Nic Maeder has promised fans a classic rock riff to remember on Gotthard’s brand new single Bad News.

The powerful frontman steals the show on the second song to be lifted from forthcoming album #13.

And Maeder told Rushonrock: “We wrote this one with Eric Bazilian – it’s a song about how people love to be around you when you’re successful and love to kick you when you’re down! 

“It has a great classic rock riff.”

Gotthard kick off their German tour in April where they will be joined by Magnum as their special guests.

The band returns to Switzerland with Shakra following the run of German shows.

#13 is released on March 13, 2020.
