BLACK STAR RIDERS Check In From KISS Tour In New Video

BLACK STAR RIDERS, the new band featuring THIN LIZZY members Ricky Warwick, Damon Johnson, Scott Gorham and Marco Mendoza together with drummer Jimmy DeGrasso (ALICE COOPER, MEGADETH), have been opening up for KISS during their Australian Monster 2013 tour. Ricky Warwick and Damon Johnson check in from the road below:

Black Star Riders recently announced All Hell Breaks Loose as the title of their debut album on Nuclear Blast Entertainment, which will be released worldwide on the following dates:

May 21st – Japan
May 22nd – Sweden
May 24th – Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Finland, Norway, Australia
May 27th – UK, France, BeNeLux, Poland, Czech Republic, Denmark, Spain, Portugal, Hungary, Greece, Ireland
May 28th – US, Canada, Italy, South America

About the origin of the album title, frontman Ricky Warwick states: “I was watching a documentary about World War II bombers and saw the name painted on the side of one of the aircraft. The name just resonated with me and it seem to encapsulate the turmoil that we, as a society, are currently experiencing. The past few years have been such a wild ride and now with the release of the album, it sounded like a bad-ass album title that summed up what Black Star Riders is all about.”

Produced and mixed by the legendary Kevin Shirley (LED ZEPPELIN, IRON MAIDEN, AEROSMITH, RUSH), the track listing for All Hell Breaks Loose is:
‘All Hell Breaks Loose’
‘Bound For Glory’
‘Kingdom Of The Lost’
‘Bloodshot’
‘Kissin’ The Ground’
‘Hey Judas’
‘Hoodoo Voodoo’
‘Valley Of The Stones’
‘Someday Salvation’
‘Before The War’
‘Blues Ain’t So Bad’

The album will be released as a standard CD and also as a special edition digi-pak featuring a bonus track ‘Right To Be Wrong’ and a Making of DVD.

A 24-minute compilation of behind-the-scenes video reports from the band’s studio time in Los Angeles can be viewed on YouTube:
