NEWS: Black Star Riders new album and tour including Belfast March slot

BLACK Star Riders play Belfast on March 5th as part of a full UK tour in support of their new album ‘Heavy Fire’, set for release in early 2017.

After a full year off the road, Black Star Riders  (Ricky Warwick, Scott Gorham, Damon Johnson, Robert Crane and Jimmy DeGrasso) will play a 16-date UK & Ireland run, joined by Gun and The Amorettes.

Ricky Warwick said: “It seems like ages since we did the Leppard / Whitesnake tour so we are all really looking forward to be back out on the road with BSR.

“Our third album will be out just prior to the dates so it’s going to be great to play tracks from that along with favorites from the first two records also.  Having my old friends from Gun and The Amorettes out with us too is just icing on the cake to make a great tour!”

The band are currently in the studio in Nashville, once again with producer Nick Raskulinecz putting the finishing touches to ‘Heavy Fire’. Scott Gorham said: “It’s great to be back with Nick, after such a great job on The Killer Instinct it was a no brainer to continue the relationship and this album is going to blow everyone away”.

Following on from their critically acclaimed albums ‘All Hell Breaks Loose’ and ‘The Killer Instinct’ which have paved the way for Black Star Riders to be recognized as a power force in the modern day of rock n’ roll, ‘Heavy Fire’ will be once again released by Nuclear Blast Entertainment.  The band have also brought in Pledgemusic, one of the most innovative and successful platforms of the modern music world, to give fans extra special product and experiences to go along with the album’s release.

The tour lands in Ireland on Saturday, March 4th, with a slot at the Academy, Dublin before playing the Limelight on Sunday, March 5th.
