Black Star Riders To Record New Album

2013 saw the release of the Black Star Riders debut album, "All Hell Breaks Loose," and the band also toured throughout Europe and Scandinavia supporting the release.

Now it is time for the guys to continue with this momentum and create a follow-up album. Scott Gorham sums it up: "The fan response has been better then we could have hoped. I haven’t had this much fun in years!"

When it comes to the team behind the soundboard, Black Star Riders decided to change things up this time around. Taking over the production reins will be Def Leppard front man Joe Elliott. Adding to the dream team will be long time Leppard sound guru Ronan McHugh.

Ricky Warwick chimes in on the reason Joe was tapped for this album: “Joe Elliott's passion, enthusiasm for music, as a fan, artist and friend is unquestionable and Ronan McHugh is a phenomenal engineer. Personally having worked with these guys before, it was a no brainer when they said they would like to produce the new BSR album. We are confident that this will be a huge leap forward in the evolution of BSR.” More...
