted by the Austrian Ski Federation as their official song for the 2012/2013-ski season.
This will include the World Championships in 2013.
The perfect soundtrack if you want to throw yourself down a mountain at high speed or if you just want to kick back with some good music!
Soon everybody will be giving “Sky high praise” to the “God of the Mountain”.

The Austrian Ski Federation will host a big press conference in Vienna on November 5th in order to launch ‘God of the Mountain’ to the media.
Nazareth shall be special guests at this event.

‘God of the Mountain’ will be available for download in Austria, Switzerland and Germany from Friday 26th October on iTunes, Amazon and Deezer.
The track will then be available globally on hundreds of digital services from November 19th.

2013 should see the release of a beautiful new track titled
‘Clean and Clear and True’. Produced by RGL (Roots Gone Lost) this song has a great vibe to it.
The track shall be used to raise awareness for a brand new charity called
‘We Just Help’.
The charity aims to provide safe, clean water for people in third world countries and will be launched in the summer of 2013.

The band are currently working on new material whenever possible and intend to record and release a new album at some point in 2013.

And if you can’t wait until then, come and check out a show!

Peace and Love, Brothers and Sisters.
