Black Star Riders are pleased to announce the release of their third studio album, “Heavy Fire”, in February 2017. The band will support the album with a full UK and Eire tour in March 2017.
The band previous album, “The Killer Instinct”, was released in 2015 to widespread critical acclaim and went on to score multiple radio playlists. A solid year of worldwide touring culminated in December 2015 in an UK arena tour alongside Def Leppard and Whitesnake.
2016 saw the band return to the studio with “The Killer Instinct’s” producer Nick Raskulinecz (Rush, The Foo Fighters, Mastodon), at his studio just outside Nashville. The resultant album is Black Star Riders most accomplished work to date. From the immediate riffs of album opener “Heavy Fire” to the instant hooks of first single “When The Night Comes In”, from the dirty bass groove of “Thinking About You Could Get Me Killed” to the familiar and trademark dual guitars of Gorham and Johnson on “Testify Or Say Goodbye”, this is an album that will further cement BSR’s reputation as one of the world premiere rock acts.
“We’ve accomplished so much in a short period of time,” Damon says. “Our efforts in Europe are truly starting to pay off. My hope is that this is the album that gets us at least a foot-in-the-door in the USA rock scene…which is long overdue.”
