Black Star Riders Unveils Art For New Album "All Hell Breaks Loose"

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), has announced "All Hell Breaks Loose" as the title for a debut album on Nuclear Blast Entertainment. The album will be released in the U.K. on the 27th of May 2013, and the album artwork is now available below.

The artwork features a painting by Gil Elvgren (March 15, 1914 – February 29, 1980), the legendary U.S. painter best known for his work on pin-up girls, advertising. and illustration.

The artworks ties directly to the origins of the album title. Ricky Warwick explains: “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 seemed 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.”

“Bound For Glory,” the debut single from the album, saw its exclusive first play on Ken Bruce’s Radio 2 radio show on Thursday 21st March 2013. The song is now available to hear at this location.

The single and album were produced & mixed Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden, Aerosmith, Rush). Catch the band live:
